My first semester of my MFA program begins with structured class time painting pleinair landscapes. Its not random that I chose this school for myself.
This group of paintings were all done at the Danbury cemetery near campus. We’ve been blessed with spectacular fall weather and the foliage is almost at its peek now. I love being a full-time student and the faculty at WestConn (WCSU) is fabulous. I don’t know how this amazing MFA has gone under the radar for so long. I think of it as 0ne of Connecticut’s best kept secrets.

These are all small studies. I have been using a limited palette as I refine my color choices but I’m ready to burst into a fuller color range soon.
