I visited my local Farmer’s Market a couple of weeks ago and ran into a number of folks who follow me on this blog, on Facebook, or Instagram and have been excited to see the Colonial Williamsburg Series continuing. I was gifted with a lot of positive feedback but one comment was repeated by a… Continue reading Fast or Slow: It’s Relative
I actually finished this painting some time ago but then was having internet issues and a few other distractions happening and while I posted the first few days of the progress. I never posted the final painting. This painting will be part of the Two Artist Show at the Stewart Gallery on Main in Gloucester… Continue reading Ox Cart Man Finished
This is going to be, I believe, the largest in the Williamsburg series, at least the largest I’m submitting for the two artist show at the Stewart Gallery in May. It is 30×20 inches. Oil on linen with oil ground. I really liked working on the linen. I wasn’t fighting the fabric as much. However,… Continue reading Colonial Williamsburg: A Break Between Tours
She is finished. This is the smallest of the Colonial Williamsburg series. It is 12×9″ oil on canvas glued to a wood panel.

Finished. This one will be exhibited in the Labor Day Show at the RAL Art Center August 28 – September 30th. Hoping for a quick sale. It is 16X20″. I did invest in a nice gold frame for this one.
My husband and I took a little overnighter to Easton, MD Thursday and Friday with hopes of seeing the juried competing artists at work. We had previously planned to arrive on Wednesday, but due to a family issue, had to postpone our trip by a day. Which meant, for the most part, we missed most… Continue reading Plein Air Easton: Hot
I was privileged to introduce 9 folks to oil painting last weekend. On day two I asked how many might be interested in a Level II Beginner’s Class and all 9 raised their hands. So, for them, I’m going to create one the third weekend in October. In addition, since there appears to be enough… Continue reading Spreading the Addiction
