Even on grey days when i dont feel like going out into the world, thats no excuse for not creating art! Opened the window and painted the panoramic view from my studio at the pendleton art center in cincinnati. Im really happy with how this one turned out.
Spent the day carving a new woodcut at the log cabin print shop. Its going to be a 2 color/block print. Im 70% finished with the first block. hope to finish it and print next saturday
Here’s a quick walkthrough of the studio for those who can’t make it to final friday tonight at the pendleton art center. We’re open to the public today from 6-10 pm. There are about 200 artists on the campus. Its a free event, with $5 valet parking for those who want to get out at the door
yeah, making a lot of tiny little paintings looks fun, until you realize you have to make a lot of tiny little frames, lol!
Today i have been painting some of my neighborhood’s covered bridges, and sharing the process in my ‘story’.
There is no cell service at the walcott covered bridge (not too many places like that anymore) so here’s a snapshot of the work in progress.
My friend and artist, Kay Schafer asked if I could show her a few of my favorite painting spots in Maysville. We decided to make a painting day out of it!
Thanks Kay far visiting my little river town. Showing a guest around always gives me a fresh perspective of my hometown.
ISome views are too big for just one 6×4 1/2″ panel. The overlook at pine mountain state park
after spending time up on the mountaintop. I balanced it out with some time by the creek
nothing more relaxing than listening to moving water… Nothing more anxiety inducing than trying to paint a scene when light is bouncing aroind everywhere. Yin and yang. Pine mountain state park
Spending the day painying the countryside. I loved the way the light illuminates the grass on the hill.

We are enjoying the chocolate festival in old washington…lots going on…including printing at the log cabin print shop. Best to experience in person, but a quick walkthrough video for those who cant.
