8x10 oil on masonite
Working from old photos today. The weather here in Ohio is dreary, cool, and windy so thinking beach and sun really lifted my spirits. I have to say I wouldn't want to miss fall in Ohio. The trees are gorgeous, much more on a sunny day however. I should paint some fall scenes, shouldn't I?

11x14 oil on canvas panel
Getting ready for an art show at the Delaware Arts Castle. This is my first juried show and I'm not sure what to expect. Learning all sorts of things, like framing, preparing my biography, pricing.
One thing I noticed about myself while painting this piece was that I needed to walk away from the easel every so often to keep myself from working too quickly and from losing my zone of concentration and creative spirit. Being a little ADD I think, painting larger pieces takes perserverance on my part.
