    If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!


    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

This is an older painting that I hadn’t seen for awhile, so I decided to pull it up to the top. Every once in awhile, it’s good to look back. :)

This little brook runs behind my house, from its source on the lake to the reservoir. It is the favorite hunting ground of this Great Blue Heron, who is never far away, and often perched on our lawn as you see him here, enjoying his latest meal. It sure was hard to paint him tiny enough to be in scale in this small painting! This was a test drive for a larger version that I’m considering.

My palette:
Titanium White (RGH + Griffin)
Cadmium Yellow Lemon (Rembrandt)
Cadmium Yellow Deep (RGH)
Cadmium Orange (WN Artist)
Bright Red (Pyrrole — WN)
Ultramarine Blue Deep (Utrecht)
Transparent Red Oxide (RGH)
