The Newport Art Museum which took place this weekend. A fun event that I've participated in for years, we painted at the State Pier again. I started 2 paintings before this, the 1st boat left the dock, wiped that off. Luckily I hadn't gotten very far into it before the owner and his young daughter came aboard, getting underway 10 minutes later. The 2nd one didn't get too far either before being wiped off. This one came together, but not without a struggle. Took alot of photos for studio paintings. Want to explore a larger format with these boats.

The Portsmouth Arts Guild I usually try to paint a simple still life. Found this shell on the mantle in a bowl, perfect as I've done several other shell studies this summer.Mike Rooney was teaching a one-day workshop that particular day, which looked like a fun, super informative class. He's got a very full teaching schedule, glad to have met him.

The Spring Bull Gallery where I am the guest artist for the month of August and September. I also have a larger painting on the wall. I will be sending them some jpegs and my bio so that there will be some info about me on their web site soon. Great location on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island. I am delighted and excited for this wonderful opportunity
