October at Quarry Hill… This was painted on the most beautiful late October day–sunny and 65 degrees, no wind. It was a perfect day for painting. We spent the day at Quarry Hill Orchards and enjoyed the people picking apples, buying pumpkins and enjoying the […]
All plein air painting days are fun. However, some are definitely more challenging than others and really test our mettle as artists. This mid-October chilly day definitely tops the list. Mark and I decided to hike out into the middle of a farm field to […]
These two plein air paintings, completed a couple weeks apart are my ode to the Kitschy, iconic images of Marblehead, Ohio. Jacques and the Take a Peach to the Beach sign have been sights for Marblehead tourists for as long as I can remember. Who […]
This is one of my favorite spots, not just for plein air painting. But I took a hot summer day and painted the beautiful scene here with flowers, trees, the buildings, sculptures, everything. There was so much to see and take in and I tried […]
The weather for Plein air is starting to improve here in northern Ohio. We’ve had a few decent Mondays (and a few not-so-great ones, too) to capture some interesting scenes. Here are Emily’s Farm, Great Egret Preserve, boats at Catawba Marina and Lakeside. Enjoy!

Yesterday we had lots of plein air painters join The Group, after we were rained/chilled out last week for painting. We all went to the Lakeside Daisy State Nature Preserve in Marblehead, Ohio. What a wonderful flower in a beautiful setting–it was so picturesque. Here […]
Today is about the third warm day we’ve had in 2019….and it happened to be on a Monday (what, no rain today?) so I went out to paint en plein air. Today Mark DeLong and I went to Bergman’s Orchard/Farm Market in Marblehead, Ohio. The […]
It’s another great summer of plein air painting, capturing some beautiful days in picturesque Ohio. Howell’s Farm was a beautiful scene and a favorite spot. It doesn’t get any better than the farmer picking peppers and the farm dog running around while you’re painting!
I recently began painting en plein air with a great group of artists (The Group, actually) out of Marblehead, Ohio. We paint every Monday (weather-dependent) and I just love being outdoors and this style of painting. I hope to keep painting en plein air as […]
