This morning I went over to King Orchards with a painting buddy to do my “obligatory spring orchard painting”. It’s kind of a joke among us plein air painters about painting orchards in bloom. They’re murderously difficult to get a “decent” painting out of, what with all the trees all lined up like rows of soldiers. Artists are always looking for “artistic flow” and it’s frustrating when everything is so, well, predictably orderly.Excuses, excuses! But every year my painter friends and I speak wistfully all winter long of beautiful, sunny, warm days out in the orchards.

Posting a previously painted piece for the tea bag challenge this week. This was done some time back on one of the prepared tea bags mounted on to watercolor paper and gesso’ed. I used a limited palette of I think only two colors and tried following the marks on the tea bag. This landscape, pathway and mountain came to be. This piece measures about 6 x 3.5 in size.
Haven’t shared any “studio” work this week as when I was able to have some time I am working on a personal piece for myself. Would love to share it but it is a family tree piece which I’m doing as a mixed media collage on canvas. Due to the nature of the photos included I don’t want to post without getting permission from the individuals!
Hope everyone is having a creative and fulfilling week doing what you love!

The barrier in the sea of the mountains is It is like heaven itself. Draw with dark water color paint in general in the imagination of the details. We use dark watercolor paint on the paper to steer it. It looks real, natural, lively, the world seems empty, like this gloomy one. You all touch your imagination with your own consideration. Thank you.

I finished this painting last week and love it’s simplicity, both in composition and colorway. Sometimes I feel the image so strongly that it comes alive through my brush…this one did. The clouds are disapating as the storm passes with just one remnant left…a bit of light virga far beyond the horizon. Deep blue and violet shadows edge the lake as the orange glow of the sun reflects off its surface. Can you tell I really like this painting????
Larger than a CEO, but still original and affordable…available here…..
