Art Tour was a success

We had perfect weather for the "Fall Foliage Art Studio Tour" weekend. The sun was smiling upon all of us. Fifty art lovers found their way to my studio. It was fun, exciting and enjoyable interacting with the visitors. I sold two paintings, two prints and many cards.
I am enclosing two pictures of my studio and two others of budding artists who came to visit.

Inspiration overtook her - she created a small masterpiece

Pencil needs sharpening!  
Getting ready for the creation of a special piece of art. 
She gave it to me before departing.
 Here is the little masterpiece.
Her name was Danielle and she made it for me because
she was "Little" Danielle and I was "Big" Danielle.
This is precious!

"Red Earth"

 D.M. Le Bris Copyright 2010

I remember Huahine, an island not far from Tahiti.
I rented a bicycle and toured the island.
I traveled for six hours - many hills made my legs suffer,
  but the scenery took my breath away.
As I look from a hill's top, I discovered this incredible site of
red earth and pink sand caressed by the lagoon's turquoise water.
From memory I created this landscape
recalling the light,
the Tiare flowers' scent
and the magic of the pink sand.
I used my fingers and a palette knife to create texture.

"Spring Morning"

D.M. Le Bris Copyright 2010

This winter has been hard!
Snow, sleet, rain, severe flooding everywhere.
It is time for Spring to return and shower us with gifts of beauty!
I created "A Spring Morning"
thinking of the wonderful color palette,
a feast for the eyes,
as earth awakens from its winter sleep.
I used my fingers and a palette knife
to give the painting some texture.

Beautiful Day!

What a beautiful, magical morning!
The landscape is quiet;
wrapped into a soft elegant white blanket.
The snow en-robed forest seems to be petrified, waiting...
Waiting for the first kiss of Spring.
