Spring Paintings and Sketches

Prat Reed Reservoir, Stillman & Birn, Epsilon sketchbook, and markers,(Copic, Prismacolor, Utrecht Design, Uniball Vision pen)

I absolutely LOVE sketching. It's a passion and something I do for myself. I've never sold a sketch and probably never will. I have stacks of sketchbooks filled with colorful, fun drawings. I used to have a blog where I just shared my sketches. After a while it got to be too time consuming to write for two blogs and for a while I posted everything to one blog and eventually when I changed the blog name to The Poetic Landscape I pretty much stopped posting sketches.

Recently, I decided to re-activate my sketching blog Pen, Pencil, Paper so if you're interested in seeing more sketches I encourage you to go visit.

Meanwhile, the second Spring Auction at Salmagundi Club is going on and my painting Queen Anne's Lace, 16x20, oil, below has a bid on it already.

If you're looking for a burst of spring (btw the peepers are singing in my marsh tonight a sure sign of spring!) look no further than the Salmagundi Club Third Annual Sylvia Maria Glesmann Floral Exhibit.  Both of my painting were juried into the exhibit.

Miss Florence's Garden, 8x10, acrylic, a beautiful little plein air study

Pansy Pandemonium, 10x10, acrylic, It doesn't get more colorful and spring-y than this! Happy to report that this painting won the Salmagundi Club 2nd prize in the exhibit.

I'm working very, very hard on a new painting, that in mood and color is inspired by George Inness painting A Gray Lowery Day. I hope to be done in about a week and then I will share it with you.
