Adirondack's of Door County

I painted this during the 'dockside' quick paint' competition during the week long Plein Air Door County Festival 2009..... sponsored by the Peninsula School of Art, this past summer. It actually won a people's choice award.

The quick paint event was held early Saturday morning..... the final event. We had to get our canvas stamped, and had two hours to complete the painting. The bull horn started and ended the event. This is the 2nd year I attended this event.... and had a wonderful time. In 2008, I actually sold one painting right off of my easel!

I am taking this painting, plus Early November, Taylor's Trail and the yet untitled Barn Makeover to the gallery this afternoon for their opening scheduled for this Friday, the 19th of February from 5:00 - 9:00 pm. Drop by if you are in the area.

Early November

This was from a demo that I did in December during our last gallery opening. Patrons were in a festive spirit, listening to live music, sampling great food, and looking at beautiful paintings. Many were surprised that I only used red, blue, and yellow plus white to complete a painting. It was fun answering questions about how I paint.

The painting was inspired from a walk with my daughter through a beautiful nature trail in Lenexa KS.
