A day away, tree up, and a small watercolor.

It is good to take a day away sometimes. Water is off to the outside spigots, kitchen dishes are done and put away, Christmas tree is up (Birk is leaving it alone), and I took a day to visit a space I’ve never been. Thanks John for the conversation and guided tour. A small painting came from the day as well. The Poor From the Just – a lot of negative space in the top part but, the fold makes up for it later.

With the Holiday Season upon us…

Welcome to the Holiday Season. With that, my high school’s Art Club is creating WORKS of ART and wrapping them around condensed soup. It is not exactly empty bowls, but the can of soup will fill the stomach and the free work of art can help fill the soul. This is my first of a few, and I will also be posting the works of the students as well.

I’ve updated the site and some pages. Thanks.

A number of new works have been completed, but the time to update my site has been missing… school, coaching, excuses… I’ve taken time to make some update and include a few new works. Abstractions and Plein Air have new works to see and some are below as well. Thanks.

#StateFair at #WaterfordSeniorLiving – and it RAINED!

Thank you to Cindy Lotzer and the staff at Waterford Senior Living on the first day of the WI State Fair. It POURED after about 1 1/2 hours… and the spirits were really high – even after the rain. Thank you to the wonderful residents that allowed me their time as I sketched them out. The rain interrupted the last portrait of “Trudy” but we met back up inside in the dry space. I need to draw FASTER and in a dryer space.

Today at Taliesin in Spring Green, WI

Thank you to all of the visitors and staff at Taliesin. Today I had an opportunity to create a couple of painting. This painting is just beneath Frank Lloyd Wright’s personal Studio at his home. I have one smaller one, a 40 minute sketch, that I’m going to finish up and post later. Thank you again to everyone who said hi and appreciated my work. I hope you all enjoyed your tour.

along the fox river today

We didn’t waste the weather today as we painted and made art along the river walk in Waterford.  I managed to create two works. Enjoy.

Wednesday at Wadewitz and we see a perch of the Campgrounds. 

Truly a gorgeous day at camp wadewitz today. We took in great views of all the pans and woods and the Backwoods and a bumblebee sting. This is my view of Rose at her perch overlooking the rest of the park.

Today at the 4th of July Parade in Waterford, WI

I’m not a big fan of parades, but I do love spending time outdoors. Here’s my latest painting. Happy 4th of July.

A picture perfect summer day in Waterford. Here is my newest watercolor painting.

Taliesin and my High School Plein Air Summer Studio – What a GREAT day.

If you are ever in the Spring Green part of Wisconsin, or are just looking for a destination for the day, Taliesin is the place to go. (Not to be confused with the House on the Rock – which is a lovely place I am sure.) My plein air artists were treated to a beautiful and insightful tour of the house and studio of Mr. Wright in Taliesin as well as the school of architecture (and lunch) at the Hillside School (information about the school itself can be found HERE). Thank you to Caroline and Becky for the hospitality and warm welcome (again). Thanks also to the hardworking artists who were able to paint, draw, and get to meet some of the folks at Taliesin. AS for me… I got two watercolors done (one is now in the collection of Effi Casey, an instructor at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture – Taliesin) a painting of her house on the Taliesin Grounds.
