Duck Decoys

Duck Decoys
One day while out antiquing, I walked into a very dark, old barn filled with all sorts of interesting items. These duck decoys sat on a ledge by a window. The sun was bright and warm and beyond the barn was a barnyard with chickens. The contrast of the dark inside and the bright outside caught my eye and I snapped several photos for future paintings.

The Old Timer

The Old Timer
Another place I am drawn to is junkyards. I love to see old rusty machinery. The structure and textures fascinate me. I am sure this old car was a prized possession in its day. Now it a sat in the scrapyard with other broken, rusty relics.

Beech Spring Farm, Orrtanna

Beech Spring Farm Spring House
Watercolor 9" x12"
Today I painted with the Susquehanna Plein Air Painters at Beech Spring Farm in Orrtanna, PA.  What a beautiful spot! It was difficult to decide what to paint so I took about 100 photographs first and then parked my easel under a tree and painted this spring house with the fountain and garden in front of it.  
I really am enjoying painting outside and meeting some wonderful Art friends.  Thanks to my neighbor, Larry Lerew, for inviting me along, and to Jane who created these beautiful gardens. and to all the exceptional artists who were painting with me for giving me this opportunity.
