Better late than never?

I'm trying to find my way around the desktop of my personal confuser and found a folder of images from my camera. Problem with huge gigabyte storage cards is that it's too easy not to be 'efficient' and file things in the present...easier to just keep adding and sort out in the future. That's why I'm just posting some paintings from Coleman FA's "Wet Paint" event, which I took part in last March, now in October! Somewhere I have the titles and sizes but that would require another half day of searching around. These were painted Mon thru Fri of the week and framed, exhibited and sold on Friday night. I wrote the pertinent information down back then but don't remember all of the details. All are oil and about 8x10, the boats being 11x14...I think. :)

You have a great gift got tonal values (on top of great sense of space and just being simply excellent artist). I really enjoyed the Laguna Beach Museum quick paints I'm glad there are many other venues with same concept.

Love love love your previous post with different seasons!

Hi Marc,
I found you via Diane Mize!
I appreciate your concept of a personal confuser, as I also have a hell-phone.
I enjoyed looking at your plein air paint-out paintings. Makes me want to be there!

Thank you Erika. It's so nice to be somewhere like Laguna or Charleston in March and to be on a beach too. It's all ice up here then. :)

theresa...I'm chuckling but thankful for your comment! Thanks.

cooper...hehe, I love 'hellphone'. That's the truth. Have you seen the youtube popcorn popping clips? That is scary.
Thanks.

- you have such a way with sky. wow.
and the water in the top one. the smoothness of it, plus the swells, plus the reflections, and then the perfect sailboat, etc.......drinkable, swimmable.
why do i live in cold minnesota. i want a beach, i want big water.
love that bottom one - the sky, the colors.
love them all.

oh, i left out the brilliant vast second one....that sky, the long wave approaching shore, the long beach........early or late in the day????
i just want to walk that beach all day.
why do i live in cold minnesota - did i already ask that question?
do you have an answer?
frank gardner is brilliant to have moved to the part of mexico where he lives. maybe i'll go there. good idea. his town is lovely - at least it was when i was there years ago. do you know how one moves to mexico?

anonymous...I am whole heartedly constantly plagued by the same questions as you...and would also like a beach...in Mexico? That seems brave to me. Seems so far away. Minnesota feels like home to me. It's closer to go almost anywhere from here, if need be. We're "Central" after all, cold at times, but central "by golly". ;)

i'm not sure "by golly" is doing it for me, today.

once it's full-on winter, i'll be okay........i like snow.......

: )

i'll try to cheer up.

anonymous as of today, Sunday, you should be fine then! Snow is coming or here in your case in Stillwater. :)
Happy Winter.

Well, the weather toDAY sure is great!!! Too bad I'll be inside working all day, but at least the view out the window is lovely.
I stopped by to see if you posted a pic of jack-o-lanterns artfully carved by your very own self - sadly, I see you removed the corn maze post.
Oh well.
Enjoy the lovely day!
And, I forgot to look again - isn't your show this week or next or starting today or soon, at least? Of course, as soon as I post this, I'll go check. I hope it's a wondrous success for you!!!
