Ascending Sun, Returning Tide

The image on the top is a quick plein air study off the Wharf Lot in Annisquam, 9x12, that I must thank for inspiring many other paintings. I had used a panel previously toned with Cadmium Yellow Deep. Quite blinding out in the sun actually. But the ensuing chroma, hue and value choices intrigued me, so I began a series. The image on the bottom is the first progress shot of my first larger painting "Ascending Sun, Returning Tide" 30x36.
More later.

Garlic Bulb and Cloves 5x7 Oil on Canvas panel

I know, I know. It's a bad photo. But it's good enough for a post. And we artists know better than to spend too much time trying to get a good shot of a painting with wet, blackish value.
I've missed my blog community and am glad to be posting again. The Champlain's Lake show is at its final destination of the State House in Montpelier, VT. The Dorset Library show was a really nice venue and some of my favorite paintings have gone to new homes. Thank you to my collectors! Currently, I'm working on some larger pieces for a show running mid-November to New Years. More on that later. Thanks for stopping in after my meager postings of the last few months. Have a beautiful day.
