Lately I've been trying to do more work outside (just when it started to rain around here). I don't always have time to drive around looking for stuff to paint, so sometimes I just set up in my back yard. My neighbors probably don't like that I turn up the music in the studio so i can here it outside, but hey, I don't like to hear their dog bark all day either. Pansies 6x8"
This is a demo painting I did last week for a small group of 4 students in what I'm calling "semi-private" lessons. This house in Nicasio has been painted a thousand times I'm sure, but this is my first. As you can see, it was overcast, but fortunately not raining. Go Left 9x12"
One day I drove around town for 20 minutes looking for something to paint, came home, and ended up painting this just down the street from my house. Spruce and Park 10x12"
