This painting is to celebrate this young man's first year of birth. He is having a joyful time discovering things and it's so much fun to watch him do it.    I'm working on a pastel painting of his Grandmother Betty right now.   I'll be posting it soon.

Ah........Plein air painting (painting on location)!  I'm Hooked!!!!  This is a scene I pass when going to Bentonsport from home 4 days a week.  I finally took the time to meet fellow artists and we spent an early morning painting.  It was nice for a change to "STOP" and really take in the view instead of driving by 55miles an hour.  Location?  On Hwy 2, Southern Iowa.
