Still on Holiday!!

I am still on holiday in Australia and enjoying every minute of it! I'm in Sydney now but while I was in Perth I met up with artist blog friend, Wendy Barrett. We had a lovely lunch together and talked about art... of course!!! It was wonderful meeting her, she is very talented well as painting she has written and illustrated children's books! You can take a look at her blog here  It's so nice to be able to meet the people you blog with...we will keep in touch and meet up next time I'm over there.

Spring Grasses

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

I had time to do one more painting before I go on the colors of the grass in the Estuary at this time of year, especially  the mornings! I will be away for two weeks, so won't be posting any paintings..... I hope to meet  up with an artist blog friend  Wendy Barrett in Perth Australia... then will be relaxing with my family in the warm sun over there...can't wait!!!

Olive Grove Sunrise

6"x8" oil on gessoboard
My last painting for the Art and Olive Festival!  I am disappointed with this image, for some reason it changes when  I upload it to my blog, I have no idea why, it looks fine in my photo program! I have tried so many times but failed to get it to look any better!!!

I am almost finished with olive paintings for a while!! I think the setting up takes just about as long as the painting! These are for the Art in the Olives Festival at Telegraph Hill in November, I am going on holiday about a weeks  time so have to finish them before I go... whew!!!! Just blocked in a landscape of the olive grove then I'm done!! Should be a fun day with fantastic food!
