Old Island Days Art Show

I realize I haven't blogged much, but its because I have been busy and I have been getting ready for the Old Island Days Art show. Here are 3 new painting for the show. I have zero expectations much like I did last year but I am bringing smaller stuff and more prints. Lets see if I can make my own stimulus package in my own tent. I like this show because it is right in my own backyard so to speak. I can go home at night and put my feet up and if I need some help there are usually plenty of people I know who would lend a hand and have a glass of wine with when its all done. So if your not doing anything this weekend and are in the area the show will be Saturday and Sunday the 27th and 28th down on Whitehead Street between Greene Street and Eaton Street. Hopefully I will be where I was last year somewhere in front of Kelley's.

Happy Valentines Day

Looking back I realized I started this blog just a little over a year ago. Lots has happened, good and bad, but this year seems to have flown by. Looking back I see Valentines day was a rare foggy day in the keys. Today is bright and cold. Not a lot has changed as I still have flowers on my counter with chocolate and wine and cards. Lucy Made a wonderful salmon chowder last night followed by a warm apple crisp with vanilla ice cream.... YUM. Here is a new painting from this weeks painting group and another one from my studio. I hope everyone enjoys the day and that you at least have a little chocolate to make your day sweeter.

Thursday painting

What a beautiful day, breezy and warm. We painted today out by the Sugarloaf Airport in a lovely field with goldenrod coming into bloom. We painted as sky divers floated down in the next field. Here is my next attempt at my earth tone challenge.

Rain Rain

Its not often that we have a full day of rain, but today woke with it on the windows and it hasn't let up all day. Everything is damp, but at least its fairly warm. Its a good day to sit at the easel and get some work done....
