Just back from Sonora. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any painting done. My allergies drove me crazy! I have an appointment today to get new medication. I understand that your body can become immune to certain drugs over time. Oh well.
I was in Sonora to pick up work from my show there, “Gold Country Plein Air Invitational“. Some of the paintings I hung I hadn’t had a chance to photograph yet–I finished them in the morning, framed them in the afternoon, from the reception that night. I guess that’s “real time” art. Of the paintings I hadn’t yet photographed, I thought you may enjoy this one. It is of the “Lick Skillet Cafe” in Columbia State Park. I had fun with this one: loose brush work (could have been looser), interesting color, and just suggesting the people at the table. It was fun, a nice day. My models came up afterward to say hello.

Sunday I’m off to Idaho to study with Ovanes Berberian. So, I won’t be updating this blog for a week while I’m away, so I can focus on studying. Wish me luck!
