Montenegro Revisited

I was so pleased to find the time today to finish this second painting of Montenegro, our Virtual Paint-Out for December. It was snowing outside and a nice afternoon to spend in the studio. I have a favorite CD of Robert Frost reading his poetry and he was the perfect companion for today.


This was my initial lay-in.
I'm using the reference photo from Google Street Views
downloaded into my Kindle.

Donji Stoliv, Montenegro, 9x12, oil
Some paintings are hard work and some paintings are pure joy.

Montenegro - December's Virtual Paint Out

The small country of Montenegro is located on the Adriatic Sea directly east of the Italian peninsula. Bordered by Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania, it covers approx 5,333 sq miles, slightly smaller than Connecticut, and is home to approx 650,000 people.

This beautiful country offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe, with rugged mountains averaging more than 7000 feet in elevation, glacial lakes, the 4,300 foot deep Tara River Canyon, its remote National Parks, charming medieval villages and beautiful beaches along the Adriatic Sea.

The small coastal region enjoys a Mediterranean climate of sunny, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. The mountainous central and northern regions have a more severe climate with heavy winter snow in the higher elevations. Because of the terrain, farmland is scare but wineries abound and Montenegro is a popular tourist destination.

I hope to have time to finish a second painting. The scenery is spectacular.

Thinking of the beautiful autumn days that we had this year.

Silver Moon

This painting was inspired by the cold, grey days that we have had this week. Not much snow here and not much sunshine.

Our Virtual Paint Out for December is a visit to the small country of Montenegro with its spectacular mountain scenery and warm sunny beaches. Lots of sunshine there. I have started my painting and hope to work on it again tomorrow. December is a busy month for us all.
