CREPE


CREPE
10x8
Transitions are hard. I am back at North Street Studio. I call the first paintings when you have been out of practice for a while "crepes". The first ones might be tough to cook to perfection..so you have got to be prepared for a few rough ones until you get the temperature just right. To add to the crepe situation the heat is not working in my Studio...Back to good old New England!

I am happy to have been a participant in the 30 day challenge and am REALLY happy to have it end! OY!It has been a great motivator and I am itching to take the same time to paint BIGGER and in a more relaxed fashion. I am going to do one or two more river scenes as possibilities for the RIVERFEST poster. Actually...I might re work this one to be  more interesting. Stay tuned.

POSTER


RIVERFEST 2014
I am conjuring up an image for the wonderful charity event poster that I work on in March.
I wonder if it is too similar to last years? I will clean it up or mess it up some before it would go to press.
