I am posting today a painting that I just sold to a very nice woman who found me through my blog. She is from RI and told me she is sending it to a friend that once lived in the area. I had sold the original one months ago but she really wanted that one so I told her I could paint another for her. It is of the marshes down in the southern part of Rhode Island. The area is called Jerusalem. You drive down a road called Succotash to get to it. For those of you who have never heard of the word succotash it is a mixture of corn and lima beans. I love the names and the area and will never tire of painting it.

The original of the above painting was done also on a workshop up in Maine. I admired the study so much I worked a more finished painting from it. Many times the one that I do outside will not be exactly as I want it to be so I either paint more into it or do it over. I think many Plein Air artist work this way. There are at times the perfect gem shows up and it is finished that moment outside. That is a pleasant feeling.

I was at Sachuest Point looking towards Newport RI. last Tuesday. It was a hazy day. The background faded to lovely soft blues. This is a painting of one of the hiking paths. The trail is loaded with deer ticks so I sprayed not only me but the ground I was standing on and my painting bag.

Since we have had only five non rainy days in RI. during June. I have tried another still life. My plien air group still gets together due to a offer from a member. She has thoughtfully let us use her studio.
Hopefully the sun will return for us on our next week.

This painting was from a differentstrokesfromdifferentfolk.blogspot.com challenge. I loved painting the reflections in the water. They added a sparkle. I felt the need to changed the composition of the beach family to my liking. That is what I enjoy about Karin Juricks challenges. She wants us to paint what we see in a photo not exactly what is printed.

I just finished this painting. It's going into a show at the Spring Bull Gallery in Newport RI. at the end of January. The show is titled "Fakes and Forgeries". I chose to represent a painting done originally by William Merritt Chase. The title of the painting is "Just Onions". A bit of a joke because it looks like an orange has snuck in.

I painted this when I was in Tiverton RI. last summer in the Seapowet Marsh area. My husband took some small sculptures he was working on and sat loving near by during the entire session. He is my best supporter in my endeavor to paint these last eight years after moving to Rhode Island from Cincinnati, Ohio.
