Thanks Jenn and Bonnie.  Now the roads and bridge are driving me crazy.  Love a challenge.

Had a great time tonight at the Pocono Arts Council Artist reception and awards.

Karen, so good to see you. This is such a nice photo and I see your challenge painting. The frame shows it off beautifully. It looks like you were having a good time, must have been wonderful. I'm sure you will figure out the roads and bridge, can't wait.

Just informing people of what I am up to, artisitically.  I am currently going to spend a beautiful summer weather afternoon at the University Botanical gardens to take many reference photographs, and to do a little botanical drawing as well.  Looking forward to some 3 hours of fun!

 

Will probably post a few pieces on here if I get some drawing done.

C&c are welcome! Love what you do. 

Love who you are. Love nature. Love art.

So, these are definitely a few of my favourite photos.  Overall, I took over 500 photos, but not all of them will be good enough for use in referencing.  These in particular inspired me.  I used a sony 18 megapixel camera to capture these, and I definitely plan to turn them into watercolour paintings or ink drawings later.

 

 

Having trouble posting the others.  Not sure why.

C&c are welcome! Love what you do. 

Love who you are. Love nature. Love art.

There are others, but the website is playing up a bit.  I'll just post some things when I am done painting some of them.

C&c are welcome! Love what you do.

Thunk, it sounds like you had a great day and got lots of photo's to do some art projects. I think my favorite is the foxglove, but these are all very nice. It is always great to have an outing to inspire you artistically. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Thank you Jenn and Bonnie.  I did have a great time.  I just got an email from the gallery.  Sunset will move to the county gallery for June and July and they offered to hang another painting in the gallery.  Now I have to choose another.

Thunk it sounds like a great time in the gardens. Great pics.

Coal was very important to the area i live in so I decided to try and paint the coal feilds still in existence.  This has been a real challenge.  Here is the work in progress.

I haven't kept up with the Chatter lately, so looking back.......

Joyce!  How nice to see you post again.  I wondered where you were.  Hope you can participate again when you have the time, or just pop in to chat!Big Smile

Thunk!  Thanks for sharing some of your nature photos.  You have a nice camera!

Karen!  I'm happy for all your achievements in the art show & galleries ~ FUN!  It's nice to see you with your framed painting.  Also, your Pittsburgh landscape is really shaping up.  Your new painting of the coal landscape is interesting.  Glad you tackled something regional.Yes
