This Saturday May 25th I will be conducting an acrylic painting workshop in conjunction with Westfield Creative Arts. The workshop will be from 2-4pm and we will meet at the Rinnova Building on Elm Street, Westfield at 1:30pm to organize. The class is in acrylics but watercolor and oil painting are welcome. We will decide on the location to paint but it could be on the Westfield bridges painting the Westfield River or Grandmother's Garden. Fun time! See www.westfieldcreativearts.com for info and to register.

“Red Vase with Red Roses”, dry brush watercolor, image area is 8 1/2” x 11 1/2”, I completed this painting from my photos while on our anniversary trip to Newport, R.I. which was a gift from our kids! Since it was overcast and gray I took advantage of the opportunity to complete this watercolor on the balcony of the hotel room.

I started painting this scene of the Westfield River and its surroundings last night. The clouds turned into beautiful peachy and gray colors shortly before the light disappeared and it became dark. I will return to finish off the painting at the same time of day.

Yesterday while painting on the Westfield bridge the owner of Richard's Grinders stopped by and asked for me to display my paintings in his stores. He has empty walls and wanted to have some color and artwork on them! Also, the offer was for my students paintings as well. I am happy to show them for the month of April. Many thanks to Brian the owner of Richard's Grinders!! I will post the show in April.

I had a great time this weekend painting outside (plein air painting). Saturday I painted the Hampton Ponds painting in oil on a 16" x 12" fighting the strong winds! Sunday afternoon I painted on the Westfield bridge. I have to make edits in my home studio and then will post the final painting.

Discovered this older oil painting in my studio inventory that is quite appropriate for this season. Painted in 2005, it is a 24" x 30", oil on canvas with a wooden frame, available.

I had a great time Saturday afternoon painting outside on the Westfield River bridge this time looking at the river from a different angle. Finished the 12" x 16" painting in about 3 hours before dark! I made some final edits in the studio.

I had a full weekend of painting! I had a acrylic class at the Hadley Michaels and started the Easthampton Autumn acrylic painting which I finished Saturday. Also, finished an acrylic painting of a winter brook in Mt. Tom, Holyoke. Finally I went outside to paint plein air of the Westfield River with a view from the renovated railroad bridge which I painted in oil. Great weekend!

I had a great time Saturday afternoon painting outside (plein air) for the first time this year! I dressed well and wasn't affected by the cold at all! I made final edits in my studio the next day. This is the Tin Bridge in Westfield, painted in oil on a 12" x 16" canvas mounted panel. I plan on painting in the snow again! The snow shows many different colors with the atmospheric light reflected on it and makes a great subject! Also, I tried to capture the swift moving brook with its reflected colors!
