Im doing a mini road trip along us route 62. I stopped in mt olivet to paint the intersection of town, and its no surprise, that people there were super friendly. I met the mayor, a young lady brought me a cold bottle of water, and another bought me a delicious sandwich from the corner store! … And i got a beautiful painting! Small town southern hospitality is alive and well in robertson. Always a pleasure to visit!
Next stop, cynthiana, ky!

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.
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.

I wanted to thank everyone who has supported my latest project-tiny plein air paintings.
I have already earned enough money to buy a new mini size paint box! It arrived today from utah, and im super excited for the rain to clear, and to get out and paint tomorrow!
i couldnt wait until tomorrow. The rain has stopped, and the light (and Phil’s pear trees) looks great at the corner.
im going to try to paint this scene before the sky falls ouy. Grey day, white house with white trees in the background – old washington, ky
