Last Sunday I decided to paint another Grandmother's Garden painting while the summer flowers were still in bloom!
I had a great time in Wells and Ogunquit, Maine for three days last week on vacation. I painted the three paintings below plein air.

This weekend I was able to finish off a spring painting from my own photo of Veterans Park in Westfield and also plein air painting in South Hadley of Mt. Tom. There were many clouds that day and made a nice contrast with the Ct. River.

There were six students at my Westfield Creative Arts acrylic painting class last night at the RInnova building in Westfield. Phyllis brought her finished sunset sailing boat boat as seen below. An excellent realist painting! Each student works on a different scene from my numerous color copies of landscapes, seascapes, floral pictures or they bring their own as Phyllis did and work at their own pace. Plenty for room for more students!!

I just got an online art appraisal of this oil painting that was found by the side of the road in Westfield by my sister who gave it to me. Things people throw away! It is by Cape Cod artist Marilyn Schofield dated 89 or 80. It looks like a Cape Cod winter shore scene. It’s appraisal comes in as $200-$400. My wife Jean loved the painting and we framed it!
