I'm glad to be able to get a few hours in on this landscape today. I've been doing a lot of varnishing of other pieces which is essential work but seems to eat up a lot of painting time. I enjoy doing a landscape in the midst of a lot of still life work, too. It sort of clears my head and makes the ensuing still life work flow more easily.

Here's the beginning of a new landscape. Posting a painting in progress at such an early stage is a little intimidating as it may tank still but I think it will work out. This is a scene from the trip my daughter and I took to Ireland a few years ago. It is the Ballynahinch River in county Galway.
I'm painting this one in acrylic on a 20"x16" Ampersand panel.

Here's another small watercolor as I ease back into my studio routine. I got busy doing other stuff last week but will have to get back to work this week. This apple is just beautiful to look at, but it being August I really doubt it will be much good to eat, beauty being skin deep applies especially to storage apples in late summer. Still I couldn't resist it in the market and at least it's good to paint. This watercolor is 6"x6".

This one is completed and a rough ride it was. Anyway I'm pleased with how it came out and relieved we both survived. I don't know what it is about cherries and blue willow dishes but they always seem to go so well together.
