Oil on Linen Panel

On my very first day painting for the Westfield, NY
Plein Air Event, I went to Barcelona Harbor
and found this great little lighthouse.  The clouds
were in and out, but when they were out the light
that was striking the lighthouse was incredible.
Such a beautiful place, and I had such
an amazing time with the other artists who
were participating - I love my job!

Hemlock Valley Original Plein Air Painting by Mary Beth Brath - Daily Painter of Pennsylvania

Hemlock Valley Plein Air by Mary Beth Brath
10x8" Acrylic on Masonite

Last week was full of painting and family fun. Northwestern PA is such a joy. I rode my bike packed with plein air supplies down a dirt road and set up on one of my favorite bridges. I used to swim in this creek as a child.

RED COLEUS By Cecelia Lyden





oil/canvas
11x14
www.cecelialyden.com

Wednesday was another beautiful day for painting outdoors. This time we were at Liz Gallucci's home on the Conodoguinet. The Creek was sparkling in the morning sun, but it was the bright red coleus in Liz's rock garden that caught my eye. Set between two of the many huge trees in her yard and in front of the creek, the garden was my inspiration for the day.

Travel Easy. Artist Trading Card. Shelby Pizzarro

Travel Easy  --  ATC
Sometimes travelling can seem overwhelming. Preparing for a trip produces a laundry list of things to do...and often it seems never enough time to do them. But exciting it is. I love everything about the preparations, knowing events many not run to plan, but that's where the "adventure" begins.

Keeping this feeling in mind, I looked through my box of ephemera, letting my Muse guide me. And there they were...my collection of road maps. I love to look at maps. The road systems intrigue me. The names of the cities always sound so exotic. The cool blue of the rivers, lakes, and oceans make a peaceable rest stop from the lines and names surrounding them. Attached to the maps I found a piece of phone book paper. It was just what I wanted. And so my journey began...

The substrate for the Artist Trading Card is illustration board.  As many of my favourite excursions were circuitous in nature, I cut some of my favourite maps into strips and wove them together. And places are nothing without faces, so I added the translucent phone book pages.

Our travels, whether physical road trips or spiritual trips within, are a journey of transformation. Each experience brings knowledge and wisdom. To quote Robert Frost, "I look the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference." May you find the less travelled road to your authentic self.

Back Alley by Julie Riker

9x12 oil

Today I went to Easton, MD to participate in the Quick Draw - one of the largest plein air events in the country.  There must have been close to 200 artists and I can't believe no one else spotted this charming scene tucked between 2 houses in a back alley.
I was happy that the painting was sold to a couple from New Hampshire.

"The Lion and the Lamb" by Deborah Nell


"The Lion and the Lamb" 20" x 20" Acrylic on textured, stretched canvas. $275
Before painting the canvas, I applied modeling paste to give it texture. I also added a small chain and cotton cloth in parts of the painting. After it dried over night, I painted the image. The image emerged as I kept applying paint. The first image I saw was the lamb. This is available for sale on my etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/expressivepaintings
