Artcroft Day 6

I regret that I do not get to writing my blog post until the end of the day when my mind is mush…but I will try and recount another wonderful day at Artcroft.

This morning, I helped Robert sure up the roof for the chicken coop. The weather is supposed to take a turn for the worse, so it was good we were able to tighten it up.

I made 8 small oil pastel paintings. I am trying to explore a theme with slight variations. Some are good, some are bad and some are great, I will make large oil paintings out of the best small paintings. Feel free to comment on what you think is good, bad and ugly…it will help me with the decision making!

Late in the afternoon while preparing dinner, Maureen commented on the beautiful light outside. I decided to take a walk with my camera and try to capture some of that light.

I am having a great time out here. I can’t express the good feeling that comes with a stay at Artcroft. Robert and Maureen are experts at creating a beautiful environment for creative thinking.

  1. Wow! It looks like you have been really busy and having a great experience at Artcroft. My favorite paintings are the white tree with purple background and the four chickens in a tree. Keep up the good work!

  2. I absolutely agree with Carrie with those two, and I also love the colors in the cow drinking at the stream painting.

  3. …and the one with the house and seven trees on hills!

  4. Your volume of work is amazing. Prolific even! Loving the tree theme.
