A little Sunday morning painting,"Across the Way" 9x12 oil on linen panel.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

 Step 4

There are only four steps to this little demo, because it was painted rather quickly, and I barely remembered to take any shots of the process!  Anyway, I managed to get four steps.  I am doing some small things for small works holiday shows.  This is one I might use.  The process might be of interest to someone.  Thanks for listening to my ramblings!

2013 Plein Air Painters of the Southeast, PAPSE, returns to Charleston!

I just returned yesterday from a fun week in Charleston with the PAPSE painters.  It was great seeing everyone again and painting with friends.  The week long get together culminated in a Friday night opening at three galleries on Broad St. in Charleston SC.....the Coco Vivo Fine Art, 25 Broad St., where my paintings are exhibited until the 16th of Nov., Edward Dare Gallery, 31 Broad St., and Galerie on Broad, 29 Broad St.  If anyone is around the Charleston area, this definitely something worth seeing.....some great on location paintings from some very accomplished artists.  I very proud to be associated with these talented group of really nice people.
This is Dee Beard Dean, Katie Dobson Cundiff and myself painting a guy we talked into posing for us at Cherry point.  Fun morning! 

This is the finished framed painting still wet, and one of the three paintings I chose to exhibit opening night at Coco Vivo.
My second painting at Cherry Point that day!  
This is a little 9x12 painted on Queen St. in Charleston. 
Framed wet and ready for Coco Vivo Fine Art!

This was the most windy day of the week for me, trying to paint a wave painting.  This one was not one of the three exhibited opening night, but is available at Coco Vivo!

This was another fun day at Shem Creek.  I had never painted there before, and it offered nice boat subjects to paint for everyone!
This was one of my three that I chose to exhibit opening night.  It was great week, and I look forward to future events with this fun group of painters!  Until next time, thanks for listening to my Cajun Ramblings!
