Lots of painting going on right now, both inside the studio and out.  September was a spectacular month with its soft light and warm days.  Now it feels like Autumn.  One more workshop for sure this year:  Saturday, October 20, from 10 til 1.  For more info please e-mail: art@jamesbrandess.com.  Wishing you a colorful and painterly October!

Hello!  I hope you are all having a wonderful Spring.  All sorts of weather this Spring: cold, rain, humid heat, and crystal like glass clear, cool days.  I have been painting in a field of Phlox, though a lady learned in botany tells me she thinks this incredible field might actually be a field of 'Dame's Rocket', which , frankly, looks like Phlox to me.  Next Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19, these paintings will be on display in my studio.  I hope you can stop in.  We're open all summer, every day, 10 til 8.
