What I Did Last Summer Part 3

Just before I moved, I painted a 6×6” canvas for the BAC Fundraiser.

I went to one last meet up with “The Basement Painters” at the BAC in the newly renovated building. They have a wonderful new workspace with great company.

Here’s where the 6×6 paintings hung. It’s a very successful event.

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.

Although I’m happy with the painting, I want to have thicker paint like some of my other works. I did an experiment of leaving a dollop of each for 15 hours prior to adding the paint to my pallette although it was thicker, it was not thick enough to my liking. I will try leaving out longer before adding it. If I can find the right amount of time, it’s just a matter of planning ahead.

This is the first one I started yesterday.

And this the second, I did because I noticed my paint was thinner on the first one. I decided to try it again with my palette that had the thicker paint.
