Sky Blue MG A by Julie Riker

10x8

I painted this today at Carlisle's Harvest of the Arts where several of us from Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters were displaying our work to promote an upcoming show.
Part of the festival was the Meeting of the Marques, a great lineup of vintage English cars.
What fun!
It was hard to decide which to paint!
I was draw to the beautiful blue color on this one and the reflections of the trees and sky on the trunk.
The owner has restored the car himself over 8 years and was so happy that I chose to paint it.

I liked this view of Great Rock Bight Beach so much,
that I decided to paint it again in the afternoon
when the tide was low, and more of the rocks
in the water were visible.  I can really
understand why Monet painted his series of paintings.
Painting the same scene
during different times of the day and in varying
light/weather conditions creates a unique picture, as
well as a unique painting experience.

Retired by Julie Riker

 8x10 oil

Another painting from my weekend at the Chincoteague Island Plein Air Event.  I love images of abandonment - of nature taking over what was once new. 
There is no shortage of scenes like this on Chincoteague Island.  I could have created 5 compositions from this one property but chose to crop in on mostly the rusty truck with a bit of the old cottage.
This painting sold quickly at the show and was very popular.  I could have sold it again 20 times!  Maybe next year I should just paint rusty trucks!

"Nocturne Painting" by Debra Tritt Kreiger

8"x10" Acrylic on canvas board

 This was an adventure for sure. I never painted in the dark and it proved very interesting and fun to do. The tree was up lit so it created a nice center of interest. This was in the yard where we stayed at Martha's Vineyard. Made even more fun my painting buddies and hubby were with me!

I just came back from a plein air painting jaunt to
Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.  I was really looking
forward to painting the marshy areas, and was very
happy to find this marsh in Menemsha at low tide.
Locals who stopped by to talk to me while I was
painting said that this was the lowest they had
ever seen the tide in this area. Lucky me :)

THE STONE STABLE AND OLD SYCAMORE AT FT. HUNTER By Cecelia Lyden


oil/canvas
11x14
www.cecelialyden.com

I arrived a little late on Sunday for the Gallery Walk at Fort Hunter. I walked around for a while, looking for something inspiring to paint. I finally settled for this building, a stable. It had an OK shadow, a semi cheery color, an interesting roofline and a nice little tree in the crux of the two sections of the building. Not that enthused with my choice of subject matter, I "putzed" around, setting up, when suddenly I noticed this huge sycamore[, behind the building, almost completely hidden by dense foliage. I was suddenly motivated and began to work out the composition. I have since learned that book, Penn's Woods" estimates its age as 300 years old, one of the oldest in PA. The old sycamore "saved the day" for me.

I just came back from a plein air painting jaunt to
Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.  The weather
was beautiful, the scenery was sublime...so many wonderful
things to paint.  This one I did on Friday.  The trail to
get there was long and steep, but what a treat it
was to see what was waiting for me at the end of
that trail!

Sue Marrazzo Paints At The PA Governor's Mansion

Yesterday, I had the honor of painting at the Governor's Mansion for Harrisburg's Gallery Walk. I was in the rose garden for the afternoon. I was inspired by my surroundings. It was so nice to share my art with so many guests. What a great turnout! I met the governor and his wife...
Mr. and Mrs. Corbett. It was a wonderful art experience! 

 Gov. Tom Corbett and Sue Marrazzo

Summer's End by Julie Riker

Where did the last month go?  It's been so long since I posted here and now the summer is over.

 
8x24 oil
This past weekend I participated in the Chincoteague Plein Air event for the fourth consecutive year.
"Summer's End: was one of 7 paintings that I did during the 3 day event which ended in a Saturday evening sale.  I brought this unusual size canvas with the intent of painting a beach scene but decided to use it for the sunset on the Wildlife Refuge.  I had to work quickly to capture the changing colors in the sky.  It did not take long before it was too dark and I could no longer see my work.  As soon as the sun went down the mosquitoes came out and chased me away.  I finished the painting that evening in my hotel room from memory.
