Old Twisted Willow

In the spring of 2011 I started working on birch board surfaces I prepared. To read more about the process go back to an older post : June 13th, 2012

This is one of the first paintings I did using this technique and I have to say I absolutely love this surface to paint on.

Plein Air season!

Plein air season is in full swing for me, not that there is a season. Kinda sounds like deer season, or salmon season. I guess in a way it is. I go out from mid May to about mid September with a group of local artists every Wednesday morning to paint. In a way this is our "plein air" season. Here in Oregon for the most part it is too rainy at other times of the year for most of us to venture outside the studio to paint. When I go out on Wednesday mornings I always have high expectations that today I will be triumphant and bring home a prize catch. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not.
