"First Flurries"

While wandering around the United States this fall, I was very fortunate to land in Southern Utah.   During that time, not only did I get to visit with my dear friends Jeff and Cheryl,  but also to visit Zion National Park.  It was the perfect time to be there.  The Zion Plein Air Festival was taking place!  Many talented artists shared workshops and demos.   It was a great event!  Jeff and I both took part in any and all the painting we could.

This particular day was a beautiful day to paint.  The sun was shining a warm 80 degrees in the park... but our 1/2 hour drive home thrust us into some definite weather changes!   From warm sunshine straight into the first flurries of the season and man did it snow!    So "First Flurries" 8 x 10 original oil came to be.

Swansea, Massachusetts is a wonderful little New England town.  I was there visiting in October and while sitting on a dock wondering how to fill the day, I was visited by not one, not two, but dozens of beautiful swans.  How appropriate!   One swan in particular sat with it's wings fluffed and quietly paraded around saying in silent overtures,  "paint me"  and so of course, not being one who likes to argue with swans, did so.   Although it was a river, the name remains... "Swansea"
