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 came upon an older oil painting that I painted over 15 years ago. Oil on canvas, 24” x 30”, painted with heavily textured oil. I call it “Covered Wooden Bridge, Stanley Park”.
