"Vivi- by the Sea" and "Autumn Glow"

Self portrait painted in one of Earl Blust's sessions at the Mechanicsburg Art Center. Those were such inspired meetings!   Below is a quick loose sketch painted plein air from that same time...with Earl.

"Rose Petals"

I'm curious to see what a "straight-out-of-the-cellphone" shot looks like... None of the images I will post of my artwork will be altered by any photo editing process, like Photoshop or Lightroom as I want to keep them as comparable to the real work as possible. Yes my colors are bright and true!    My photographic works on the other hand are definitely a product of much fun with editing!  Digital delights!

My friends , administrator and  President of SVPAP, Claire Carnell and  Julie Riker,  have been helping me get ideas and get my blog up and running on the SVPAP website. Thank you to both these wonderful ladies!
Here's a pix of Julie painting in the Carlisle festival of Art last fall. That was a fun day! We were able to listen to music while we painted on the square!
