According to my horescope for today, I should use my feelings as my inspiration...kind of accurate, since I've been spending alot of time on meeting my illustration deadline this whole week.

I've been painting forever in various styles & endless different subjects. Painting horses seem to be a subject I avoided. Lots of horse farms near me, so I have no excuse. This sketch is from a reference photo. Trying to understand the shape of a horse has been harder than painting an impressionistic  landscape  out my window. One should not get too comfortable, I guess this justify spending so much time on this one sketch.

from time spend in charming CONNECTICUT, to the immense solitary views of the Catskill Mountain ... all important part of my artistic development ...

landscape remains my principle subject...crystal clarity of a bright, cold late-autumn day ...

From visiting a farm stand to working up a small sketch, & a little extra magical help from photoshop ... I have a new design! I love creative days.

Montgomery Place Orchard in Red Hook, NY, is a wonderful Fall detour, the farm stand has many heirloom apples...beautiful display, & yummy samples...Just came home with many varieties to eat & draw...

Well, it's that time again...we got this powerful snow storm over the weekend! No more colorful foliage to paint. The muted blues & whites of a chilly foggy morning at 7AM, makes this a very simple & fast sketch to finish.
