I haven't lifted a pencil or brush all summer/ We've been travelling around the Great Lakes exploring the Upper Peninsular in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Dakotas.


Last week we arrived at our "winter Quarters" in Arizona and immediately I plunged back into the local arts groups. I took 6500!!! photographs and now it's time to paint. Lighthouses have been a major subject for my camera.

Colored pencil

I alsp have a Plein Air Group meeting tomorrow afternoon to paint a sunset at a ghost town. Never having tried a sunset "Live" I thought I'd better practice tonight.

Good to see your work again, Brian.  I, too, love lighthouses.

Have fun in Arizona.

Thanks Dennis, a bit of photo distortion there I think!

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Wow, Brian, I just love all your paintings which are excellent. Your colored pencil painting looks so smooth and very neatly done as they all are.  Great job. Enjoy your Winter stay in Arizona and looking forward to seeing much more of your work.
