I like the cherry beach one too.

Hey Mike

LOVE the Chinatown painting!

I'd love to see the real thing in September if you haven't sold it by then.

See you then!!

Great post Mike. Convincing colour temperatures in each one of these.
Hey, did you hear about the art/PA event in Newmarket September 20th? Artists will be setting up shop on the street to sell, and others will just be there painting. I'm going to go basically plein air paint all day. Don't really care about selling them, but people will be walking around, so who knows. Can you make it out there?

hmmm should have read the above comments before posting that.

Your smokin' dude!

marcobucci said...

great new ones. Looks like you tightened up a bit? In a good way, though.

Michael Pieczonka said...

Hi Marco, Thanks a lot for the comments. I have been out on a bit of a tear lately. Also, I'd really love to go to that plein air event in Newmarket (sounds like a great venue) but I'm going away next week unfortunately. : (
