Morning in the Middle of the Afternoon

Cool Morning Mist
24” x 8”
Oil on Canvas

Early morning is my favorite time to be painting down by the water. So much so even though this was painted in the evening on the last day of the Paint Out, my imagination took me right back to the view I had seen the morning before.

Great Chattahoochee River Paint-Out

Morning Rush
16” x 8”
Oil on Canvas Panel

What a great experience. This was the first time I have participated in a Paint Out and being the first year of this particular one I was amazed at the turn out. There were 76 professional and amateur artists painting at numerous locations on the Chattahoochee River in Roswell, GA. The entire event was very well organized and completely about supporting art in the community. All of the artists were asked to share their top two paintings in a show and reception at Island Ford Nature Headquarters of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The Paint-Out was the inspiration of my dear friend, Roswell artist Joan Hilliard who wanted to share the beauty of Roswell and the Chattahoochee River with fellow artists from across the country. It was hosted by the Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
My thanks to all who made this event possible.

These are the two paintings I chose to include in the show.

It has been a while since I have posted due to illness but I just got back from a week long Plein Air workshop with Bill Davidson in Jackson Hole, WY.
I wanted to share a few of my studies from the trip.
