The temperature was around 38° in the morning.
I painted along a stream where I noticed a burning
bush near the edge of the water. It kind of reminded
me of a spring scene because of the light pink colors
in the leaves of the bush. A black ferret was running
along the rocks. That made my day!

Over the July and August months I spent a lot
of time down the Jersey Shore. The surf was
ruff this year with the many storms off the coast.
I was inspired by the determination of the
surf bums. Looking for the perfect ride.

Its nice to get a good subject to
paint every once in a while. I really
wanted to get as much done as possible
that night at the studio. I used a 11x14
linen canvas. Lots of fun ... Enjoy! ED

but got dressed and made it up to Skylands.
There was a mist rolling over the mountains
but it never rained. The conditions were really

Got up to Skylands park this Sunday. I was the
first one there that morning. We decided to take
a hike over to the wild rhododendron's. Some of
us went down to the swamp to paint the primroses
in bloom.....Enjoy! ED

Got up late on Sunday. Rushed to get my paints
got to the park a little later. Saw the weeping crab apple
out in the distance. The temperature was about 42˚ and
sunny. A few pedals from one of the blooming trees blew
down and stuck to my canvas. The value matched perfectly.
A little assurance from mother nature....Enjoy!!! ED

Finally got out to Skyland on Sunday. Everyone
came out to paint that day. I painted the crab apple
grove. They must of just bloomed. I missed out on the
cherry blooms this year because everything bloomed

Got to work on a painting I started two weeks ago.
The coniditions were the same. Except it was
only 36° outside. I had a great day that morning.
The birds were making a racket "Spring is coming."
Enjoy! .... Ed

Went up to paint this Sunday. I wanted to get
at least one more painting of the snow before it
all disappears. Its getting lighter in the morning
the temperature was around 32˚. A gust of wind
came from nowhere and almost knocked over my easel.
That's when I decided to quit while I was ahead....

I finally got out to paint this Sunday, the
temperature was around 29° and blustery winds.
Great to see snow on the ground. Haven't painted
outside this year in a several weeks. Feels good to
get outside again to paint.
