June Plein Air Competition

We had a beautiful weekend for plein air in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. On Saturday morning I settled in on a cliff overlooking the river and did this small (8x10) piece of the woods and the pretty lavender flowers. I think they are clover.

                                            "June Wildflowers"

Then I turned to my right and went for the bigger view of the river.
The day was hot and the paint was drying fast so I switched to a palette knife and worked fast. This painting is 9x12:

Bigger Boat

I hear that no matter what size boat you have, you have your eye on a larger one. So too with Artists... here I've moved up to an 8x10" piece from the earlier ACEO.  Once again the little ACEO has started a trend and inspired more paintings. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas and will set sail next week at the Hudson Society of Artist's Clothesline Show.
