Post for Daily Paintworks

On this rainy day I finished 15 paintings, started a new large vista from the ranch and posting to daily Paintworks!

rainy day set up

I usually do plein air painting ( painted out doors on location) but on a rainy day its great to take over the dining room and paint by the fire with Coco our Doxie. She tells me when to put another log on! I signed all finished these paintings and started a new large one of our ranch view.
FYI. A bought bed pads from drugstore, and put under my work area. You can make a mess and even wipe your brushes on them!! No worries about the linen table cloth under!

So I am finishing ALL of by works and even signing them all. I have trouble doing a good signature, so usually put LAS my initials. I did sign 15 paintings today and my full name signature did get better!

The Rose Arbor

Ranch Study of the rose arbor, trying a Colin Campbell Cooper approach, ha!

Still Standing

This old Euc. tree is still hanging on. Standing in the dunes of Carpinteria State Beach. I remember when it had a full canopy and big limb near the ground we use to sit on.
Painted on a very foggy day with Thomas van Stein.
