Tennessee - February's Virtual Paint Out

This month our Virtual Paint Out destination was the state of Tennessee. We were assigned a small area south of Nashville to Route 840. I chose the rural town of Franklin. This was another opportunity for me to employ my figurative art class into this simple landscape.

February is my quiet month. After a very busy December and January it's great to use this month to catch up on little projects, read and just relax.

One of my not so little projects this month is converting our old slides into digital images. I found a great item on Ebay that scans my slides onto a sd card that I can load into my computer. Then I can sort my slides and correct the images in PhotoShop. This long overdue project is time consuming (I’m only halfway through) but seeing those old images again has been wonderful. And some of these old images will make good painting references.

Thanks for visiting,

Day #28 of the 2017 30/30 Challenge

Yesterday's painting. Three more days and three more paintings to go. 

I have today's painting laid out and hope to finish it this evening. We're going to have company for supper so after they leave I will go back to my studio. Now I must go back to my kitchen.

Out of the Mist, 6x8, oil.
This is a 6x8 stretched canvas, gallery wrap with a one inch profile. 
The painting continues on the edges so framing isn't necessary.


This painting is available in my Ebay Store - small paintings, landscapes

Thanks for joining me,
