Mabry Farm Revisited

Mabry Farm Revisited

I spend so much time here that I have to occasionally update my work. Last week Cobb County announced that the construction of the access road back to a portion of the property that the county now owns will start. This is big news for the association that has been trying to raise money, but […]

Full Bloom

Full Bloom

Posted by on Apr 29, 2013 in Journal | No Comments

Spring is in full bloom here in the South and I’ve tried to capture some of the color and excitement with several paintings of the flowering trees and azaleas so prevalent in this area. Last weekend was the first session of the Gwinnett Plein Air Challenge and we painted at Vines Gardens in Loganville. I […]

Easter Sunday in paint

After settling for third place  in my local plein air paint out I was a bit dismayed but I have a tough skin and things  were back to normal this weekend. I am so taken by the flowering trees this Spring and every chance I get I paint the latest to bloom. First was the Chinese […]

I’m seeing a lot of nice winter scenes posted from some of my fellow plein air painters but here in Georgia all we are getting is cloudy days and rain. Don’t misunderstand me I’m not a cold weather fan but I do like snow paintings, and wouldn’t mind visiting  just to paint  if you could […]

Sunday I drove over to the Sloan Street neighborhood in Roswell. This is one of my favorite places to paint houses_a subject I use to firm up my confidence. Over the last year I’ve painted here a half dozen times and I’m drawn to the well kept and restored 1800’s homes in the area. They […]
