This past Sunday there were five students at my West Springfield Michaels Acrylic Painting Workshop. Two were brand new! Lauri decided to join her husband Alex and daughter Lexi in learning to paint. She did great! We use as a source reference my oil painting of "On the Beach" which I painted plein air at Charlestown, R.I. years ago.
Fresh off the easel this weekend! "Honey Pot Road Autumn", oil on canvas panel, 16" x 20", I painted this from my own photos in my studio in the same style as my plein air painting but on a larger size canvas. I will paint more paintings in this larger format.

I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
