Time Out On the River (private collection) - Acrylic on Canvas
The salmon are starting to run in the Kenai River, the sun is up till about 11:30PM, aahh the best time of the year to live in Alaska. The summers make the winters bearable. And better yet I have a week off from work to enjoy it. The weather is suppose to be sunny and warm. Right now, it is windy and blustery. Going to go with a artist friend tomorrow and take his boat out for a test run, we plan to paint the sunset (so will be a late night) from his boat. Then wednesday - saturday have a artworkshop to attend, put on by the Alaska Artists Guild featuring Arizona Artist Ron Rencher. Turns out Ron is a college buddy of one of our Artists in the Guild. Small world. I hope everyone has a great week and takes time to stop and let the sun shine on them for a few minutes each day.

Bonding Together - 6x8 Oil on RayMar Panel
Has been 2 weeks since I have had the time to paint. Not painting is like being a fish out of water. I do okay for a week, but after that I start to get antsy as my wife says. Whatever is inside gets all pent up and when I paint it is released and I feel much happier and lighter inside. Not sure if other artists feel this way or not. Going to go outside to the studio and start another painting today also. Will start a 40x30 I have been putting off for a while. get that going; then will start a figure painting this week also.
