Tis the Season

Tis The Season To Change

It has been a long and record winter in Anchorage Alaska this year.  We set a new Snowfall record.  Lots and lots and lots etc of snow this year.  Me and my snowblower became quite the team this year.  But "Tis The Season" for breakup and melting.  Going to be a messy wet, muddy meltdown this year.  And my wife and I can't wait for the snow to go.  We may end up having it hang around for a major part of the summer who knows.  The snow piles off our deck were 7 feet high and 5 feet thick.

After painting indoors for the last 6 months, myself and my plein air artist buddies have been itching to get outdoors and paint.  So Friday morning we all went to Chester Creek and painted in the sun.  AAHH it felt so good to be back outdoors painting.  Talk about everyone being in a good mood.  None of us much cared for whether we were painting good paintings, we just wanted to be outside painting and we loved it.  Made me realize just how much I truly love Plein Air Painting, its the experience and the beauty of nature, getting to see it and realize all the colors and interplay of life that you can't get from a photo.  Thank you Lord for a great day and the chance to see your creations outdoors once again,

Sneak Peak


A sneak peak at a few of the 24 Paintings in my April First Friday Art Show this Friday at Stephan Fine Art Gallery.

All paintings were created using a very limited palette of colors.  Come see what I was able to create with just a limited palette, you will be surprised at the range I was able to do with the colors.
