It’s all about the color

Ed. All 3 paintings have been sold. Delighted that 3 of my flower paintings from last summer have been selected for VIVID Expressions of Intense Color. Hope you can visit the exhibition.

Trying something different at the Lake

Today was gloriously 50 degrees! a “get some fresh air while painting” kind of day. It was a quick painting session to try out painting on aluminum flashing – yes, the same stuff that’s on your roof. When the 3 coats of acrylic gesso were dry; I got out the door and into the “wild”. I attached the panel to a slim board with Velcro dots. Next time I’ll try double-sided tape. So slick even with 3 coats. This will take some practice.

Used a double primary palette to keep things simple – first day out this year and of course I forgot things. ie pliers for the stuck paint tube cap, etc.

Ventured out . . . Townshend Lake

A Snowy Stop for Tea, gouache on paper approx 7×6 inches

Ventured 5 miles north to a snow-obscured view of the West River and surrounding mountains. Painted 2/7/22 #driverseatart #gouache

Before the flurries began

A lot of time, not so much focus

Unfinished work, summer 2021

There’s been a lot of time spent burning fuel on Route 2 but this autumn should be more focused with Vermont at its best.
