New Plein Air: North Woods Waterfall

North Woods Waterfall, 2014, oil on linen, 12 x 9 inches
Spring is here and New Yorkers are as happy as can be. I don't think we can take more of the cold and snow we've been subjected to this winter. Although it is a little early for it, people were out in shorts and tshirts enjoying the sixty something degree weather. The sun was out for a good part of the day and I loved every minute of it. Plein air season is here ladies and gents, and nothing can give me more joy than to be out painting outside (sorry babe :/). This is what I accomplished today at Central Park. I'm very happy with it, and I can't wait to go out there again! More to come.

Watercolors from Mexico

 Clouds Over Riviera Maya 1, 2014, watercolor on paper, 6 3/4 x 10 inches
These are a few watercolors I accomplished very recently while I was on vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico. How I wish I was still back there in the hot sun painting the afternoons away. This has been a brutal winter here in the North East, and it was an incredible treat to be able to get away at least for a week. Spring is coming soon, I keep telling myself, I miss painting outdoor. Soon as it gets warm I'll be out side painting as much as I can.
