Vineyard in Kenwood

The group gathered at Landmark Vineyard on the final day of Judy Butler's two day workshop, where we tried out using BIG brushes and LOOSE strokes. It was fun, and we're looking forward to the next workshop this fall.

The Artist at Work

Last Monday's venue for Monday Morning Painters was the Healdsburg Veterans Memoral Beach, but I chose to paint the old railroad station nearby. While I was hard at work, John Farnsworth (the junior) painted me and gave me the painting. Not only does this painting capture the essence of me, it is nicely rendered. Thank you John, and check out his blog at

Matanzas Lavender

The glorious lavender fields at Matanzas Creek Winery beckon many plein air painters during the June blooming season. I love the contrast of the orange unbrellas.
