Evergreen - daily painting, Colorado

6x6" oil on gessoboard

so where does someone who lives on the coast go for vacation? Why - the mountains of course!
colorado actually
The painting is a little plein air of my sister's horse pasture and below some trip 'snapshots' ....we were deciding which way to go home when we saw the cloud....needless to say we went that way :)


Pablo Picasso and Francoise Gilot : Portrait by Robert Capa, 1948 gelatin silver print

I am often inspired by old black and white photos of people at the beach - and this is one of my favorites! I got a delightful comment by Mark Adams yesterday that reminded me of it, so I thought I'ld share....Isn't it fantastic? By the way if any of you have old beach photos you would like to share- send them to me! I'ld love to start posting them or using them for inspiration

My Boys - big

24"x24" oil on board NFS
My boys - big. Big- because our youngest is about to turn 10! (10,12 and 14 ) AND this is a 'big' painting for me...2 feet x 2 feet!! very fun, hope to do more when time allows. The cropped version is better - more interesting composition, think I'll paint it again...

If you find yourself on Water St. in Warren RI (and you should - lots of funky antique shops,restaurants,architecture,seafood...) over the next few weeks stop by the Yes Gallery and check out this group show featuring paintings by my brother - Dave Gonville
The opening is on Friday July 11th 6:00 to 8:30 with live music and free beer.

you tube

I just spent HOURS making a 'video' for youTube with some of my Beach Scenes. Probably would have taken my 14yr old minutes... here it is , it even has audio! Eventually I will do one of me actually doing a painting...make take a while ;)
