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.

Brath & Hughes Fine Art Gallery

I am relatively new to plein air painting but I am having such a good time.  I have met some wonderful artists as part of this group and I have enjoyed the lovely locations we have gone to.  I am looking forward to spending more time en plein air.
This painting was done on the street across from Brath &  Hughes Fine Art Gallery in Mechanicsburg, PA.  The painting is on display there as part of the Mechanicsburg Architectural Show and Wine Walk.  Stop by to see it.
