Back at it!! 18x24 Sumac Class Demonstration

The last couple months have been very interesting to say the least!  My kids, Paige and Nick and I moved.  Six months ago was the start of a long process of selling our house of 15 years and buying a new one (OLD one, 140 years old one!) where we now live out in the country (just 6 miles from the home we left) and I will have my studio along with 15 very paintable acres.  Exciting times, but challenging for sure!  And Painting, this is the longest stretch I have gone without painting since I was pregnant with my now 13 year old son.  It was about 6 weeks of no painting, ugh!  Classes started back up a few weeks ago in full swing, and thanks to one of my students who took these pictures of my block in demo I can share them with you.  This painting was a 2 hour demo done from a study and my photo using my Mac.  The demo was on blocking in large shapes of color to create harmony in your landscape.  All I can say is it's good to be 'Back At It!!'  :)
