A Toast

                                                                  A Glass of Wine
                  The Sun is finally shining. For a person that paints en plein air it is a very good
                  thing.  A Glass of Wine is done with acrylic paint and acrylic ink.  Was a lot of
                  fun but with better weather my friends and I can go back out doors.

Plein Air Painting

I paint Plein Air with a group of ladies for fun.  It has been at least 6 months since we have been able to get together and have a day of painting in the out doors.  We are "The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge".  Four of us were able to make it this last week.  It was a cool but beautiful day.

Plein Air

     The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge (Plein Air group I paint with) have not had many opportunities to paint this last year.  We did go yesterday and is was a beautiful day but very windy.
We went to Explorer Park on The Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia.  There is so much beauty it is difficult to choose the scene you want to put on canvas.
     After painting we had a meeting and planed where to go for our next Plein Air meeting.  We also had lunch and just enjoyed the outdoors.

Misty Day

Misty Day

For the last few weeks we have not had ideal weather for Plein Air Painting. 
I am looking forward to an event October 11th-14th 2018 in Roanoke Virginia.
A 2-day workshop with Ha Ou Hou (, our internationally
 recognized judge, and two days Plein Air Painting. 

Painting above "Misty Day" is a painting I did last year at the "Plein Air Roanoke" 
event at South Peak.  This year there will be several locations where you will be able to paint.  
Will be a lot of fun.

The Spring Home Show at the Salem Civic Center (in Salem,VA) opened this afternoon.  It was a windy day today but the sun was shining. There is a weather prediction that we may see Snow tomorrow afternoon. The Show will continue thru Saturday and Sunday.  I and nine other artists would like to see you there and hope that the snow will wait for another day.
