Today I went with a painting friend to our local arboretum and we found a cool shady spot and enjoyed painting the flowers. The employed gardener (or was she a volunteer?) was happy I was painting an area she planted this year. So I named it after her!
"Summer Cove Escape" 10 x 8 oil
Yesterday I hiked down a path to a quiet cove beach with a painting friend, Monika, and we painted and then dipped in the cool waters of Lake Tahoe. What a great day!
"Summertime at the Lake"
Before I met up with my friend, I was close to Sand Harbor. I took a painting I had done previously and did more work on it at the exact same spot. I like it better now.
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!
