Williamsburg Celebrates Plein air painting

This Saturday, Sept 21st, there will be a Quick Draw in Colonial Williamsburg on "Dog Street" (Merchants Square) that will take place from 10am until 5 pm. I am happy to say that I have been invited to this wonderful event. Along with the Quick Draw, over the past couple of weeks, the month of September, the invited artist have been painting the area. Those paintings will hang in the Bruton Parish Church Hall, 331 Duke of Glouchester St, for viewing.
So come on out tomorrow morning and watch an artist doing what he loves to do!
here are my paintings of the area that will be on view at Bruton Parish Church Hall

Season's Change

Hi Folks,
Fall is in the air! My favorite time of year, maybe I said that in the spring, or maybe even in the summer, but fall really is a painters dream. Colors are popping just around the corner. In a couple of wks, I'll be off to painters paradice. That means, I can set up office around any bend in the road, any old barn that I see, and any swamp or lake that I pass by.... Mother nature just begs to be seen and understood. I think painters are the most a-tuned to her power as far as,business people go. What I mean here is, we interpret her. We have to read what she gives us, interpret her givings, and try to make a painting out of it. She is perfect in all that she throws at us. She never rest, and she forces us to keep focused and goal oriented. The time is near, get your gear, rear your head, put the lead down, and get out there!!
