Finished June Paintings!


       Here are the paintings from June, not my usual output, but with all the other stuff, like roofs to fix and kids to prepare for college and shows to prepare for, it's not too bad.  The place has gotten pretty green, especially with the deluge of rain we've had, but I managed to bring in other colors by virtue of subject matter. What I choose to paint are the scenes I see driving around, on my way to and from doing other things, returning later to see if the light is right, other times I'm wandering the countryside looking often times much longer than I'd care to admit.  Thanks for looking!

By mighty rivers and gentle creeks, on city streets and country lanes, rail yards and forests!

Here are a series of photos taken of my set up on location, I take a picture like this most times that I'm out there, they represent the variety of scenes that I'm drawn to, and variety is the spice of life!

My usual posts have been too long diverted, and otherwise documenting them impractical, with so much at hand, all good I assure you, If you have any questions feel free to ask.  I will post the finished June paintings soon,  Thanks!
