Weymouth Furnace: Plein Air

These old stone arches were brilliantly back lit in the late afternoon. What a site...I'll be going back again. The picture is kind of reflecty, taken on location.

Blue Jay

I noticed all my birds were gone from the feeder this morning. When I went out I found this poor boy. He was a juvenile, one of two young ones that were raised here this summer. It was probably the hawk..or the cat, now we even have an immature bald eagle that's been circling around, I saw him today...Wow! Anyway I thought I'd do a study since the blue jay was in pristine condition. Number 11 in my series of dead bird paintings.

Ice on Patcong Creek

I did this one last week. Since Christmas I've been dealing with a lot of computer stuff. The old 98' tower finally died. Who could guess that I was storing over 2000 images on there! I then had another that someone gave me, but as it turned out that one was flawed as well...finally went out and bought a brand new HP. Now I'm spending lots of time learning my new's been time consuming, but I feel like I've shot ahead into the 21st century...and in the long run I will get more time to paint! 8x10
