I just rejoined Oil Painters of America as an associate member and started an associate membership in the American Impressionist Society. Both are great national painters organizations which put on exhibitions each year. Their websites are www.oilpaintersofamerica.com and www.americanimpressionistsociety.org

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 had a great time Sunday afternoon with two students in my Plein Air Acrylic Painting Workshop. Picture below is of Phyllis and Jason. This was Jason's first time painting outdoors and he did great. After two hours the light faded but both will finish their paintings indoors with the photos that they took of the Westfield River.
I just received word back from an online art appraisal company regarding the value of this oil painting that we have. It is a George Carpenter oil on masonite board measuring 20" x 30" image area. It is titled "Cundy's Harbor". We received it as a gift from a friend who was moving some years ago. The appraisal came in as $1000 to $1500. Jean my wife loves it and remembers seeing it in a window display in a gallery in Rockport, MA years ago.
