Working on Trees

In my new Cincinnati environment there are more trees. Therefore this winter I’m studying trees. Here is the first study, it’s from a local park. 9×12” Canvas Board

What I Did Last Summer Part 2

I went an Artist Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge in late June. We painted in Plein Air along the Big Sioux River. 8×10” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

I did a portrait of an old Dutch Elm stump, and had some fun with it! 9×12” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

Here is the quaint little A-frame we stayed in.

Mariemont Plein Air Outing

This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.

The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.


I chose to paint at the Mariemont Concourse, which overlooks the Ohio River Valley. I started early in the day, and finished in 3 hours, fortunately before the heat of the afternoon.


It was a great experience!


There were about 60 artists attending, who were friendly and welcoming.


Here I am with my painting that SOLD.

I’m practicing my trees. We will be moving to an area with more hills and trees. Cincinnati here I come! This is why my blog has been quiet, moving is too much work!

Frost Fest Plein Air (Part 1)

I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.
