The Last Snow 2011

Painted with the group at Ringwood Sunday.
There was some wind gust but the temp was mid 30°s
nice for staying out a little longer. I painted on a 24x18
linen canvas. I wanted to use bigger brushes and have some fun
painting the clouds and sky. Anyway while walking back to the
parking lot a gust of wind below my canvas down the parking lot.

It landed face down on the pavement picking up every morsel of
sand and dirt it touched. I picked it up used a four inch brush to wipe
off as much as I could. Some of the clouds are still there I could make
them out. Anyway I cooled down a little and thought I still had a
great morning being up here!!!! Enjoy! ED

Dalvay Light phase 2

I worked on the painting over the weekend. I was
a little easier this time with the reds being dry. I
would like to finish the details on the light house
this week. I can't wait to bring it to the studio and
work up more color into the sand and grasses...
Enjoy!!! ED

Painting is like fishing

Sunday Feb 13th got up to paint looked like an
over cast uninspiring day. I threw my paints
and easel into the car and stopped for coffee on
my way up to the mountains. Temperature was
19° we walked over the ice crusted snow on near
the river edge. I was glad to capture this moment
on this day. You never know. Painting is like fishing.
Enjoy! ED

Painting From Memory

Coming home from work heading north on rt 287
I noticed out my car window a beautiful thing happening.
The warm air from the sun setting was hitting the cold air.
Creating a special effect that only mother nature could produce.
I was powerless to stop or take a picture so I took the snap shot
with my mind. I sketched it as I remembered it in the studio
last night. Enjoy!-Ed
