What's On The Easel

A most wonderful trip to Reid State Park Friday with fellow painter Caren Marie Michel. We walked the entire length of one mile beach. We swam in the very cold, very high surf. We had a fast lunch. We painted. It's difficult to imagine a more perfect day!

Reid is one of my favorite places to go. The varied environment makes it a never ending source of inspiration. I have never taken the time to go there in the winter but it is on my short list of things I need to do. Reid is on George Town Island. The island has many breathtaking areas such as Five Islands and of course the park. Reid is the northern sister area of Pompham. I prefer Reid. Less people, more varied scape's to choose from.

Next week I have four days at school - and then the grind with a full week after that. All of my exhibition paintings are on supports and ready to complete. My plan today is to get at least 2 glazing coats on the 4 seasons series and perhaps some layers on my newest Lily watercolor. I will be posting the progress.
