After I moved away from the stream and the dogs, our painting group and teacher moved up the trail into the trees. Here I worked on the rocks and trees. I am trying to do the late afternoon light on the trees, but I do not have the same talent of Albert Handell, but I keep trying. His demos and his pointers and critiques of my work in progress really help.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
