• This morning painting at Table Bluff, part of the Ice Age trail and swamp lovers foundation. This is a beautiful area of trails that wind through restored prairie and oak savannah. Wisconsin is beautiful in September. #pleinair #oilpainting #pochade #hiking #wisconsin #iceagetrail #swamploversfoundation #discoverwisconsin #prairie #oaksavanah #painting #crossplains
  • A small quick tree painting, painted in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in Northern Wisconsin. What you can't see in the painting are the mosquitoes! However, it is a beautiful area of lakes, forest and camping. (18x24cm on Belle Arti Panel) #pleinair #oilpainting #chequamegonnationalforest #nicoletnationalforest #wisconsin #spectaclelake #kentucklake #camping #hiking #painting #discoverwisconsin
  • Small oil sketch of Lake Superior, in Northern Wisconsin. Painted at the end of a beautiful short walking trail. The trail is on private land, but open to respectful hikers to enjoy the beautiful walk and views at the end. The water was 68°F and great for swimming. #houghtonfalls #apostleislands #lakesuperior #travelwisconsin #discoverwisconsin #pleinair #oilpainting #wisconsin #painting #hiking #swimming #greatlakes #washburn #bayfield #echodells
  • Little oil painting from a few weeks back, the view from the kitchen window on a windy winter afternoon. Moving day, have packed up the little apartment and saying goodbye to this view. #oilpainting #melbourne #painting #pleinair #australia #rooftops
  • Afternoon sketching at one of my favorite window seats. I suspect many artists sit here and sketch, great for people watching and daydreaming. #caffeetorta #Melbourne #urbansketchers #watercolor #ink #sketchbook #coffee
  • Noosa, watching the waves and a few surfers. A really nice coast walk in the national park, a long part of the trail is paved and easily accessible. #Casuarina #noosa #beach #australia #sketchbook #watercolor #ink #queensland #surf #noosanationalpark
  • A little study on the beach, arms are a little tired (and out of shape!) after kayaking a complete loop around the island. Spotted some interesting wildlife during the camping trip including sea turtles, butterflies, many beautiful birds, shells of the deadly cone snail, and a spotted python napping on the back of the door of the pit toilet at Paddle Bay. #oilpainting #pleinair #beach #Whitsundays #islands #camping #hiking #kayaking #sandybay #paddlebay #australia #nationalpark #southmolleisland #southpacific #coralsea #lovewhitsundays

  • Little watercolor from this afternoon, what you can't see in this painting is the intense cold wind, the ominous dark cloud behind me, and you can't smell the penguin poo smell from the rocks around me! (The penguins are sleeping right now as I sketch). I will be dropping this and a few other watercolor post cards in the mail today. #mailart #watercolor #ink #melbourneart #urbansketchers #sailboat #postcard #stkilda #kitesurfing #sailing
  • Port Melbourne Fire Department Boat. They parked in front of my setup so I tried my best to quickly paint the boat in. Calm water today and a lot of nice people stopped to chat while I worked. I met a lovely couple from New Zealand, the firemen from the boat, a sailor about to depart on a world tour (first stop Fiji), and some tourists from China who had their pictures taken with me and invited me to visit them in China. Never a dull moment working outside! #pleinair #painting #oilpainting #stkilda #Melbourne #australia #pochade #sailing #firefighting #fireboat #firebrigade #skyline
  • Calm water on the Yarra River today, little grey day sketches from the Library at the Dock, maybe my favorite library.

  • This sketchbook just fell off the shelf and opened to this page, from a few years back, a day spent sketching in the courtyard of The Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan. The wonderful thing about opening to a random unexpected page in a sketchbook is I remember what the air felt like, what I was wearing, and the sounds below, while leaning on the railing above the courtyard careful not to drop my paints over the edge. #milano #PinacotecadiBrera #italy #italia #sketchbook #memories

  • Plums, one of my favorite fruits, not just because of the aroma and taste, but also the color. That amazing cloudy blue on the outside is an epicuticular wax, also on blueberries, kale and many other plants. This self forming wax has several purposes to help keep rain off the plants, keep moisture in the fruit, and in some cases protects against UV light and insects. #Epicuticularwax #plums #perfume #watercolor #fruit #painting #illustration
  • Not exactly a fruit, but more an enclosed flower, there is a unique fig wasp that has evolved to pollinate the fig. There was fascinating article in Huffington Post last week about the fig & fig wasp. Instead of painting my coffee this morning, I painted part of my breakfast, a little exercise to get my brain moving. #figs #watercolor #flower #pollination #breakfast #illustration
