A Cleveland Morning

Went to Lakewood Park and proceeded down on the path to find a glorious morning view of the City on the water.  Standing beyond some rocks gave me a great perspective to capture this great morning.  It was a hot and muggy morning but my friend and I were perfectly comfortable with the breeze from the lake and some trees among the rocks to shade us.

Horseshoe Lake

This was a great day for plein air painters.  There were many of us gathered around this lake that was aglow with many colors and patterns.  The weather was perfect as was the company.  We all got together after painting to share our work and give opinions to each other.  Doesn't get much better when it comes to gatherings and weather.

On a Hill

This bright little barn attracted my attention while painting on a Wednesday with my plein air painters group.  This was at a park named Chippewa Lake but I decided to paint the landscape which surrounded the lake.  Evidently this was property privately owned siding with the park area.


My son owns property in Harrison County Ohio and my husband and I have a trailer there for a relaxing retreat place.  The property is an artists delight. It has an actual babbling brook and huge hills and valleys of undisturbed nature except for some mowed areas inorder to get around on 4 wheelers and around the barn and trailer areas.  I call this painting framed as I came across this almost framed piece of nature with a half dead tree in the center.  Awesome morning by myself in this large natural space.


Times Three

Just got done with a series of 17" squares for my daughter's hallway.  I enjoyed doing it and she was very happy with the outcome.  She drove in from Powell yesterday morning to pick up her paintings.  We had been discussing what to paint for her hallway some time now and decided on this floral arrangement.  These are done on gallery canvas and stems and petals are continued on the top and bottoms.


Bonnie Park

The weather was perfect in Bonnie Park and I had the privilege of hanging out with several other artists while I did this oil painting of a tree hanging over the water.  This one I did loose and in a quick time which I am working on and trying to perfect.



This was my first morning pastel while spending a work weekend at my son's property in Harrison.  Even thou I was there for mowing, etc., I could not resist this layer of colorful fields with the building in the background

Early Morning

Denny and I were staying a few days on my son's property in Harrison County, Ohio.  This was a work weekend but I managed to sneak away in the morning and do two pastels


Hutchinson Farm

This was a farm in Hinckley owned by a delightful woman who was happy to share her wonderful antiques and farmhouse with me while attending another Churski workshop.  She had a book that showed many wonderful old pictures of the Metroparks and the Parker Farm which I was been very familiar with.  Thou not a horse person as I was she told stories of her day camp days where she was taken to Parker farm to ride horses.

Hale Farm

This was a beautiful day at Hale Farm.  I was attending a workshop by Larry Churski and enjoying the great 80 degree weather.  Not the 90's that were prevailent in most of June days.  I was attracted by this cute little cottage tucked back in the trees.


Hinckley Morning

It was a beautiful morning in Hinckley Reservation and many of our Plein Air group showed up for their different interpretations of the wonderful scenery.  Many chose the boathouse but this lone tree with the background was my special pick


On the Square

We were on Medina Square painting on Wednesday May 9th.  Great to see summer coming.
