This morning I went to Washoe Lake to paint. It was 8am and just BEAUTIFUL. I listened to the waterfowl and watched as a flock of geese flew in and landed on the lake - which was smooth as glass. My painting friend could not make it, so it was just me and the birds. I did a one-hour pastel study. My challenge to myself was to paint mud and make it beautiful! Not sure I succeeded, but it was fun trying.
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!
