The Joy of Spring finds a new home in Hershey, PA. This is one of my favorite trees. I love the combinations of the magentas and blues in this one. I am so happy it has found a good home with the Wright family.
|This wonderful couple with their new painting.|
See, I really have been working and not just traveling around having fun.

While I have been out traveling the northeast with art shows, Rob was able to fly up for a little mini- vacation. I picked him up at the Boston Airport and we headed up to New Hampshire. Why New Hampshire - why not - we hadn't been there before.
|Our first stop was in Salem NH at America's Stonehenge. |
I had no idea that we had our own Stonehenge.
|What's a tourist attraction without an Alpaca?|
|Next we hit Merrimack to visit the Anheuser-Busch Brewery|
|Okay, beer fans, here's the proof, they really use hops. |
And there was a car show, how cool! I want this car.
|If you are going to drive a bug it should be a kegerator|
|After a night in North Conway, we head to Echo Lake to |
hike up to Cathedral Ledge
|What a view|
|Robbie on the Ledge!!|
Good times. Good bye big sky!

I spent the first week of August in Provincetown, MA just cycling and painting.
I went to take a week-long plein air workshop with Lois Griffel in Cape Cod this summer. Lois studied and taught at the Cape Cod School of Art with Henry Hensche, and took over the directorship of the school for 20 plus years after Henry. Needless to say, Lois is a great teacher and has a lot of knowledge and experience to share.
|This is my painting step up for the week. Easel and paint box on top |
and the paints and brushes in the bag. A great way to get around!
|Day 4 of the workshop, we painted in a public garden in East Provincetown.|
|My new artist friend, Roesmarie, looking for the perfect spot.|
|Lois is painting a demo. I learned a lot about mapping out my values and temperatures first.|
|Lois begins to add the color after values have been established.|
|Everyone asks how I paint while camping, well here's the studio tent.|
|This is a great shot I took while gallery hopping one evening.|
I think it will make a great painting. You know how I like to paint bikes.
|The pier at P'Town|
|What a fun tourist shop. Great color!|
|This will make a great painting as well.|
It was a great trip and I learned a lot. I can't wait to hit the studio!
