April






I spent most of the week painting in the Leiper's Fork area and Thursday morning had the opportunity to paint with Leiper's Creek Gallery owner Lisa Fox. She doesn't get the chance to paint as much as she used to due to the time that the gallery takes so it was good to see her out. I also picked up my first sunburn and tick of the season.

Wow, beautiful paintings. What a fluke! Just the other day, we drove by you while you were painting on Boyd Mill. As we drove by I tried to peek but couldn't see anything - and said to my husband, "I wonder what he's painting." Today, a google alert for Leipers Fork pulled up your blog today and paintings. Nice to "meet" you - I look forward to seeing more!

Next time stop and I'll show you. There's a lot right there to paint and I am sure you'll see me there again.
I agree though, what a "fluke".

Great stuff! Hill top on #1 is particularly well done. Woodsy ground vs spring grass.. Says early Middle Tennessee spring.

By the way Ouser, I showed your blog to my students in class Thursday night and they were impressed with how well you did flaking and chipping paint on the old weathered building on your last post. You're now the go to guy for weathered paint.

Cool! Work those students! No slacking in drawing!

Hi Kevin. Great paintings. Love the handling of the grasses.

I live just north of the KY line near Dale Hollow Lake, and picked up my first tick of the year while painting last weekend. I hope tomorrow is tick-free!

Bill - I've moved ahead of you. I am well beyond my first tick of the season and am now headed into double digits. I am turkey hunting first thing in the morning so am counting on the numbers to go up quite a bit by tomorrow afternoon.
