June 2014 – Athens, TX

This is a recent studio painting I did after taking a workshop in May from 
Artist, Bruce Peil. We did studies in class of this scene.
It was a very informative class and we stayed in the
Peil’s 1900 Craftman’s style B&B during the three day class.
Great group of painters!

 This month we travel to the Primorsky Kray region of eastern Russia,
which includes the city of Vladivostok and rural farming areas.
The farms had no fencing and the cattle grazed freely.
People could be seen watching the herds from the roadsides
and occasionally you see someone on horse back driving the herds.

 This month we travel to the Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After searching Google Maps I chose a small vine covered porch in Provincetown to paint. It must have been taken in summer, because all the flowers were in bloom. All the houses seemed to have lots of flowerbeds and the windows had flowerboxes. Lots of color!
