Paine Falls in late summer

I painted most of this earlier this month, but the water going over the falls was reduced to a trickle because of the lack of rain here. I listened to the downpour we had Saturday night, and knew that the falls would be running decently, so headed out there early Sunday morning
to fill in the water in the painting. I may paint there again once the leaves change.

11th hole at Erie Shores

I painted at the Erie Shores golf course the other day as part of my ongoing "paint the MetroParks" project. I had never been on a real golf course before, and it was quite an education. The golfers and management were great to me.

Sunset over Mosquito Lake.

Mosquito Lake State Park is located just north of Youngstown, Ohio. I was painting there with my friend Nancy and we encountered this marina close to sundown.

An Ohio New England Village

Hudson, Ohio is near Cleveland, Ohio, and is a picture-perfect example of New England architecture. This area, called "The Western Reserve", was land set aside for payment of Revolutionary War soldiers in the Connecticut Line companies for their service in lue of money, which the young nation had none to spare. They brought their building methods and styles with them, and Hudson is living proof of it.

47' Desoto

I went back to paint this iron monster again- no plastic in this baby!

55' GMC

I left in search of something to paint this morning and I found this 55' GMC on display at a local town festival. I had fun painting it, and best of all, the owner bought it right off my easel.
