Fall Colors

This painting was done from a photo that I took while painting plein air at Mott's Reservoir.

Check out the serious painter in the right lower corner. 

Although I didn't paint this while at Mott's, just being there inspired by the color made me want to paint this in my studio.  I painted a small study of the boathouse while there. 

12 x 16 oil with lots of palette knife work. 

Large paintings are listed  on my website and are available at Heather Boutique in Fredericksburg, VA.  This one isn't framed yet.  I am looking for a new source for plein air frames.

Student Show
I am so mama bear proud of my students.  Here are some of their paintings in the show that starts officially tomorrow.  We did the "hanging" yesterday thank you to my husband, John, and Elizabeth and Lynette at Water Street Studio.  Elizabeth took a photo of us after the "hanging" which is on their website, happy and tired.  I can't figure out how to put it here since it is on Instagram, but here is a link to their website.  link to Water Street Studio - our photo is on the right
