"Clifton Caboose" Plein Air Painting Today

I've been wanting to return to Clifton, VA ... this time to paint (previously I was delivering a painting) ... for a few weeks.

Once is not enough as there are so many views to take in, so different from the top of the hill or down at street level. Beautiful shadows playing upon the faces of brightly-painted buildings. Plenty of people flooding the town, enjoying the day.

Hopefully, I'll make it back before all the leaves fall. Today was gorgeous. Perfect weather. Blue skies. I was VERY glad to be at my easel.

There have been many paintings completed this past week and others started. Here's the finished version of last Friday and Saturday's Studio Tour demo: "Crossword and Quince." A better photo will follow on my web site ... but this gives you a pretty good idea of what it looks like.

More to come in the next few days.  I'm thoroughly enjoying LOTS of painting hours. Yay!!!
