Corner Of Nason

"Corner Of Nason"
11x14 oil on linen 
What a beautiful fall day!  I just got in from painting one of my favorite places in Washington County, close to Marine of the St Croix.  I spent some time painting this great little road last year about this time.  I'm in love with the color of the bean fields right now, so warm!  Usually farmers switch from corn to beans from year to year.  Personally I'd rather paint the bean fields than corn so this was good!  Painting outside was a refreshing break from being in the studio this past week, I really needed to get out and paint directly from Nature.  I'm now renewed for teaching this week in the studio again.  
I do have to say, I'm not thrilled with the photos I've been taking of my paintings lately.  They look a bit harsh in the photos compared to the originals.  Eventually I'll take the time to figure out this problem but for now, you get the idea!

Today, I'm working in the studio on a 24x36 landscape and am getting to a point where I'm almost done but not quite. . . and not sure what the painting needs . . . a good time to take a break and post some paintings from the summer.  The pieces here are again from the door County festival.  I thought posting them now would be timely since I just finalized details with the Peninsula School of Art in Door County where I'll be teaching a 3 day plein air workshop in July of 2012.  If you're interested in taking the workshop you will be able to register through the school soon!  Okay, back to the easel!

Door County House and Sweet Peas

"Door County House and Sweet Peas"
11x14 oil on linen  ~sold~
Oh yes, finally unloading photos I took of my paintings from the summer!  Back in the studio, back to the computer.  I took somewhat of a break from most computer work this summer.  . . . but it's nice to be back!  This is one of many many paintings I have NOT posted from the summer but will!  This painting is one I did at the Door County Plein Air Festival in July, more to come!
