Summer Remix

Light House Park (oil  8x10)
Hello again everybody. Once again I must apologize for my blogging break. But this time I'll make it up to you with a special treat at the end of this blog entry. Allow me to now to explain my absence these past couple of months. You see, this is the first year that my daughter has actually had a full summer break from school ( she's a 1st grader now )  And so my wife and I were a bit unprepared as far as a plan for summer activities for her were concerned. Many summer programs for were to expensive to pay for at the last minute. Thankfully we found a place called camp Grandma. Camp Grandma is a fantastic summer camp and the best part about it is that it's FREEEEE!!!! Thanks Mom for watching our chocolaty sweet daughter for us during the weekday mornings this summer.
I've posted a couple of plien air paintings that I did over the summer (yes I have been busy painting) The one above done whilst attending a cook out. The painting you see beneath was done en plien air on Audubon St. in New Haven. While my daughter was attending art classes at the Creative Arts Workshop I figured I'd use that time to brush up on my skills. This was rushed and very, very loose but it's still good to practice.

And now here is what you all have been waiting for the first video featured on my blog. A very moving tribute to Bob Ross put together by the people at PBS. And now may I present to you THE BOB ROSS REMIX. I'll more posts soon Enjoy!
