September 28, 2012

Moving right along.....before I get into my limited landscape paintings I wanted to post this mural that used to be in a store in Friday Harbor, was my first truly big piece....challenging and fun to do.  Unfortunately the store has been closed, or sold....I'm not sure which, but I doubt the mural is there anymore....maybe I will make it up into a painting on canvas one day..... that brings me to the landscapes....this one I did after taking Tim Horn's class Painting from Photographs in the Plein Air Style.......I don't think I quite succeeded but it is part of the learning curve.

This one followed
Bon Tempe Afternoon
Oil on Canvas

This  piece was done at a workshop with Tim in Petaluma last year on a huge ranch that Tim has painted many times so successfully.  It was very windy the entire weekend...but still we all had fun and learned a lot.  
Starting Point

The Barn

And that brings me up to present time.......and paintings that I will post another day.....

  1. That mural does seem vaguely familiar. My you have come a long way with your painting. Always a light delicate touch, like a seamstress creating a beautiful line, but a kind of uncertainty. The barn looks familiar... makes me think of Mona.

    Was the store the Corner Store?
