Edward Hopper Rooftops

"Edward Hopper Rooftops"
6x6 oil on Raymar panel

This month's Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge was to paint like a famous artist. 
Having just visited Pittsfield, Massachusetts, an old mill town whose Main Street is pretty much lined with stately old brick buildings, I chose Edward Hopper because I was reminded of his wonderful paintings every time I drove through the city.

Birds in Flight Triptych

birds in flight 

This little sketch is a preliminary workup to an idea I've been incubating. It's micron pen and watercolor with touches of metallic marker throughout. I'll probably leave the bird in the top center white because it was more powerful that way. 
Meanwhile, we are vacationing in the Berkshires and loving it!
Yesterday we drove to the summit of Mount Greylock. 

fabulous views from Mount Greylock

Finial House Provincetown

"The Finial House"
8x8 oil on panel 

My gal pals and I headed out Wednesday for our "jeep trip" to paint in Provincetown.
It was a glorious day and although it was a bit hot, once we set up to paint this awesome cottage, the breeze off the water and the shade changed everything. 
P'Town is known for being one of the original art colonies with a roster of who's who artists and as the Provincetown Trolley kept passing by, we could hear the driver saying, "and here are some artists", making us part of the 'show' so to speak which is just as it should be :D
We topped it off with an early bird dinner at Fanizzi's, which is my pick for dining in Provincetown and we all, if I may say so, got 'keepers' which was a bonus.

Last Tomatoes

"Tiny Tomatoes"
6x12 watercolor

Summer is officially over but you wouldn't know it on this 96 degree day. I'm off tomorrow for a "Jeep Trip" with my two Amigas. It will be a leisurely drive to Provincetown to paint. See you back here. Stay cool.
