Yesterday there were five students at my Beginning Acrylic Painting Class at the Westfield Creative Arts in the Rinnova building in downtown Westfield. We used the photo below of a Hampton Ponds autumn scene with water reflections as our source material. In two hours all five students did very well and those who didn't finish took home their photo copy to finish off the the painting at home. Next Monday we will paint a floral scene most likely using a Renoir or Monet painting of flowers as our reference. Check out www.westfieldcreativearts.com to see info about these classes.
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!
