Virtual Paintout…January 2015 (Philadelphia)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Skulling on Schuylkill River”
Philadelphia, PA
8″ x 10″ (Oil on Canvas Board)

For the month of January, 2015 we traveled to Philadelphia, PA. I used “Google Street View” to find a scene similar to one painted by the great American Painter, “Thomas Eakins”. One of his favorite subject matters was rowers on the Schuylkill River. Wish I could paint half as well as him, but I had fun doing this little painting of a single skuller on the river. Hope you enjoy, and check out the other paintings for this month at http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/

Virtual Paintout…December 2014 (Rome)

“Balconies in Rome”

8″ x 10″ Oil on Canvas Board

For the month of December we traveled to Rome, Italy. I used “Google Street View” to roam all over the city, visiting all the historical places. I knew all the other artists would be painting the historical sites, so I chose this building with balconies flowing with flowers and hanging vines. Everywhere I looked could have made a painting.  Hope you enjoy the painting.

“House with Vines”

9″ x 12″ Oil on Canvas Board

Luxembourg is a landlocked country in Europe, bordered by Belgium, France, and Germany. With beautiful scenic views, including pastoral and urban areas. I chose to paint this rural farm house, with all the red vines growing up the side. I enjoy using “Google Street View” to travel and view places I would never get to visit in person. Hope you enjoy the painting.

made of porous stone and limestone. According to Greek Myth, the Temple of Delphi
was where the God Apollo slew the vicious Python.
Afterwards, the temple became dedicated to the God,

and was rebuilt for the third time in 330 B.C.
