Fall is here HOORAY

Everyone that sees this painting asks what kine of flowers these are. They are actually the seed pods from a Japenese Maple in my backyard, it has such a glorious red and green combination.

work in progress

This is a painting I started recently when all of the local apples arrived at the farmers market. I'm hoping to get this completely finished this week so I can enter it in a competition.
wish me luck.

I'm hoping this post will look better once published, but no guarantees.
As always the retreat was magical. Here are some photos of high lights.

Lake Wenatchee

I'm leaving for our yearly POBL retreat this morning. The past few days I've been daydreaming about plein aire painting, there will be plenty of opportunities at the cabin. Hopefully I'll have some worthy images to post when I return.
