Backyard Blues

We have only three blueberry bushes in our backyard, but this season we have, so far, filled up at least three mixing bowls. 

I have painted these with the idea of showing them as they are, some ripe and some unripe, curling leaves and stems, shadows etc...

Shelby Overlook

This is the second of two plein air paintings I did recently. I sat in a local park (Shelby Farms) and finished this one just before a big thunderstorm came up and nearly blew me off of my chair...but as you can see by the painting, it was nice and sunny when I started.

Morning Ride

This was a plein air painting done on a summer morning. As I sat there painting, a lady walked by and asked if she could take my picture. She said she did not usually see people sitting and drawing. I was quite a curiosity.

Little Red River

I set up my easel along the bank of the Little Red River in Arkansas and did this quick pleinair painting. I put it away and kind of forgot about it until I pulled it out recently and decided to post it here.
