I’ve been trying to paint without sharing, so I can have a collection to show you all at once. But I can’t resist showing off, and it’s a rainy Mother’s day here in Kentucky, so I thought I’d share some good weather plein air sunshine with you!
The wildflowers in front of this barn would make an interesting painting.
Greetings from the river village of Ripley, Ohio! There’s no rain, but today’s forecast is cloudy. Still lots of pretty scenes to choose from. Stay tuned!
Today I’m in Augusta, ky. A little river village very close to my heart. It’s been difficult picking a spot to paint, but I decided on this scene on 4th street.
I’m interested in the porch with rocking chair, flowering trees, hill in the distance while looking into the morning light.
There’s a lot here, and I’ll have to use my artist eye to edit the scene and put it all together into a painting. This will serve as a great example of how painting from life lets you do things a photo can’t
It’s nice to see friends again…especially other artists. what a treat to get a nice photo of ME while at work on a painting?!!!!

Thanks for watching!
you all will not believe what popped up in my garden today?!?! irises!!!! They are early for Northern Kentucky!They are in a funny spot, and it’s impossible to get a good photo with the distracting background. This session will be an example of how a painting filters and interprets a scene through the artist’s eye in a way the camera cannot.
I’m painting Plein air LIVE. Keep watching this post for updates as the work is in progress!
Today, i had the intention to go to Lewis county to paint the Cabin Creek Covered bridge.
I’ve painted the bridge before, it’s a picture perfect scene, but I was in the mood for something a little bit different.
the original is available for sale. I will update with a better studio photo once it is dry (in about a week)
the original painting has sold, but you can order archival reproductions on cotton rag by clicking above.
