Portsmouth Arts Guild will be starting next Wednesday morning,October 7, 9AM-noon. It's a class that's geared to people who are beginners or intermediate, so if you've wanted to try portrait painting but don't know how to start, this is a good class to learn. We work from live models each week, with a limited palette. Oils and acrylics.

Last week I was part of a show and anniversary celebration held by the Rhode Island Federation of Garden Clubs. Fifteen pieces of art, mostly paintings, were interpreted by an equal number of floral designers. Above is my painting "Forsythia" and the interpretation by talented floral designer Candace Morgenstern. (It was held in the greenhouse at Roger Williams Park in Providence, hence all the palm trees in the background. Makes it a bit hard to isolate the floral piece.) It was fun being part of this and seeing how Candace interpreted what I painted, as well as seeing the other fourteen pieces.
(And I guess they liked my piece because it made the front page of the newsletter!)
The painting is oil on canvas, 20" x 20" unframed, and is for sale. Email me if you're interested.

Trying to take advantage of the waning days of summer to do some landscape painting. This was painted at my new favorite wildlife refuge on a gray, slightly foggy morning. The color's not quite right in this photo, but it's as close as I could get.

Funny how you can live somewhere a long time and still not know all the little tucked away places. I just discovered the Rayner Wildlife Refuge aka Nockum Hill in Barrington and spent a lovely couple of undisturbed hours there painting this road through the farm fields.

I'm realizing more and more how important it is to paint wet into wet to get the look I want. But sometimes you have to walk away for an hour to let the paint get tacky, so you can put paint on top of wet paint without having it lift off. This seems to be most important with with transparent colors like alizarin crimson.
