Short Beach plein air

After being in , nursing a cold all week, need some fresh air.
Mike, Monet and I went to short beach, one of my favorite places to paint.
Didn't want to stay out too long. So I just did an hour oil sketch.  It was great being out.
Caleb Smith Park
8x10 oil

I painted this 8x10 last Saturday morning before I went to the the emergency room, with some back and side paint
I was there all night while they ran test.  Thank God, it was just an urinary tract infection. It took most of the week to get back and then phase 2 a cold.  It seems everyone is getting the seasonal cold.
Stay well my fellow bloggers.  Happy Painting.

Atmosphere at the bluff

18x24 oil on board

Another recent painting I worked on this past month.  I love doing atmospheric paintings. This was done in the studio. Not posting on my blog has been something that I am trying to change.  Today I will get to see my good friend Hilda.  We are picking up our work from the Conklin House.  It is a yearly event we both take part in and we enjoy seeing one another. I will try to visit most of you, there has been so  many blogs that I look forward seeing. 

Sunday Morning post

Well once again I find myself painting without my painting friends.  Life is funny in a way, it is constantly changing.  My painting pals had some health issues or just would rather paint in the studio.  So it is Mike, Monet and me.  I thank God they are with me.  Happy painting everyone.  I am off to the 8am mass this morning. Enjoy you Sunday.

 Painted this on location but had to finish in the studio.  Trying to post from my tablet.  All these devices I have are driving me crazy.  I should just stick to painting. 
Happy Painting  everyone.
