Painting at "Fadley's Landing"


 On a beautiful last day of Summer traveled down to the Severn and painted this little sketch of Brewers Pond from Mr. Fadley's backyard. It turned into a little 19th cen-like ptg and looks great in a gold frame.This is part of my Peninsula series. Mr. Fadley's property lies on an incredibly serene hidden pond off the Severn. 5pm 8x8 oil on birch panel

Gale Force at Chapel Pond

 Maggie inspecting after everything blew over. 

Went out to Chapel Pond to greet the dawn and paint. Vry strong winds were coming directly at me and I had my light easel so I painted with one hand and held on with the other. Had a great time, though, chasing the clouds until I let to get some paint out of my bag and a big gust took it all away. Stayed on the easel, though and didn't get dirty. Just set back up and painted some more. I got pretty messy though. What a great way to start the day!

Painting on Phelps Brook with Maggie.


Bear Rock

 Yesterday we spent the day painting on Phelps Brook behind Bear Miller's home. This rock figures in many of Bear's paintings so I titled it Bear Rock, it is also bare rock and it resembles a bear. The rules state "never put your subject in the middle" but I thought it worked in a square. 10x10in oil on canvas
