town landing plein air study - 12x9

This is one of the studies I did while in Cape Cod last week.............when we started painting everything that is dark here was wreathed in mist and lighter in value. I had to change the painting completely but I still like the way this one came out. Back to NY again tomorrow for the millionth time!

house on a hill - 20x16 (not completed)

I cannot believe that this month is nearly over.........I am seeing rubbermaid storage containers every time I close my eyes but I am making true progress with packing for my move. I hope that I will be "home again" around the first of the year. My sisters and I have made progress on my Dad's house as well - it is going on the market October 1. Anyway, I just got back from a painting trip to the Cape with 3 other, was it nice to paint plein air again. I feel like I have been inside all summer. I am nearly done with this one so I decided to post. I am using thicker paint these days.

hot sand - 8" square

Using my iphone really is a pretty good camera but can be pretty unsteady. Now that I have done so much packing and have decided to rent a storage unit until I move, I don't feel like the task is quite so impossible. So, I feel that I can allow myself to paint everyday again as long as I achieve certain "moving goals" each day. Of course this might change depending on trips to NY and unexpected snafus in the process but I am feeling less stressed about the packing. I can't wait to find a place in South Carolina!!!!
