Shutters in Provence

Oil on 8x10 Wrap canvas

I've been going through some more pictures from our trip to France and came up on this one taken by my sister.  She takes the best pictures.  Blue shutters with geraniums in pots are so typical of the region, no wonder I love those flowers still!

Oil on 10x8 Wrap canvas

 My sister lives in a little village called Barjols which is in Provence, France.  Very quaint town with little shops, the town butcher and a couple bakeries.  We spent some time there last summer and this is from one of the pictures.  I love spending time in the villages in that area, so typical of southern France.

I went large this week, I decided to put this easel to the test and I loved it!

I was so inspired by this huge tree casting the shadows onto the grass that I just had to paint it.  It was a beautiful park with the water and the grand trees everywhere, just a wonderful place to be.

It's overcast and cool today and I thought the colors looked so clear and bright especially with the very calm water.

I have been enjoying tomatoes a lot this summer. A house not too far from mine has them for sale in their yard and I've been stopping by every couple of days. I had forgotten how much home-grown tomatoes taste and look so much better than from the grocery store! Enjoy those fruits and vegetables while  you can!

I decided to take some step-by-step pictures as I was loving the complementary colors of red and green!

Down Stream

Oil on 8x10 Canvas

 While I was painting at a plein air workshop a few weeks ago in Milwaukee, I was asked to do a commission. I was very flattered and excited to see what I could do. I'm pleased with the result and I hope the owner will enjoy it for years to come!  The name of the boat is "Down Stream"....very fitting I think!

The Traveling Chicken in Wisconsin!

Oil on 8x8 canvas

I just finished posting my painting of the Traveling Chicken on the Traveling Chicken Blog. If you aren't familiar with the project, check it out, it's a porcelain chicken that is going from artist to artist, experiencing lots of adventures and getting painted at the same time! Very fun!

On a different note, the kids will be going back to school next week so I can start painting again!!!! What a fun-filled summer we had but it's time to get back into a routine. Happy start to the school-year everyone!
