I had a great time painting plein air another historic building in Westfield. This time the old train station. I have a photo of it below when I started and my impressionistic painting of it. The light changed throughout the afternoon and the colors and shadows on the building changed.

I had a great time at the Big E in the New England Center building doing this oil painting demo of Grandmother's Garden as a member of the Agawam Community Artisans and Artists

I painted this "Maine Coast" oil painting from my photo that I took last July when I was on vacation in Wells, Maine. It is oil on canvas, 18" x 24" and I used thick textured oil painting. Great fun painting in my studio on a rainy day when I couldn't paint outside!

I had a great time Sunday afternoon in the center of Westfield painting this historic building that used to be the post office decades ago! I still need to work on it and put in the final touches which will take a couple of hours. I will download the final painting when it is ready!
|Almost finished! At a busy rotary in downtown Westfield!|
|Outlined the shape of the building, placed the sky with clouds and started blocking in the colors of the building.|

I rediscovered an old oil painting from years ago that I painted with thick textured paint. I cleaned off the dust and placed it in my inventory!
What do you paint on a rainy day and you can't go outside? Paint from a painted study and color copy! I finished this larger 20" x 16" painting on canvas with textured oil paint in my studio. I started it on another rainy day and was waiting for the opportunity to finish it!
I went through my stack of old paintings and found this one that I painted years ago (no date on the back). It is a very textured oil painting titled "Cape Cod Sunset" and is a 16" x 20" oil on canvas.
