What a lot of work - I never realized!  But it is absolutely gorgeous!  Great job - can't wait to see it 100% complete!

Hi Sharon,
I have a NY ISP now so I can do my online work.
Here are the fresco links.

I figure it will take 10 more days to complete.

Trenton - escape a good choice!  LOL
Enjoy New York - that's a nice area up there.  Unfortunately, the weather's not looking too good for this week.
I love the barn painting, vibrant but soft at the same time and beautifully rendered.  I hope you'll share pictures of the fresco in progress and completed.
I know this is off-topic - I promise not to "wander" anymore!

Right now I'm at my mom's house in Trenton, where I spent the first 21 years. I've been on Maui for the last 27. I excaped. Tomorrow I'll be in Mexico, NY, on Lake Ontario. Working on a buon fresco I haven't started yet.

Good grief - YOU are from NJ too?  What town?  Seems everyone I meet lately is FROM NJ (the lucky ones get to escape! LOL).  This morning while "Gallery sitting" I met an older member of SAA who I hadn't met before - turns out he was born & raised in Clifton!
I was born & raised in Bayonne.

Hi Sharon,
Yes the nice weather is a blessing.
This week I left Maui to visit the East Coast, NJ and NY. I'll be painting a fresco in Upper NY for a few months.

I brought my acrylics also, and a couple of panels because I heard there were a lot of flowers that I haven't seen in a long time. I left NJ almost 30 years ago.

I was here two years ago and painted this from my cousin's Mexico, NY backyard.

...

I guess acrylics are my all around favorite medium. Looks as if you may enjoy them also. I hope you put checks in Notifie of Replies for this Topic, and Notify of New Topics on the Home page.  Thanks for posting you're painting.

The warm weather has arrived and it's time to get out and paint!  Today our little plein air group went to a beautiful place called Fuller Gardens in Rye, NH.  The site is a historic preservation of the gardens constructed by former NH Governor Alvin Fuller back in the 1920s at his residence.
I used a controlled palette for unity: burnt umber, hooker's green, chromium oxide green, cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, cad yellow medium, naples yellow, and white.
What a pleasure getting back outside after a long cold winter!
