Irene Activity—Oriole painting

Hunkered down in the house to ride out Irene. Here's what I painted today. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Sunny Morning Dog

After a tough weekend of trying to get inspired, I settled on this subject for the latest painting. I took some pictures of dogs playing in the surf at Dewey Beach on vacation. I thought this made a pretty good image. I included a couple of step photos to see it develop.

Another Beach Painting—Although Not of the Beach

I have been holding on to this idea for a while and wanted to get it done for the BFA. I had some source photos, so I took them down with my portable easle to the beach last week and put paint on canvass. Som of my observers were a bit confused wondering where I was seeing a river scene with a heron while looking out to the Atlantic. Made for interesting conversation.

Beach Painting--last week

I painted three paintings at the beach last week. One I gave to Barbara—The Don of Dewey. This is one for BFA (almost here!) of the dunes. Got to get busy!
