Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to The Blue Ridge and Not for Santa…

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!


Yea!  I had the time to paint this morning and am very pleased with the effect I am trying to get in my latest Blue Ridge painting.  I want strong contrast in an end of the day work that still has strong colors in the dark areas which is always tricky. There is a certain glowing sunset effect that I am trying to achieve but it is difficult.

The painting below is the closest I have come so far but I want a stronger light effect.  I am counting on the manipulation of the values to pull it out.  Second layer is pretty strong, but not strong enough.  This painting also has the strong blue clouds like the painting below but I want them to be darker and have that putty look that I often see in sunsets.

Anyway, today is such a great day compared to yesterday. We had to have our water heater replaced.  Our washing machine is right next to the water heater and when my son started his laundry, huge amounts of water covered the floor.  We didn’t see a loose connection  anywhere but that is what it was. 

What an ordeal cleaning up all that water!

Be sure to check out my latest youtube above. Very pleased with the strong light in this one. Artists don’t have light on their palette but we can create that illusion.

Nothing from The Word Man today but we did get a kick out of a joke on Facebook.

Santa is in front of a computer and he has over a million Facebook friend requests.

Santa says I knew joining Facebook would be a bad thing to do. 

Probably not the place for Santa!
