Wow, I've let this languish for waaay too long.
I'm in the last month of my "painting a day" year. It's been a great learning experience ... but has come with some unexpected problems, too. I'll go more into that in the next few posts. Sorry that I've let this blog lapse ... again. I've started a new web site: jacklantzart.com. It's not quite up to date yet, but soon it will be and all of the paintings that I've done throughout the year will be represented. Also, soon purchases can be made there.
Here are a few of my latest paintings from November.

This is actually a study for a new version of the Storm on the Sea of Galilee.
This painting was done from a photo that I took a few years ago. I would have loved to have set up my easel on location ~ but it was windy and extremely cold.

I started this painting from sketches and watercolours as a demo at the ECCO Centre last week. I only have an hour to give a lecture on pioneer artists in Yosemite and do my demo ~ so the painting portion of my presentation only lasts for about 20 minutes. This is a scene I've painted a few times and the demo went well. It's just slash and dab to give them the feel of what a pioneer might have started out with, and then I unveil a "finished" painting of what it would look like with another 6 or 8 hours of work. This one is only 14" x 18" and I didn't put in more than 4 or 5 hours on it later in the studio ... but I may go back and play with it a little more ... preferably on location.
