The Best Things to Paint & Eat – Maple Sugar

Winter is a special time. There is great beauty, peace and quiet especially when it snows. It’s magical. I headed out with my friend Sue to paint the sugar shack at Maple Moon Farm.

Painting While its Snowing !

It snowed off and on the whole time we painted. What a great afternoon! I was happy I had my umbrella in the car. As soon as it started snowing I put it up. I had a sneaky feeling that it was going to snow off and on all afternoon. And it did ! Every few minutes a new snow squall would blow through.

Here is a peek at how I start my painting of a sugar house on a snowy late winter day.

Winter Skies, Clouds, haiku series

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I hope you are all well and thriving …and not getting too buried in the hustle bustle of the holiday season.  It is good to pause and appreciate the quiet time of the year. We have truly entered into winter. Its a peaceful day today with snow falling gently making everything fresh and white. The muted blue and violet colors of this overcast winter day are beautiful.

It feels like it was just a few weeks ago when summer insisted on lingering until Thanksgiving. I’m not complaining  I was happy with that extra long summer !  Its rare that we have empty beaches, parking lots  and warm weather.  I took advantage of it !

I was buried in work till the end of my season, delivering paintings to galleries and hanging a holiday show. The summer season which is my busiest time of year stretched with out a pause into December this year. So when all deliveries were made it was time to celebrate and shift gears. I took a week off, then eased back into work with a bit of attention to planning my schedule for 2018.

Christmas is rounding the corner and almost upon us with the New Year right behind it!  Here are some highlights 2018 !

Haiku Series ~ The Sea #8

The Sea #8
The Sea #8

This is the last painting in my series ‘ The Sea”.  I noticed that when I paint a series I reach a point when the images start to move in another direction. Its an interesting process that is heavily influenced by my plein air painting. I paint my haiku paintings on location as well as in the studio. I have a tendency to paint in oil en plein air and in acrylic in the studio.  I like the fast drying time of acrylic in the studio and the slow drying time of oils on location.  My ocean paintings in 2018 will be going in a new direction. Stay posted!

The Sea #8   Acrylic  8.5×12″  Available.
