“Start Er Up”, Sheboygan County, WI

Start Er Up!

This painting was began en plein air (outdoors). The owner of the old International Truck was ever so accomadating as he charged the battery, got it started and moved it a few feet this way and that, while I tried to decide which placement would look best in my painting. The day was over and I was not finished so I decided to complete the painting on “Painting Journeys”. I also thought it would be nice if the veiwers of my show had a chance to see what the area I live in looks like. This is pretty much a scene right out of our countryside here in Sheboygan County. Many farms, old trucks and really nice people.

“Corner Garden”, Assisi, Italy

It is very hilly in the town of Assisi. Everywhere I went I was either climbing stairs or walking up and down narrow cobblestone streets. Such a lovely little town with the monks walking about in their cassocks and sandals. As I was coming back down the lane I saw this beautiful garden corner. I thought it was so charming that the arrow on the sign pointed in the opposite direction from the garden – or perhaps the joke was on me and a larger garden was just around the corner. The way the mediterranian sun spashed across the building and flowers hanging there was enchanting.
