Finished Color Charts

They are far from perfect, but I have finished my first round of paint charts which document all the tube paints I use and what they become when mixed with each other and lightened with white.  A very useful and meditative exercise.

Spring at Last!

First day of spring break and the boys got to go painting with me.  Not too much of a hardship, it was glorious at the beach, and they found plenty to do.

After some adjustments at home...I added a red wing blackbird that I saw today.

                                          oil, 8x10"

At the Dock

Silver Lake in Barnard, Vermont.  One of my favorite places with my favorite people.

                                           Oil, 12x12"

Day Two at the Lake

It's not really the same lake, but what the heck.  Value study of wet kid in a lake on a sunny day.

Indianola Part II

Yesterday's painting from Indianola beach again.  I must have just turned slightly from my spot the day before, because my paintings almost fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.  Not planned, but cool!

Indianola Beach

Yesterday's painting from Indianola beach.  I had to leave after an hour and a half, because the dog got too cold.  She needs to toughen up if she wants to be my painting companion.  She would probably rather stay home on the couch.

Rutland Tracks

This is a 6" VT landscape.  An exercise in simplifying a complex scene.  I found the little frame at an antique store here, $2 for 2 frames.

Jim by a Blue Chair

I painted this yesterday from a photo taken four years ago.  The boys are almost old enough to sit for paintings, with "incentive" of course.

Pink House in the sun.

Another Bremerton house.  It's raining and grey today, nice to paint sun.
