It's been getting humid, there's a haze hanging in the air.
Feels like it should rain soon!
This is a studio view looking at downtown from nordeast.
I asked myself , how would Winslow Homer paint this?
(He probably wouldn't) but if he did, he might see it from
the roof tops.
oil on gesso'd board 5"x5.5" (I putzed on this 2hrs.)

Coming home today,there was this butterfly by the door!
Getting out my camera,it closed its wings, then opend up
and flew way. I've never seen this type before. Wow!
(There are fire flies here too!) I thought you may enjoy this.

Back to the 50's car show

Rats & Rods & Trucks.. Oh My!
(This ain't Kansas) it's the State Fair Grounds!
Every year folks come out for show & tell.
I got an early start, over 10,000 lakes, I mean
over 10,000 vehicles to see!
Here are some pic's...

Looking Forward

What to paint? Here's looking at you kid.
This is my second attempt at a self portrait. I feel I should post
something new to look at. (I looked in the mirror for this) ha...
I'm looking forward to better days ahead.

party rough #1

Playing around with ideas, this is one by the campfire.
Not going for likeness at this stage, but rather mood
and temperature.
Also the bar & grill is another spot at the party I want
to put something together on .
I may do several rough studies, this is going to be a
"Memorial Days Night"
