More from San Miguel.


"Arches", 10 x 8", Pastel on Wallis.

This one was a painting I did during my first painting day in a city.
We started nice and easy, but whole event turned into total chaos,
when cars and vans starting pulling to "El Jardin" - central square
of San Miguel where our group was working this day.
Turned out - crowd was gathering for movie shoot.
One of popular Mexican soap operas, what they call "Telenovela".
So we got to participate in sort of "Painting with the stars" event
without any fair warning.
Many bystanders were kicked out of the square by TV crew,
but they let us paint and worked things around...
What was indeed very nice, as bunch of foreigners with easels
definitely weren't part of the script.
I was working on my first painting in the most far corner in weak hope
it is safe place to be and I was dead wrong.
Long story short - I got to paint  right on camera
and my dear spouse had too much fun with that fact....
Regardless... I finished the painting.



Next one I did at the end of day 2, it was basically quick street-sketch
on 9 x 6" piece of Pastel Premier paper.
I finished it later in studio without addition many details...
It was all about forms and shapes, not a small things.

"Shapes of City", 9 x 6", Pastel.

Hard to believe, it was just week ago now,
when we are back in PA and buried in a snow...
It was too much fun!

It was a gray day, but I decided to paint outdoors anyway. We only have one car in FLA and today was my day to take it. I drove all around Savannas Park, but every site was so grim. I was about to leave when I spied this pretty little scene-palms framing a reflection of palms, beautifully contrasted against a luminous sky.My day was saved.

Here are my entries for Days 24 and 25,  for Leslie Saeta's
'Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge 2015'.  For this challenge,
I have decided to do thirty small studies from my trip last September
to Martha's Vineyard.  My hope is that some of these studies
will be worked into larger paintings.

It's been an interesting day to try and paint.  I sat down,
finished up my first painting ('Sunlit Path'), and then
started 'Coastal Inlet'.  I had only painted for an hour or
so when there was a loud bang outside...and unfortunately
I know what that means  - we have lived on this corner
for 25 years, and have experienced quite a few accidents - most
of which involve someone hitting our stone wall.

Our wall was safe, but both vehicles had passengers that were
 taken to the hospital by ambulance.  I would much rather have
 our wall injured than the people in their cars.

'The Green Boat'

This is my twenty third entry for Leslie Saeta's 'Thirty Paintings in

decided to do thirty small studies from my trip last September
to Martha's Vineyard.  My hope is that some of these studies
will be worked into larger paintings.

As we got off the ferry to Chappaquiddick and walked
toward the infamous bridge (called Kennedy's car wash
by the natives), I saw this wonderful green boat in
a marshy area - and it was screaming 'Paint Me!'
I am glad that I finally did...

Life Is A Flower. Digital Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

Life Is A Flower - Digital Collage
Has anyone ever called you a Dreamer and do you wear the badge with honour? Are you proud that others recognise the dreamer quality in you?

I, too, have been "accused". I suppose I will always have the soul of a romantic and a dreamer. And that pleases me.

As a member of the Lunagirl Moonbeam Design Team. Our latest challenge is to explore the world of "Honeybees". And what a wonderful challenge for this time of year! As I sit looking out of my window at the snow that fell overnight,  I long for warm Spring sunshine and earthy scented breezes.

It's been quite a while since I worked digitally, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to take a dip back into the digital pool. And I was so glad I did. I forgot how much I do enjoy it!

I started gathering my collage ephemera with a quote from Victor Hugo. I believe Life is like a flower...each petal, each day, opening to something new...sometimes joyous...sometimes not...but nonetheless an adventure. And isn't love...in all her aspects...the sweetness, the honey, in your life?

Hugo's quote made me think of the beautiful Waterhouse painting "The Soul of the Rose" and the poem of inspiration by Alfred Lord Tennyson.  In my collection is the Lunagirl  Pre-Raphaelite Art CD. And there she was...encouraged by my Muse...I was ready to begin.

I incorporated into the design the Waterhouse woman, Lunagirl flowers from the Busy Bees Collage sheet and art, guaranteeing the honey to be pure, from the Honeybee Tag Set. I finished the piece with other scraps I have in a collection of my own digital ephemera, including a romantic morning Moon.

So, fellow Dreamers...what brings sweetness to your life? And who...or what...is the honeybee?

to Martha's Vineyard.  My hope is that some of these studies

This is another view of the marshy coastline of Chappaquiddick,
and I was able to get some great photo reference shots
of the area when we took a jeep excursion to (and from) the lighthouse
on Cape Poge.  I loved the way the foliage was changing color
because of the Fall weather...one of my favorite places.

This was a perfect painting to work on as we get ready to be
hit by another snow storm!

made for plein air painting, that's for sure!

San Miguel de Allende, Jardín Botánico.

 Last several days I was lucky to be a part of unique event sponsored
by Pastel Society of America.
Our group flew to Mexico to get together in San Miguel de Allende
and paint together with my favorite pastel-guru - Richard McKinley.

In 2008 UNESCO recognized San Miguel de Allende and
the neighboring Sanctuary of Jesus de Atotonilco
as World Heritage of Humanity sites and we had
an opportunity to work on both locations.

Some of those paintings I'll post later, meanwhile I want to share one I did
in local botanical garden what is known there as
"Jardín Botánico"
Enjoy!

"Quiet Waters", 8 x 10"
Pastel. Plein Air.

When I think of the town of Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard,
I think of the flowers that brightened yards, parks
and many window boxes.  It is such a charming town,
and the beautiful flowers made it even more so!
