August painting delights

Lots of plein air trips this month, lots of starts and no finishes, as usual.

Have been in two shows, Thatcher Island and Newburyport Show I (juried, mixed media). I am working on a large one for the Newburyport Show II (oil) due Sept. 15th. I'll be in Canada that week at a mentoring workshop with Michael Chesley Johnson, hope we have good weather.

Have built a really nice easel (4'x8') like Jeff Weaver's of Gloucester and can't wait to try it out tonight. Maybe I'll try the up-side-down method which I just saw demonstrated at North Shore by Frank Federico--semi-abstract.

I'll report in after my September workshop. I have one arranged in Florida in October with Carol Marine. Remember to check the box on this site to receive updates on my blog. Thanks, see you next time.
