This is the view of the Atlantic Ocean from Rough Point, the summer home of the heiress Doris Duke. The link will take you to Newport Restoration Foundation which has preserved much historical architecture in Newport, RI. It was a pleasure to paint there on a morning when it wasn’t open yet to the public and our group could explore the grounds freely. I chose a corner of the main house ( really more like a mansion ) and one of the many rocky outcroppings. Plein air at its best!

This 10x8 oil painting captures the path to the beach- always a new experience; will there be calm or waves, low tide or high? My footsteps quicken, I can’t wait to get to one of my most favorite places- the ocean.

With a 4+ hour block of time I took the car, then came back to the Bayonet and Blackhorse Golf where he was playing.
It’s in the town of Seaside, not far from Monterey and the Monterey Peninsula. Gorgeous, warm, quiet, and look who appeared as I was finishing up!

Maybe you who live here don’t agree but it was heaven to me.
I went over to the Santa Barbara Mission but was more interested in this house across the street. I couldn’t resist that tile roof.
In my happy place for a couple of hours!

When we were in Tillamook, Oregon I loved these large square format paintings that were on the side of buildings in town. Tillamook County Quilt Trail and learn more. Never knew there was such a thing as a quilt trail but why not? I love seeing and learning about new things, especially when they’re about artistic expression as it relates to place.

Have had internet issues (part of RV travel) so now I’m playing catch up. First plein air of the trip (back at the end of August) on Flathead Lake in Polson, Montana.
I painted from a parking lot overlooking a meadow leading down to the lake owned by the Conferedated Salish and Kootenai tribes.
Signs were posted saying this land was sacred tribal ground; I enjoyed the view of this gorgeous lake.
A view from my easel.
A little 5x5 sitting at the campsite overlooking the lake.
