EXTREEM PLEIN AIR. Soooooo hot and humid.
I just spent three days in Annapolis in a Billyo workshop with Karen Scannell, Lynn Meta, Meg Walsh and David Diaz. What a great time but sooooooo hot.
Thick paint, visual techniques for seeing, easel time with Billyo, group critique, good food and company. It was a fantastic workshop. Thank your all for a wonderful , informative time.

 Wendy Culpt's Garden   Queen Anns Lace   Little White House   Field with Barns       It is May and I am still remembering April and all of the people I reconnected with during The Sweet Spot. There was so much happiness in the room at the opening. I felt like I was having a big group hug. Thank you everyone for your support. The show was well received. As George and I were packing up, Lee Newman appeared to tell me how much he enjoyed the show. He was teaching a class at the time. He told me he brought his students through the show and talked about the work. 

As I look down the guest list it is good to find names of people I have not seen in years as well s those whom I have not met before. The show was a success.
Six paintings and two drawings have new homes.  
Eavening Field  Dreaming In Blue  Luna Blus  Johnson's Estate Winery   

This is how the show looked.
The Delaplaine Visual Arts and Education in Frederick, Maryland,  has beautiful galleries. People were so nice. Thank you Diane Sibeson for your guidence. Thank you Lois and George Leigh, who hepled me hang the show and George,my dear husband for helping me bring the show home..

A change in studio presents problems. Nothing is perfect. My new space in the Sandy Spring Museum is great but I can not use solvents and oil paint in the space. Ok, I paint outside. Not a problem. I have been on larger drawings in Oil Pastel and Oil Bar,using photo sources and working large. Great fun.
