Art in the Garden, Fieldbrook Winery

Saturday I painted along with many other artists in the gardens of Fieldbrook Winery. It was a beautiful warm day. I was there all the previous week...with much of the same great weather. The pink roses along the wall caught my eye when the sun hit them just right. I like this little 5" x 7" painting. I'll put up a few more after I add some finishing touches.

pretty pic

Wow...I was at Fieldbrook Winery today (up here in HC) snapping some pics for foto reference. This weekend I'm in a paint-out there...27 artists paint the winery plein air. Anyway...i couldn't believe how pretty this pic of the lily pads was...the sky turning everything blu-ish. Upclose you don't see the blue...only when you stand back and look.

"Wanna Paint?"

This is a painting of my friend Rachel. The photo reference is a shot of her face...gazing thoughtfully...thinking "what to paint".....with that cig drooping out of her lip....i saw it as a tough gal saying " [hey] wanna paint?"
