Dear fellow bloggers,
It saddens me to let you know that one of the wonderful artist we know, Victor Errington has passed away. He was not only a great artist, but also and good friend.
He has shared is art with so many of us and for me personally has encouraged and supported my endeavors. He will be missed. In closing, like Vic would say, all the best to you all. Joan

|That time of year when my work goes on display for the|
month of December.
|The library is perfect for displaying my work. It has the gallery|
in the main hall entrance where people can see the work.
Everyone is so kind and it is always wonderful get feedback about
|This year I had a variety of sizes. Generally I work small|
when doing plein air. But it's alway nice to show my larger pieces.
|I also like the odd formats, the atmospheric look of the sky is one|
of my favorite subjects to paint.
|These two larger pieces were done a few years ago, I don't show the|
that often. Thought they needed an airing.
|The tea pot is one of my favorites, it was done last year when I took|
on the 30 day challenge.
The larger piece is a 18x24 of Sayville marsh, another favorite place
to paint on location
|The smaller pieces, the smallest one on the bottom is a watercolor|
that took the longest to paint. Using the old masters technique of
coating the paper with a gloss medium allowing the erasable surface
of the paper. It took forever to paint.
|This was of Hoyt Farm on the Island. Loved the mud and frozen|
puddle , wanted to capture that on canvas.
