White VW Bug

Another small plein air painting I did the other day,  There is a VW repair shop around the corner from my studio so the Bugs parked on the street are great subjects to paint --until the mechanics need to take them into the garage for repair and my subject disappears!

Autumn Plein Air

This is a plein air painting  I did a few weeks ago at the Watt Avenue River Access.  It was a beautiful glorious day and I am totally in my element when I get to paint outside in the beautiful nature.  (I think that passion comes from growing up in the beautiful northwest corner of Montana!)

Still Life Study from Elio Camacho's class on Tuesdays

This is a quick still life study I was able to do last Tuesday during Elio's class.  He comes up from the Bay Area every Tuesday to teach this class and it is such a great opportunity to study with such an accomplished artist.  I am learning so much from him.   We will be scheduling a plein air workshop with him most likely this spring--that will be a great learning opportunity!
