Hello,  friends  I have been amiss in writing on my blog.  Why???  I have no real good excuse.  I'm painting now outside and that presents a problem for most of my pieces are really not very good.   I post one a week on facebook but that is just a commitment I made to myself to put some publicity out about our great paint out times.  We go to many spots over the two cities and it is great for the soul to be with other painters, talking and sharing.  Here is one painting that is new that was not done plein-air.  It was painted from a doodle that I did while waiting at a coop for the model to arrive.
