Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Just taking the opportunity to post this painting which is titled "Greens".
This was painted during one of my oil painting classes.  I set up a still life of all green objects to fully explore the color.

Breaking Ice Around The Bend

11x14 oil

Artist friend Beth Bathe and I painted today at Fort Hunter.  Probably my last time to paint the ice this season since a lot of it melted during the few hours I painted this. Another sign of spring was the swarm of bugs that were clinging to my paint, palette, crawling down my shirt...I think at least 20 of them hitched a ride home in my gear. A bit of Googling and I learned they were Winter Stoneflies. Apparently they come out of the river in the early spring sunshine, feed on vegetation, mate and lay their eggs back into the river.

St. Paul Lutheran Church in Dillsburg

That's me on the scaffold.  I painted this wall in Sherwin William's "Major Blue" and stenciled the fleur di lis design as a backdrop for the figure statue.
