Michelle and I painted at Patty's house this afternoon en plein air - this is a painting of the farm next door to Patty. It was a perfect day to paint outside! Patty and Rose were wimps - they stayed in the house! ;-)

Rainy Afternoon at Provico

Tonight I finished this plein air painting that I started last Friday while plein air painting with Michelle Walker and Chris Leeper at Provico in Botkins, Ohio.  It was a misty, cold, rainy day and I tried to capture that feeling in this painting.  The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on a canvas panel.  It was such a privilige painting with Chris Leeper.

Happy White Rabbit

This is todays daily creation - a small oil painting 6" x 6" painted on a canvas panel. Michelle brought the ceramic rabbit and the material to our painting group today and I provided the old enamel pitcher.  What fun!

Still Life Under the Influence

Well, I wasn't going to paint today since I was planning to help take-in paintings at the Riverside Arts Center. After our snow yesterday and the winds expected last night, I really didn't want to drive through snow drifts! So - I e-mailed that I couldn't come and stayed home today. Early this a.m. my friend Michelle called and asked if I wanted to paint this afternoon (the snow drifts don't scare her!) - so....we set up a still life and painted. During our session, my husband made us Irish Coffee - hence the reference to painting "under the influence." :)
This painting is an oil painted on a 9" x 12" canvas panel
