I spent the day painting at the annual Cumberland County Plein Air Riverfest event hosted by Gallery 50 in Bridgeton, NJ. I painted two pieces on site. Each took about three hours. Both works are watercolor and feature the beautiful Cohansey River. Both works are available for purchase at Gallery 50 until September 27th.

Last night Asbury Park presented a special USO Pin Ups Dr. Sketchy’s. All profits went to the Wounded Warrior Project. The turn out was wonderful. Our glorious models were Victoria Belmont, Missy Heather, Rachel Bufano, Sammi Macabre Macabe, Carolyn Anne, Kristin Brad Wilson, and Tiffany Loretta. There was a special performance by Linda Zadzielski – Van Wagner.

Last night was Dr. Sketchy’s Asbury Park’s belly dancing event. I may be the only woman in the world who loves belly dancing as much as I do without ever having tried to belly dance. I adore belly dancers. Unfortunately, I forgot my paints. I had two stray tubes in my purse, payne’s gray and rose matter. My pallet was very limited, so I’m not truly happy with how these came out. Models were Sabrina Combs, Felicia Fatale, Lori Venus, and Ra’idah Dance.

Went to another Asbury Park session of Dr. Sketchy’s. Their branch is the most active I’ve encountered, averaging two events a month. Being by the Jersey shore on Memorial Day weekend feels good, overall it was an awesome day. Our skilled models were Luna Chase, Sabrina Combs, and Ryan Giampietro. The theme was Frank Frazetta.
As always, click to enlarge the images.

Atlantic City and I have a love hate relationship, but warm weather is coming so we may be setting aside our differences.

This morning I had the privilege of painting the Atlantic City Ballet as they rehearsed. The company’s beauty absolutely stunned me. Their skill, dedication, elegance, and joy truly moved me. It is my deep hope to work with them again.
As this was a rehearsal, I worked as they danced. These sketches are fast, wet, and unrefined.

I’m interrupting the seven deadly sins project for a very sad announcement. Earlier this week, Dorothea Tanning died at the age of one hundred and one. She was a founding member of the surrealist movement. She was an influential in the art world for eight decades. I do not say this lightly, she is my favorite artist of all time. The world is a little less beautiful without her.
Thank you, Dorothea, for doing what you did.
