Buggy Ride 24x30

Buggy Ride- 24x30
contact me for price and availability

the finished painting. I fixed the slope in the far left horses back and tightened up a bit the driver and people in the buggy. also changed the color (a bit) of the house and worked on the car some.
just got back from teaching in Atlanta and Roswell Ga.
the first was at Binders Art Store in Buckhead then I went to Roswell Fine Art Ass. Both classes were full of passionate painters and great people.
I'm trying to get into the painting groove but finding it hard with all the traveling. I need to find a nice routine of doing admin type stuff in the morning, painting in the afternoon and playing music at night. once I do that for a few days in a row I find my groove and can paint. if I'm all over, here and there its hard to concentrate on the paintings. I'm not complaining, just giving you a little insight into the world of a fulltime painter. its very little actual easel time if you added it all up. I'd like more time there but it doesn't work that way, like I wish it did. workshops help pay the bills so I'm not complaining a bit! 
a typical day in my life involves blogging, admin stuff like keeping up the painting database, emailing about workshops and gallery commitments. travel to and from the workshops, and time teaching. Buying materials to paint with, finding locations to paint plein air, and the travel to get to those places, as well as a myriad of other errands. all these things (and more) keep you out of the studio, but are very necessary to make a living in this business.
I'm blessed, for sure!

That is such a romantic portrayal.
