June - August

It seems summer is flying by and with garden work, summer fun, like the Studio Tour, Super Garage sale and work at the Gallery, I haven't been posting very much.
I have not painted too many oils this summer, or should I say finished paintings..  The trip to Monterey/Carmel, painting with Carol Marine was very rewarding and I followed up plein air painting by monitering a class with T.J. Cunningham in our local area.
Personally, it has been a summer of eye stuff.  I had cataract surgery in June and then again in August.  Once, the first eye is unveiled you are amazed at how blue and cool everything looks; you keep winking from one eye to the other to see how yellow everything looks back to blue and clear.  I felt very worried about what I would be painting and if I would be reviewing the colors of my oils.  (yes!!)  I will post a couple of "finished" oils next time.

So, here is a brief recap of summer in sketches
