 I am finally home! I have been traveling for most of the last two months and while it has all been wonderful and amazing, it is good to be home. I don't have another big trip until March! (but then I will have a workshop every month after that....workshop schedule will be posted very soon!)

I plan to take this week to my studio organized and go through my reference photos. I'd like to plan to do a few series based on my recent travels. I am excited to get started! I am also working on plans for next year's Patreon page. I will be asking for suggestions for topics soon!

My watercolor sketchbook on the right

So we got in late on Saturday and yesterday was spent unpacking and doing laundry. By 5:30 I couldn't take it any easel was calling to me and I just had to paint something. I quickly took out. apace of paper and opened the sketchbook I kept on the trip to one of the watercolor sky study. I used the study for the painting. It was strange to use pastels after using watercolor and oil the last month! We will get reacquainted this week!

Thanks for your patience while I was away and I hope you enjoyed the posts from the archives. I will be back to posting here every other day with new paintings and inspiration!!

Thanks! No I used an old piece of Wallis pastel paper!
