Newport Harbor Light for Christmas

This is the Newport Harbor Lighthouse on Goat Island in Newport, Rhode Island. It's actually decorated like this for Christmas but I've added the internal red glow. 

This 8x10 pastel is available through the Sheldon Fine Art Gallery at Bowen's Wharf in Newport. 

Sheep May Safely Graze

Yes, I placed sheep in this one. And there's a bunny on the lawn of the house picture!

Fini! Nash Hopper House 1772

Turned in three framed pictures. Show is tonight. There’s a bunny on the lawn.

The Colonial Inn is Signed

One down, two to go. All three need to be turned in by 2 today.

Finished Study

That's good, now on to another view and a little different, smaller building, with a bit more sky, then room for the Colonial Inn sign.

Straightening Things Up

Moving along! Nice to have an enthusiastic reaction from those passing by. Off to a fun start.

First Sketch

I've checked in at The Arts Council and already started my first painting. It's a nocturne, of course, soon to add candle and lantern lights inside and out of the old Colonial Inn, which dates to 1759. 

This is a 14x11 canvas study, and next I'll sketch in a larger 20x16, covering the entire piece of linen and aligning all the elements. Stay tuned! And please share the link.
