Lotus Pond

Miller School of Albemarle, Virginia, had an En Plein Air event last weekend. I was attracted to the jumble of fading lotus plants and cattails in the pond below the main school building there, in part because of their complexity; I felt like immersing myself in the fray. This is one painting of two I completed that will be showing at the school from Oct. 24 through Dec. 16. (Opening reception is this Monday, Oct. 24, 6-7:30 p.m.) Looking forward to seeing the pieces by Meg, Barbara, Nancy, and Eileen on display as well! Oil on stretched canvas, 14" x 11" — SOLD

Plank Road

Meg had a commission out in Batesville, and invited Barbara, Eileen and me to join her on the property. A pleasant Monday afternoon, sitting in a sunny field painting, children running around asking good questions. ("How do you do that?") Gouache on watercolor paper, 9" x 12".
SOLD - placed in the collection of Molly Shadel, Virginia

Time to get a few more painting photos up here ... this has been a very busy time.
