I belong to a plein air painting group, called Band of Brushes. We meet once a week at different locations, mostly on the North Shore of Massachusetts. This structure is on the site of a Snuff Mill in Byfield. I loved the light playing across the building and the colorful frame of fall foliage. I plan to tweak a few things on this before I call it finished. I need to straighten the edge of the building and reintroduce some bright grass along the slope that I remember began in front of the building and then traveled down the slope. It was a windy day, which blew clouds in front of the sun off and on. I think in a quick reaction to the changing scene I painted over it—I was guilty of Chasing the Light! Oops!

If you haven't yet seen Julian Merrow-Smith's Postcard from Provence, I hope you'll visit his site by clicking on the name link. His still life paintings are powerful and strong…beautiful and inspiring to me. I sure don't mind learning from his work! SOLD

I thought I'd offer you some peaches and post a freshly picked apple next. This oil painting, "Tic Tac Toe–Peaches" is 6 x 8". If you are interested in purchasing a painting, please contact me. Thanks for taking a look and please leave a comment if you'd like; I love reading them!
