Some new Plein Air paintings from last couple of weeks. I have started going out again once or twice a week. Prescott is so green right now, I am afraid I am going to run out of green paint!!!
My current model Justin. An actor, an athlete, ex air force. And a very nice but intense person. I had a lot of fun painting him, I was very unhappy after the first session, but I am happy with it today after my second session. Now I just need to work on the background and Continue Reading

These eggs are from our chickens. Lovely, vibrant red and blues and white shell colors and bright orange yolks.
