New Art Show at the Gallery

The Fairfield Juried Art Show ended yesterday and today a new show was being hung.  Michael and I are the featured artists for this show which will go into about the middle of February.

We went down this afternoon to hang some of our pieces.  The rest of our pieces will be hung elsewhere inside the gallery.  

This coming Thursday, January 19th, from 11 to 6 p.m. Michael and I will be in the gallery working on some new paintings.

Napa Valley Marina

It's been too long since I've posted.  My bad.  We've been busy working with the Christmas rush upon us, everyone orders at the last minute and wants their order by Christmas.  Haha  We do our best.

Today we drove to Napa and had a paint out at the marina.  This was a really nice location, lots of views.  I got two paintings started, almost finished.  Not too much more to do on them.  Here's the photos from today's Meetup.  Oh, if you paint plein air, or want to, and you live in the San Francisco bay area, join our group.  We have such a fun time.  Afterward we usually grab a bite to eat, like we did today.

Here's the link;  Fairfield/Suisun Plein Air Painters.

A second painting I started.  Got it down pretty fast.  Now I will finish it up at home, a few more things to do on this one and the other one.  I didn't get a picture of my first painting.  It was of the view with the red building and water.

Local Winery Paint Out

Today we went to a local winery for our plein air paint out with our group.  Every which way you turned, it was a stunning setting for landscape painting.  You couldn't have ordered more perfect weather.

This is my second painting I started, still a ways to go before I'm finished.  I'm going to finish this up at home this week when I have some free time. 
This is the first painting I did today at the winery.  I wanted to keep the colors toned down for this little sketch.
