Back to School

"September Landscape"

5" x 7" acrylic on paper

I'm back! and it was back to school today at my house. My youngest started kindergarten and my oldest is a senior in high school : )

I thought this fall landscape would be fitting as around here the leaves are already starting to change color--transition time.

I had a great summer traveling with my family, having campfires and s'mores (isn't that what summer is all about!), and hanging out with my painter friend Val Berkely for the "Second Annual Lake Effect Art Studio Charrette." Well, it was sort of like a charrette as the goal was for me/us to get as much painting done as possible over three days. It was all art talk and artwork. We celebrated the last evening with a "Tuscan Night" dinner, a great bottle of red wine and a couple of Stephen Quiller videos. I did come home with some finished work and a plan of attack for the next few months. All in all, it was a success and a lot of fun!

Keep your brushes wet...

OMG you used "charette" in a sentence. Love that! More painting days await us...from Val at the Lake Effect Art Studio.
