Mixed Medium Watercolor on Vellum 5" X 7"
This little painting was one our projects in the watercolor classes I am now teaching. I used a sharpe marker to outline the drawing, then painted it in with watercolor. Next, I used a painting I had done as a demo on clouds, which I placed behind the transparent vellum. It was a fun experiment for the class in using their brush control when painting on this type of paper. The work from all the students was very impressive. It was nice to see how each student had their own style of using this technique. When this was laying around in my studio, my grand daughter, Audrey brought it to me and said she really liked it. She asked if she could have it. I told her I had to frame it first. I put in in a frame and now it is hers for her bedroom.

6 X 6 Oil
This little painting is my attempt to paint like Kevin Macpherson. Very painterly with broad brush strokes. Up close very abstract and step back it looks almost real. I painted this one in about 30 minutes once I got set up. It is a place in Milford, Ohio. My last paint out with a Group of Ohio Plein Air Painters.
16 X 20 Oil
I painted this on a Masonite Board. I used acrylic gesso to prime and this left a texture.
This is a painting I started last year at a Plein Air Paint Out in Columbus, Indiana. This one goes to my daughter Kelly. She loves to read and really likes the scene.

Time to start a new chapter in Ohio. Currently looking for a studio space in the Maineville area. For now, I will be working from home. I love the new home with it's open floor plan. There is lots of light to work in. I have already contacted the local Warren County Arts Council and look forward to getting to know the local artists.
