Checking in

This is not turning into a good painting week for me.
Yesterday I spent the morning photographing my
next large commission.  Then a track meet...
We WON!  Our boys are 4-1 and girls 5-0, I am a
proud coach.  Today we spent from 10-2 with friends
from Philly.  Then off to track practice.
Wednesday I have a dentist appointment and then a

big track meet... unless it rains.

So the only thing I have to show you is the painting
I was working on this past weekend.



I always start with a hand-drawing.

Below it the start of washes, photo taken outside
so it has sunlight across it, not a great photo.

6"x 4"  Original Watercolor ~ A Painting A Day...SOLD!
Only $125 (unframed) to the first person to email or call!

I used parts of this still life as a demo for my students
last month.  It has been sitting here unfinished.  Two
pears and an over the hill mango.

I cheated a tiny bit today by finishing a painting started
a month ago.  I was short on time because of an eye
check up.  I have had glaucoma since my early 20's and
get twice a year checks.  Only got home at noon and there
was no way I could start and finish before leaving for track.
So my three hours were spent on this one.

More from the little medieval hamlet of Lucignano d'Asso.

Over the weekend Linda went with a girlfriend to the
Lancaster Marionette, so she wanted to give a plug.
There were more adults than kids and she would like
to go back for the adult show.  Then Sunday we went
to see a harp concert which was fantastic.  I sold a
bike and bought a bike and plan to test it tonight.
Track is going well, we have a meet on Tuesday.

2016 Italy #6

4"x 6"  Original Watercolor ~ A Painting A Day...
 $275

I am working on pieces from the Crete Senesi area all
this week.    The Crete Senesi refers to an area of the

Italian region of Tuscany to the south of Siena.  Our guide
"Roberto" drove us around for a day making several stops.


This past weekend was spent with several friends.  We
get together once a year and this year we stayed close
to Lititz.  We had big plans... then it snowed.  Never
expected to have to go to Plan B in April!
Breakfast at TomatoPie. (excellent as always)
Then we went to the Clock Museum in Columbia PA
This is a must see one time.  I was very impressed.  None

of us are particularly interested in watches or clocks but
but it was very interesting so put it on your list to see.
Thank you to a friend Ray for helping make are visit
special.   Dinner plans changed from Penn National Race
Track to Aussie and the Fox.  (another excellent meal!)
Only one more free weekend and then my show season

is in full swing.  My house sitter might as well just move
in!
