I took off today to spend some time with my kids before they go back to school tomorrow. It was a windy, sunny day so we took our sketchbooks and kites up to a field in the neighborhood. Good wind for kites, and some good downtime for sketching and playing at the playground. Their papers and paints kept blowing away. I kept it simple with pencil and a 4×6 Stillman and Birn Gamma sketchbook.

Sunset over Gulfport, MS
I was in Gulfport, MS recently for work. I didn’t get a chance to paint while there, but got a nice photo of the sky over downtown (painted just now) on my way to dinner at Corks and Cleaver, a very cool farm to table restaurant with delicious food and a great atmosphere. Highly recommend it to anyone who goes to Gulfport.
The painting was done with in a Pentalic wayercolor notebook with Sennelier Yellow Sophie, Daniel Smith Prussian Blue, Schmincke Permanent Carmine, and Sennelier Titanium White.
Thanks for reading.
Completed PA town church
Change of plans
Rural town church
A couple weeks ago we were driving through rural PA on the way to take the kids snow tubing. I took a picture of this church in one of the towns we passed through. While I am not showing the surrounding buildings, which were in some disrepair, I am trying to use the sky to express that mood, with some hope and potential to be found through sunlight on the side of the church that I haven’t yet painted. We’ll see if it works.
