Indian Point

Last night was another painting that was more of a slog than an inspiration, but even slogs are good to work your way through sometime. This is another done from a photo up in Canada this summer - at Indian Point, just outside of Port Elgin, NB, and looking across the waters of Baie Verte to Nova Scotia. Done on 9x12 Art Spectrum.

Point de Bute

It's been a busy month with travel and various Pastel Society of New Jersey activities, so not much time for painting! But yesterday I finally got back to it, and painted this picture from a scene up in New Brunswick, Canada - along the Point de Bute Rd., the back route from our farm to the town of Sackville.

It's done on 9x12 Art Spectrum as usual. I'd hoped to do some plein air while I was up there, but the mosquitoes were so fierce I had to content myself with just some snapshots. :-)
