I've been so busy preparing for my upcoming show there has not been time to post anything at all or visit a few of my favorite blogs! But i am well ahead of the game now and have 27 new paintings. My goal was to have 30 by the 30th of January. This is one of the villages i so love to put together. There are several along the same theme of varying sizes. This one is 22" X 30" on Arches Cold Pressed paper. My absolute favorite. I had some rough in my supply and started a painting on it without realizing it was rough till i put the first few washes down. The response was so different i struggled greatly. Now very happy to be back to the Cold pressed for sure. Hope all had a very merry Christmas and looking forward to what the New Year brings...
God bless. Ross


  1. Ross, may I spend the winter in one of the previously posted villages, but spend my summers in this delightful, serene location! Wow! I love your villages so much...I can imagine some movie producer buying your paintings as ideas for film sets for a great animated movie!
    All the best for 2011!

  2. good luck for your upcoming programs and have a happy and wonderful new year Lynem.

  3. Ross, my favorite paper also. and again a favorite scene .. love this one with the boats and their reflections.. Good luck on your show. and a very Happy New Year!

  4. Oh, Ros, son unas pinturas encantadoras!
