The Eclipse is Over

What better place to view the eclipse than from the shimmering surface of Lake Tahoe, hovering over the deepest part of the lake?  Kayaking among the rocks while the moon's shadow ate at the sun was a unique experience. The day became a bit dimmer and a bit cooler as the shadow grew, and as it receded the warmth and light returned to normal.  It was a celebratory paddle among the majestic Tahoe boulders.  

And then it was back into the studio.  Last week, while live painting at Spirit Gallery in Truckee I started a new canvas. 

Beginning of new painting.

Massive Boulders take shape on the canvas.

Painting at Spirit Gallery

The painting is now back in my studio where it will be completed.   This is a composition that shows above and below the surface of the crystal clear Tahoe water.  After today's eclipse viewing (it was inspiring) I am back in the studio working with the pigments to bring the under water area to life.

Summer Is FLYING By...

It's August, but you already know that. And it isn't even the first week anymore. This is the second week of August!!!  How can that be?  Seems like the summer is flapping it's wings furiously and flying at record speed.

I am happy to report that I believe I am ready to sign this painting (image above) and remove it from the easel, after two months of work. That means I will start another and be posting images of inspiration and progress.  And yes, I do know the subject matter of the next painting.  I am quite intrigued with one particular section of the painting shown above and will create a smaller work focusing on the one area, but it will have a different twist.

I am also preparing for a 'Meet The Artist' painting demonstration at Spirit Gallery in Truckee, CA on Thursday, August 17.  If you are close by, I hope you will stop in to chat, watch and see a variety of my work not usually shown at the gallery.

Enjoy the remaining weeks of Summer.  They promise to flash by and be filled with creative juice.
