September 2007



3 I have been busy, busy, busy! Freeing up time from the daily effort to produce a painting has given me opportunities to create in many ways. I've been doing the podcasts for iTunes, and have the first month of daily paintings online--October 12 through November 10, 2005, and will have the rest of the month up and running by this weekend coming up.

The painting for you today is one I did with acrylics, showing noonish light, and it is from the Somes Sound area in Maine. This is mostly palette knife, and done to clean out the acrylic boxes before coming back home. I really laid it on thick! It is being shipped back to Gail Ribas, who is in charge of the Acadia Workshop Center, and she will be adding it to her collection! It measures 9 x 12.

I received the Harness Tracks of America auction catalog in the mail yesterday, and one of my paintings is featured on the cover! The auction is online here, where you can scroll down and see my painting bottom center. There are many beautiful works of art to view. I have two paintings to ship to this fund-raising auction in October. I have lot numbers 22 and 83, and have to say the color sure stands out compared to others.

Five more of my paintings are in Maine at the "Dog and Pony Show" at Skyline Carriage Museum, on Skyline Farm. One already sold opening night, and I have hopes that perhaps the rest will not return. (Note: Three sold!) All are from the Daily Paintings and it was as if I were packing up old friends!

Friday it is off to Georgia, to teach the full workshop in Dawsonville, so I've been getting my materials ready and preparing to leave for just over a week. I have to make lists of chores that need doing while I'm gone.

One more bit of news--my web sites have gotten so big that it was time to put a search tool to find paintings on them. And you can search them now! It is now so much easier to find pages with the art you're seeking, and I'm using it too, finding work when a collector purchases a painting so I can mark it sold. Please find that search link on the lower left side of every page! It searches not only the current site you're on, but the other two as well.

Welcome to another new collector, Jacob Cohen of Rockville, Maryland, who purchased not one, but two cat paintings ("Cat Blue" and "Black Cat") from the ebay store. today. Thank you!

Life is wonderfully good right now.

Imagine if you will, an early morning in September, in the piney woods of North Georgia, on the back of a good, 17-hand horse headed out for an early morning ride. All of that is what happened for me this morning, and here's a photograph of me on "Sister" --now I hope you can see that she is a white mare, because the flash of my grin may blind you a bit!
I'm in Georgia, on the Sunday beginning a week-long Color Boot Camp tomorrow, along with my hostess Fay, doing a welcome this evening for 12 attendees. I'll be posting my demonstration paintings for all the Color Boot Campers out there who want to see more examples of how the Color System works in this light.

In this photograph, you can see the Georgia mist rising--it was a glorious morning!

Again, thank you for allowing me to come into your life a bit. As I close, here's an image of the some the trail we traversed... beautiful.

Here's my first demonstration painting for the Color Boot Campers in Georgia this evening. I hadn't lifted my brushes since leaving California, and was so itchin' to get to a painting by today (three days later) that even before the folks came in for the evening's welcome, I was at it. The result's a 9 x 12 acrylic of a section of the Amicalola River where we were yesterday, and I'm pleased with the outcome so far. I may work some more on it with the light of day, however tonight was the welcome and orientation for the week ahead. The hustle and bustle of the new arrivals and the warm welcome by all was delightfully distracting. A wonderful group of artists are here, and the next five days will be challenging and full of laughter.

Very satisfying to see the acrylic paints in their pill boxes make it successfully in my checked luggage. No leaks and still loads of wet paint!

Now here's a picture of one of Fay's terriers, Lizzie, who is making my stay at the farm more dog-happy. She's adopted me and was my nighttime companion, easing the missing of my own beloved "Q" who is waiting back in California.

I'm just now getting around to posting the work from the Georgia workshop. It's been a full week, accented by the arrival of one of those airport colds when I came home--nasty stuff, and being under the weather glued to a tissue box meant I could only scan the web for.... what else? A rat terrier puppy, like Lizzie. And tenacious as I am, I found many.

The one that just stole my heart for a myriad of reasons is a short-legged, type B Teddy Roosevelt terrier, and "Onslow" will be coming back with me from Chicago in November. Of course I need to share his picture with you!

Now that the puppy news is out of the way, let me say that the workshop in Georgia was WONDERFUL! I'm coming back, looks like the second week of May of next year to do a reconnaisance mission to get those Boot Campers back on track, and add a few more Boot Camp Masters to the ever-growing list. You might mark your calendars and contact me if you'd like to be on a waiting list for the official announcement.

I'll post pictures from the workshop in tomorrow's email (thanks Fay!), along with another painting. Oh, yes, the "Bessie" oil above was done as part of the lecture and demonstration for the evening, almost sunset light, and is a 5 x 7 oil. It's in the hands of new collector Cheri Burchard of Dawsonville, Georgia.

Now, if you check back a couple days in my blog, you'll see that I painted this image once before--in acrylics! This is an oil version, done to demonstrate morning light as it falls on an area of the Amicalola River in Georgia, and those of you "Color Boot Campers" will recognize why it is so obviously morning light!

The subject lent itself to instructing on how to convey time of day when one doesn't have the sky to help out. And of course, it also validates why one's source material should not be the determination of which color to use! Notice the difference in handling the rock face in sunlight between the two paintings. This 12 x 16 oil is now in the hands of Mary Pless, of Dunwoody, Georgia.

And also here's an image of the wonderful facility at Fay's for workshops! We're all working away at our easels, and there are halogen spotlights above each table! That's Sue (retired art teacher from Florida) on the left, painting moonlight in her inimitable style. The reproductions on the walls are Richard Stone Reeves' work. And all above the horse stalls below! No "roughing it" here!
