Halloween 2010

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!
Enjoy ED!

leaves are changing slowly this year. We painted
a Maple tree with interesting light effects.

End of Summer 2010

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.

The Red Shoes 2010

My mother had saved these shoes down in the
basement.They used to be my shoes from back
in the 70's. I thought they would make an
interesting painting, since they had a lot of stories
they could tell ... Enjoy! ED

Sunday, May 23rd 2010

It looked like rain in the morning that day
around 6:00 am. Almost went back to sleep
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
interesting....Enjoy! Ed

Sunday, April 18 th Weeping Crab Apple

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

early....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

came from nowhere and almost knocked over my easel.
That's when I decided to quit while I was ahead....
Enjoy!!! Ed
