It was another beautiful evening at the Spice Acres Plated Landscapes!
While guests strolled around Spice Acres listening to live music, noshing on delicious starters and drinking boutique cocktails, I was busy painting this pathway as the sun began to set. What better way is there to spend a summer evening?

Plated Landscape Fun!


Evening

12 x 16

Oil
$575

Last night I had the privilege to paint at Spice Acres Farm while they were hosting a Plated Landscape Dinner. If you have not been or heard of the dinners, they are a farm to table dinner. They start on the farm side of Spice Acres with cocktails and hors D'oeuvre, which includes a tour and explanation of  sustainable farming. Followed by a delicious dinner in the barn, its quite a enchanting evening.
Last night was no exception, with perfect weather, food and staff the evening was delightful. Here's the link if you're interested in going.

 I painted Evening as the sun was going down and the fields, trees and haystacks glowed with evening hues.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Working a New way, Inktense Pencils and Painting from Studies Only

Study of  June Moon


June Moon
6 x 6
Oil
$125

I'm completely enjoying my new Derwent Inktense Pencils!
They are great for capturing a moment in time, using great color.
They are easy and on the ready when I am! 
The first picture was a study I did on Saturday night from my deck. I decide I would use the study to create a painting, remember the scene and referring to the sketch.
Happy first week of Summer and Go Cavs!
Peace,

Studio Vincenza June News!
 I moved some new paintings to Spice Kitchen and Bar in Gordon Square, that I painted this spring. Mean while on the east side part of town there are new paintings as well in All Matters Gallery in Chagrin Falls. So whether you are on the east side or west side of the "Cleve" you can see original Vincenza.
I did Blue Morning Peonies this week in the early morning. It had been raining a lot and I wanted to be sure to paint them before they were done.
Happy Summer!
