Painting my way around Blowing Rock, NC

Painting Landscapes at Bass Lake

My husband has been working on a project in the Blowing Rock/Boone NC area.  As a result we’ve been traipsing back and forth between there and Charlotte.  I’m spending lots of time painting landscapes or plein air in this area. I’m trying to capture some of the amazing scenery around here.  It’s just so beautiful!  This painting was on the trail around Bass Lake.  It was my first experience of having folks come up and wanting to look. “Where do you sell your work?” was a frequent question.  So I need to get in gear and either find a gallery or something.  I have started giving people a photo postcard of one of my paintings with my contact info.  Looking forward to hearing from some of those folks!

One wonderful addition to my plein air equipment is my new palette that my hubby made.  It’s just a smaller version of my other one.  Much easier to pack and I anticipate finding a backpack so I can hike with my equipment and paint some less accessible areas.  This is all new to me so I continue to refine as I discover better options.  I am told that I’ll be restricting my palette colors eventually.  Still addicted to some of my colors even though I know many use many less than I do.  It continues to amaze me how much there is to learn with painting.  Good thing I love it!!
