​It's Time to Paint at the Lake!

March through the beginning of May has been incredibly hectic. My solo show, Seasons, is now over as is the 2019 RiverArts Studio Tour. I’m heading to Lake Muskoday to paint. I hope to immerse myself in more plein air work using pastel and watercolors.

I find it hard to get back into a serious rhythm of painting after big shows. Luckily, I have two commissions to get me seriously back into the studio.

For the 2019 studio tour I decided to create a demo of the same subject in different mediums and on different surfaces. Here it is. I was getting very sick of that bag of tomatoes by the end but did enjoy seeing how the mood and image changed when the medium or surface changed.

Have a great summer and check in to see the latest paintings from the studio.
