30. Daydreaming

 My goal for this week was to complete 3 pieces to submit to a show.  So I decided that I should paint to the sizes of frames that I have.  Makes sense, right?  Then I came across a stash of these 18x36 canvas panels, and I was off painting this crazy size for which I have no frames.  But this is my 2nd one ( the river painting on my last post was also 18x36, but horizontal).  Anyway, I am enjoying the size and the format.  I think that this is finished, so I am posting the progress photos below.  I often forget to take them, but I am usually glad when I do!

29. On the River

While I have been painting a lot, I have gotten out of the habit of posting.  So here is the progress on this painting.  It is 18x36.  I really like the sense of light, end of day quality to it!

From a collector

Someone sent me this photo yesterday of one of my paintings all framed and hanging in her entry!  I always love to see where my paintings find their home!

28. Dusk

I painted this to take to a gallery next week - it is 16x20.  I chose this size because I have a 16x20 frame.  I have been interested lately in the last light of the day - dusk.  This is based on sketches and photos near Mechanicsburg, PA

27. Last Light (more progress)

I have been remiss in posting - but I have actually been painting A LOT.  I just got out of the habit of posting - which is terrible since I just read a book on how to improve your habits...Anyway, this painting is just about finished - the photo is a little darker than it really is.
