ArtistRow at the Public Market

What a wonderful day to be at the Market! The weather was fantastic, the art was great and the people there were friendly and full of questions - my kind of crowd! It was a lot of fun and I truly enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by my booth. I love to talk about my pastels and this was a terrific opportunity for me to ramble endlessly. Hope I didn't bore anyone too much. I will definitely be doing this again next year, and maybe later this year as the holiday season approaches. My thanks to everyone who made it such a memorable experience!

Forgotten Tugboat - The Seneca Maid in Drydock

I'd been to this marina on the Genesee earlier in the summer and immediately spotted this incredible old tugboat sitting up on jacks. It was extremely hot that day though, and since I knew I'd have to be standing in full sun to really capture it, decided to try it another time. Thankfully, we came back to this spot again yesterday and I was able to paint the scene just the way I'd envisioned it.

The Genesee Valley Vista

While at the Genesee Country Village the other day, I had the opportunity to paint a scene that I hadn't been able to paint well a year ago. I had some bad paper which wouldn't hold the pastel. I'd hoped I'd have another chance to come back and paint it someday and now I finally did it. The view looks toward the east over the Genesee Valley and is quite beautiful.

Sunlit Path in Fishers NY

I went to a little park in Fishers this morning. This backlit path was the first place I spotted, but whenever I'm out, I always think there must be something better to paint a little further down the road, so I keep looking. I could sure save myself a lot of time if I just went with the first reaction to a place I get, instead of always looking for something better.
