Here are some paintings I have been doing recently

So sorry I don't post much these days!
"Pond at Donner Summit" 6 x 6 oil

I seem to spend more time posting to Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters blog (RTPAP).  The reason is that I have to post to it each week  - to announce the location of the next paint-out.  We have been painting outside for over 2 years now.  Wow!  It is a lot of fun, but a lot of work on my part to research the locations, obtain driving directions and photos of the place.  I also research links for further information about the place.  If you are interested in looking at this blog, visit it at  Local people can subscribe to it by email so they get each post in their email inbox each week.

RTPAP has given me a lot of practice and I have painted each week!  It has prepared me for the following Plein Air Event and Competition:  North Tahoe Plein Air Event 2014:

"Paige Meadows" 8 x 10 oil
These two paintings are going to be at the exhibit and sale this weekend at North Star Wine and Food Festival in the area of Petra's Wine Shop in the Village at North Star at Tahoe (Truckee).  The top one is being donated to benefit North Tahoe Arts Center (the non-profit organization that is putting on the North Tahoe Plein Air Event).  The second painting will be for sale and perhaps in the competition for the same event.

We will be painting for the next 3 days and entering our paintings in this same event.  We are supposed to paint the North Tahoe area.  It is a lot of fun and a lot of my painting friends are in it.
