Wow, spent a whole day in the studio just painting. Finished another river painting and a figure painting. Then started a second figure painting. I have not been painting in oils - been doing watercolor for about four years. I have taken out the oils and I am really enjoying them. I guess once schooled in one method it feels like home. I am eager to continue and see what develops. It is all a part of a journey.

We need to get to the root of our creative practice. Sometimes that means going home. This past weekend we went home to New Jersey, the place where Rick and I began our married life. Lambertville, NJ is a sweet town filled with amazing little galleries and shops. This painting is from a view on the bridge that crosses the Delaware River into New Hope, PA, looking down river editing out buildings and people floating in inner tubes. Just the river.
