47. Through the Woods

This is a 18x36 that I have started - no t finished yet, but I like where it is going.  It is based on a plein-aire painting that was square in format and cool in tone.  I am trying to keep this loose and warm!

46. Evening's Call

12"x 16"

I have repainted this landscape three times and finally am really happy with it. I reworked the composition of the grasses, so that they lead your eye into the paintings, and I changed the key of the paintings to a warmer tone.  I really looked at the hard edges versus the lost edges!  It is loosely based on a painting that I did in Maine.

44. Big Clouds

I finally finished this one - it started off loose then got tight and too dark and finally has finished up light and loose again!  It is 36x36 and I am really pleased with it!

41. Morning Fog

This is the last big painting that I am going to start for my open studio (11/14 and 11/15)  It is 24x24.  I chose a 24x24 canvas because I have a frame that size!  But I am not sure that this painting will look good in it (pretty sure that it won't!)  Oh least I like the painting!  It is pretty dark in my studio right now - I will try to get a better photo in the morning!

39. Dusk at Central Park

I am hoping to finish this one for open studio event which is coming up.  It is based on an 8x10 that I did of this view. this painting is 19x25.  The challenge has been to keep the looseness and spontaneity of the small painting (see below).  Viewing them together - it looks much darker than the original - I will have to go back and check my painting and see if it is the painting or the photo!
