A few weeks ago I took a photo of the Shenandoah River while walking down the path to the dog park. It was the perfect reference photo for a landscape painting for the kids class this week. I had four boys….what a challenge. 🙂 They made beautiful paintings of our lovely fall landscape here in the Shenandoah Valley. Great job!

Last Saturday we had the Festival of Leaves in downtown Front Royal. Even though it was a rainy day we had people coming by Delilah’s to see all the new work we have by the wonderful artists who are there. I set up outside in a tent and started a new vineyard painting. Here is the start of it.

Last Thursday and Friday while working at Delilah’s I painted on the front porch. I love painting outside on beautiful days and Thursday and Friday were lovely. And it’s fun to talk to all the people who come by and stop to see what I am doing. I took several photos while I worked so you can see the progress of this painting. Virginia Vineyard View is an acrylic on canvas measuring 16″x20″ and will be available at Winding Road Cellars soon. (UPDATE: This painting SOLD…even before it made it to the winery. WooHoo!)

I get invited to paint at special events from time to time. A good friend of mine is manager at Peebles here in town and invited me to paint there for a special promotion they were doing last spring. They had me back this weekend. I painted a larger version of a small painting (Virginia WIne I, see it here) that I did a few weeks ago and I enlisted a helper. Often, when painting on location, I invite kids to “help” me. And usually they jump right in. This little girl was so much fun. She helped me paint for a while and then she did her grandmothers make-up at a table they had set-up for people to try out some new things. Adorable.
Virginia Wine II, is acrylic on canvas, 18″x24″ and is almost finished. I still have a little more to do to it but we got a great deal done at the event.

I did this painting that I call Virginia Wine for a special request this week. It is an acrylic on 6″ x 8″ canvas.
As I painted it I tried to take photos because several of you have told me that you enjoy seeing how the paintings develop. So here you are:
