September at Duck Pond Beach ( WIP)

I woke up this morning and decided I wanted a day to play. I have not done any plein air painting all summer  and really needed an outing. I phoned my friend and college who usually paints in oils or watercolor to see if she wanted to go with me.
  We went to this beautiful beach on the Fundy shore not far from where I live and although there was a strong breeze off the water we had a great day out.
  we picked up a pizza and came back to my place and worked on them some more.
 We also took time to stop into another artist's home and look at some of her works. What a great day out.
  Will post more when it is done. I also need to finish my Pastel birds.

Gingerbread House Framed

This painting is ready now to go to its new home. I have to say I have become attached to it myself. I love this house and the gardens and I am actually pleased with it. I am often critical when I finish a work but I do love this one myself.

Ginger Bread House finished

This is a painting I have done this past week. I have loved this house for a long time and have been fortunate enough to be asked to paint it. The property is so well kept and has alot of character as well as beautiful flowers accenting it.
  It is 8inches by 16 inches in size so it makes it hard to take an accurate photo of it.
