Now that the snow is covering the ground I look at this picture and think – this is practically summer – even though it was October! Here I am painting in my last plein air competition of the summer/fall season in Essex, MA. This is a note and reminder to myself for all plein air events I’m in next year. Relax and have fun! The secret to good paintings is to not to get too invested in the outcome, just immerse yourself in the scene and enjoy the process ! Photo : Marcus Gale
PRINTS AVAILABLE … I will soon be releasing some of my paintings as prints ….
I am often contacted by fans and collectors who can not afford the original work so I am releasing a new collection to be reproduced into prints at an affordable price point.
I will post newly released paintings weekly in my blog and here in my newsletter.
If you wish to purchase prints of my paintings they are being posted on my page at Fine Art America. You can follow my page for notification of the release of new paintings into print.
A select collection is available now and more will be posted soon on a regular basis. I will be releasing small studies and reproductions of some of my larger paintings.
Fresh Snow, 5×7 Acrylic Photo: Mary Byrom
After teaching class yesterday I promised myself I would get out to paint the new fresh snow. I packed up my car to head down to the river across from my house. Then my car wouldn’t start! Big surprise! It was getting dark and I didn’t have time to futz around so I decided no problem, just paint what I see around my house. The snow and trees in the field out back were perfect. I just moved them a bit to make the design look better !
After Sunset, 5×7 Acrylic Photo: Mary Byrom
This second painting I painted quickly after the sun fell into the clouds near the horizon. The view is across the fields toward the center of the village. I had a tiny slice of the view through my neighbors back yards. I painted fast as it got dark. I finished as it was getting dark. I was a happy camper!
