I am leaving tomorrow for a Caribbean Cruise on the Caribbean Princess. This will be our third cruise in the Caribbean, and I have never take a paint set, so plan on taking some acrylics and some 6×8 panels in case I have the opportunity to paint on the islands. I took a paint set on our Mediterranean cruise last summer, and the four paintings I did are my favorite ‘souveniers’ of all time. Below is a picture of our ship, the Carribbean Princess.
We will be visiting Princes Cays; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman; and Cozumel. I won’t be able to post any blogs on the trip, so will post when I get back with any paintings worth viewing.
Below are a couple paintings I did in the Mediterranean last year on Santorini and Rhodes.
Although it is a ways off, I have been invited by the Menlo Art League to do a demo at their monthly meeting January 9th next year. Not sure what I will demo, but most likely oil painting in a wet on wet technique. Below is a painting I did last March during a demo for the Los Gatos Art Association.

I went on a one day motorcycle trip to Yosemite yesterday with three other riding buddies. It was a long day, but the weather was beautiful. I don’t think I have ever been to Yosemite for just a day, as I always stay awhile and paint, etc. It was kinda hard to just drive into the park, around the valley, to Glacier Point, and then home. I kept wanting to stop and check into a motel. But, the trip was about group motorcycle riding, so will leave that to another day.
I did get some great shots, especially from Glacier Point which I might use as studies for future paintings. Below is a video I hacked together and upload to youTube. (Note: if the video does not appear below, just click here.)
