This should make the fisherman in your life happy! It's cold and snowy now but not too long ago it looked like this. It's amazing how the seasons fly by! I'm enjoying every moment with my family this special time of year. 
I hope everyone has a wonderful time with friends and family these coming days! 
I'm so fortunate to have so many followers of my art and this little blog. You truly bring a smile to my face with every comment! Thanks for hanging around all these years! And welcome to my new readers!

Still Life Study in Blue



no longer available 



I did this study for the weekly challenge on daily paint works. I haven't painted anything in over a week 
so I wanted to keep this one loose and spontaneous. I think I'll have to retake the photo because it was dark when I took this shoot. Actually it was dark all day. Dark and rainy. This painting shows the mood I've been in for the last few days. I've been feeling tired and achy, maybe fighting something off.

French Country Decor...



sold


Well my Trinity County scene has gone through a lot of changes. I almost trash it all together but
I think I like it now. I haven't posted it yet because i'm still thinking about it. I may have chosen the wrong view to use.Anyway, I painted this little guy today outside. I'm trying to get my plein air equipment together. I had some help from a post by a fellow painter. Here's her blog with a link directly to her directions on making a pochade box.I have the tripod but still need to attach the box. I used eye hooks on one side of the box and put wire through itso it won't swing open all the way. I still need something to keep it from closing. Lauren used a hanger wire which sounds like a good idea. There's some drilling involved and something I have to get at the hardware store soI'll have to finish it in a few days. I've pain tined outside before but at a table.I'm trying to get set up so I can paint anywhere. It's only taken me about 2 or 3 years to do this; I think it's definitely time.

Today's my birthday and I'm going to spend it painting! I'm working on a large 24x30 piece. It's a beach scene of Redondo Beach. How I wish I could spend 
the day at the beach today...

This is my latest painting of a beautiful tree lit with the warmth of the sun. 

Happy Weekend!!!
