Memorial Day Plein Air

Maria and I spent the afternoon at Noxamixion St Park today. We found a spot under a tree that offered a lot of shade and enjoyed the view of the lake and the marina area. I brought my cigar box painting gear and did a small 5x7 of the sailboats out on the lake.

Watermelon Slices

5x7 oil

A small study of watermelon slices. Trying to get a feel for color, texture and a juicy look.
With the holiday coming up I'll get another try at painting some watermelon.

Fishing at Sunrise, Promised Land Lake 11 x14 oil on canvas

We were first introduced to this lake and State Park back in 1970 when my dad and uncle took us camping for the first time. What an adventure that was just being outdoors for the whole weekend, fishing out on the lake and sitting around the campfire at night.

Its a beautiful State Park loaded with wildlife, trails for hiking, and a great lake for fishing and canoeing.
Even though its three hours away the great feeling you get being there keeps us coming back as many times as we can each year.
