plein air painting

I went out yesterday with my friend Celeste. She is starting to get interested in plein air painting. We went to the D and R canal park, (beautiful place I might add). It did take us a while to find the place but after we got there we set out to work. This is my reproduction of the two trees that flanked the path through the park. Needs some tweaking but I thought I would post.

Jamies Birthday

Not much you can get a 28 year old who's birthday is tomorrow. So besides the wc paintings I brought her from England, I decided for her card to do a pencil rendering of a picture of what ever the name of this horse is on my computer. If it works and she recognizes it I may be able to tell you the name. Horses are as individual as humans in expression and temperament. Well we shall see tomorrow if I captured this horse, because she will call it by name when she sees the picture if it looks like the horse I drew. Sounds like a bit of a prolonged conversation here LOL.
