November to December 2013

Howey everyone, 
                          I hope y'all had a great Halloween / Harvest. Can you believe it is already time for Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Just thinking about it makes my head spin. 

Will in my last newsletter I told you that I was going to try my hand at El Plein Air painting (french word for The Open Air Painting). I am happy to say that I took the plunge and join PARR Plein Air Artists of Riverside, which is an Artist Group of the Riverside Art Museum.

In Sept we as PARR went to a lady house in Redlands and painted objects in her yard. I saw this bird house and tried to paint it but failed.  

So I went back home to my studio with a pic and the next day I painted this 5"X 7" this impressionist acrylic painting on a canvas panel which I used my palette knifes to paint.

 I call this one "Birdhouse" and she is ready for framing.
 To purchase go to and go to country page.

Giclees on canvas, Prints and cards of this image can be purchased at

The next El Plein Air painting I did was with Sharon Rachal who is an award winning artist, author and demonstrator. She was giving a workshop in the first part of Oct. We went to Oak Glen to the Oak Glen Old School House Museum and Park.

I have been really busy this month in Oct working on my new website
