8 X 10 Acrylic on canvas paper
    I started this one a month ago and had to put it down, life got a bit crazy. When I went back to it I could not remember what was in my head at the time. Now I feel an internal tension when I look at it. You know.. like its not finished. Hope that doesn't sound to nuts. But I have overworked it quite a bit looking to find the 'done' painting. Can't take it anymore so its now in a frame.

Elmhurst Plein Air Event

The Elmhurst Plein Air Event was such fun!  It was held by the Elmhurst House Of Friendship, Wheeling, WV.  The mansion itself is a huge and embodies the true Victorian style.  I tripped through it here and there and was just amazed by the interior.  The outside was gorgeous too!  Google'n it will take your right there if your curious. 

You could not ask for better weather on both days and with such a pampering that the visiting artists received, I'm sure we are all going to come back next year.

On the easel above was my first painting that I finished, in the beginning stages of course.  The second day found me at the font of the mansion painting.  As you  have noticed the finished paintings are not up.  I was so excited to just get the paintings done I forgot to take a few photos.  Both paintings sold and I never did get pictures.  Ah well..  I'll remember next time.
