Unlike our trip to Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, last week, it was warm and sunny at Eden Park this week. Strolling couples, kids playing in the ponds, Mothers yelling at them "DON'T", joggers, picnickers, and too many cars driving through.

We had a warm winter, but it was COLD the day I checked out Cherokee Park, here in Liberty Township. Sun was breaking through intermittent clouds with snow flurries. Got some useful photos.

The well groomed homes along Riverside Drive in Covington are that way for a reason. The home owners have dedicated crews out grooming and pampering their yards on a regular basis. Beautiful homes with beautiful grounds.

From a photo taken on one of our hikes from "60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Cincinnati", this one was in Versailles State Park in Indiana. Backlit figure against the shadows of the creek bottom. Fall leaves in the creek and sun sparkling off the water.

The fog was just lifting when I went out to the north end of Mason-Montgomery Road in Turtle Creek Township. A beautiful blue sky was above the fog layer and you can see how the water vapor became thicker as you looked in certain directions.

Something We're Not Seeing

Winter's Sweep
12"x 24", Oil on Canvas
02/2017

A LOT of my paintings are devoted to views of the Southwestern Ohio countryside where something has caught my eye. Most people will drive on by, but I have to stop and take another look... We're not seeing much snow this winter; it's been warm and wet. This scene is from a couple of years ago, on a very cold day with brilliant sunshine. The furrowed bank of the raised drive leads across the snow covered fields to the white farmstead on the horizon.

Morning Sunlight

Concourse– Morning Light
12" x  24", Oil on Canvas
1/2017

This is a studio piece from photos taken during the Mariemont Plein Air event this last fall. My plein air piece from the same location was posted just after the event. It is of the view through the Concourse looking out to the Little Miami valley. This is the east side of the Concourse with sunlight filtering through the surrounding trees and dappling the wisteria and grass.
