Full Moon 4 Miler TOMORROW in Waterford. Thanks to Brett Roberts for the awesome vases for trophies. Will you win one of the 6? I’d like to try! Here they are drying, ready for tomorrow nights race. Good running you all.
A truly wonderful evening in Lake Geneva today. I spent a good deal of time enjoying the smells of the restaurant Sopra and viewing the stores across the street. One of my last paintings was a view of Sopra from the very spot I painted tonight. A wonderful number of people stopped by and inquired about my work and at the end of the evening a beautiful family, the Kendall’s (Danielle, Jason, Kela and Micah) who were visiting from California purchased tonight’s painting. They watched the work develop from blank page to the finished work. Thank you for your interest in my work. I truly appreciate it.
A great afternoon of barbecue and conversation turned into a night of great music and painting. Thanks to all the folks and kids who stopped by to see me at work. Follow my site (there is a spot on this page to do that) like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.
Wonderful evening in downtown Lake Geneva. The individuals that I met tonight: Art Teacher, Store Owners, Theater Actor, kids of all ages… the ideas shared and comments made were really great and appreciated. Thanks all. I am anxious to get back to the streets on Thursday. And thanks to Mary, Ann, and Ginger for the purchases of THREE watercolors! Enjoy!
Thanks to Ken Cottingham – resident painter and teacher in Lake Geneva – for the hospitality, conversation, and snack as I worked feverishly in my latest painting. Working hard to capture the ideas of the store fronts in Lake Geneva, I had many a conversation with tourists and locals alike. Thank you to everyone that stopped by. That said – If I had a dollar for everyone who “liked” my work – I’d be making some money while out there. That’s ok though… it’s not the reason (well – it is one of the reasons but not THE reason) I am out there. Now… I HAVE to get that darn scooter working better. Ugh.
While I am not entirely sure what is going to take place tomorrow with my plein air schedule – perhaps a day in Lake Geneva again – street views – I do know that the studio at home is once again ready to be used. This is probably the best I’ve cleaned and TOSSED in years. Don’t wait for a tornado warning to straighten up your studio – it is amazing how good it feels to be in a nice space that’s clean and reorganized.
A wonderful but mixed day in Lake Geneva today. (A GREAT WEEK TOO!) The scooter got all fixed up and running, I even washed it up. The trip in was about a half and hour. Longer than if I drove my car BUT the parking is on SIDEWALKS! I parked within 2 minutes of where I painted. WONDERFUL! That said – I was a bit scared when I got done for the day – I could not get it started right away. YIKES! THANK you to all who stopped by. Families, individuals, couples… I had a lot great conversations and I HOPE that those of you who DID come by (and got a card) happen to visit my site. Two paintings today: Reflections of the Lake and At the Dock.
Another wonderful day in the shade in Lake Geneva. The conversations, once again, were worthwhile and, hopefully, gave a lot of people a sense of appreciation for the lake and what it is to create a watercolor painting. Thank you to everybody who stopped by, especially my buddy Zach Ziegler who biked in from Burlington via Williams Bay. Most importantly, thanks to my mom who join me on today’s trip.

Thank you to everybody who came out and stopped to visit with me in Lake Geneva today. From John from the Abbey Resort and Spa, Miguel and all the tourists he brought up from Joliet, to the camper high schoolers from East Troy, and all the other individuals and families who came by to see me, blowing away in the breeze, work on my newest painting “Riviera and East.” Thanks again enjoy my website
