Finished Workshop Painting

A while ago I posted some photos of a painting we were doing at Bill McCoy's workshop.  My unfinished attempt sat in the corner for quite awhile with many good intentions.  I hated that I could not get to it right away and each week that passed made it seem like a futile effort to even start but I finally dug out my notes and photos and went to it.  I don't know how much different it would have looked if I had gotten to it sooner but as I was painting I kept thinking back to things Bill had told us and realized that I had actually retained and was using some information without realizing it.

Testing the waters

I am back and hopefully for awhile. I have been blogging and posting on the Pieces of Eight blogsite and am going to try my own again.
The summer is hot, hot, hot and I have mountain envy. One friend is in the mountains and one is going and I am not so I am looking at old photos and paintings of my own mountain jaunts.
This is Childers Barn just down the road from a friends N.C. summer place. I just love the way it sits in the shadow of the mountain in a field of green upon green.
