Sometimes a last minute drive up in the Shenandoah National Park produces some terrific painting ideas. This is one from late yesterday afternoon.

It has been awhile since I have been out to paint and I had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed it.
As with most Plein Air paintings that I do this one is almost finished but will get a little adjustment now that I have it in the studio. You can see the step-by-step progress in this collage.
Sunflower View I is an oil on canvas panel measuring 11″ x 14″. SOLD!
Yesterday I met the nice young man who was the recipient of the painting that I did recently of the “View from Harrisonburg”. (You can see the step by step photos here.) The painting was a graduation gift as he just graduated from JMU.
And he wanted to take a photo with me when he picked it up. And he promised to send me a photo of where he hangs the painting.
I enjoyed working with a delightful family last night for a special family reunion Paint Party. These ladies were so much fun and we laughed and painted and had a wonderful time. The “Moonlight Over the Mountain” theme was to honor their grandmother who often sang that song to them. What a special Paint Party! Thanks girls for letting me be a part of it.
I recently received a commission to paint a scene from Harrisonburg with the mountains in the background. It is a graduation gift. It took a little longer than normal because it’s a larger painting, 18″x24″ acrylic on canvas.
