Welcome Hill

Today is my first time painting out of the studio this year. My new knee is now working much better than the old one and I was really eager to be out plein air painting. What a lovely day to join two friends and zip over to New Hampshire, to a road called Welcome Hill. It is 3 miles from my home and I'll be going back before the daffodils, magnolias and bloodroot are all gone. Some one did a lot of planting quite some time ago by the looks of the trees and then made us all feel welcome to enjoy them. There are two benches to overlook the "wild" woodland gardens. SOLD

This is a poor ipad photo taken by me as I brought my painting in off the easel. sorry. Better one to follow. After painting this 16 x16 I was too lazy to use a real camera.

Butternut Enters 8th Year

This past weekend I visited Montrose , PA for my mother's memorial service. I stopped in at the Butternut Gallery where one of my recent pastel paintings, Vermont Garden Triptych looks good on the wall. As usual, I was in good company...some old friends,  excellent painters and intriguing work in many media. The graphite artist, Zoe Tilley Poster has some of her charming "beasts" on exhibit, too.

Unfortunately the photo I took at the gallery was of unacceptable quality so I'll post a pen and ink drawing I did on March 12.

and a pencil wash sketch I did last week during our weekly cafe sketch gathering.
