Finally home and missing my daughter

Well, my wife and I arrived home from Tennessee on Wednesday and I will have some pictures for you tomorrow on the blog here. My inlaws are staying in Tennessee through Saturday and since my mother in law watches the baby while my wife and I are at work, she is staying with "Grandma" in Tennessee until tomorrow. She is in good hands I know, but this is the first time my wife and I have been apart from her for more than a day and it is killing me. I miss her so much that I can't even concentrate in the studio. She has been our joy for the last 17 months and I can't wait to see her tomorrow.
Most of you know that I am primarily a landscape painter, but since my daughter was born, I have felt the urge to start working on more portraits. I will show some portrait work here soon as well.

More fun in Tennessee

Well, tomorrow my wife and I will be driving back from Tennessee to come home to North Carolina. I did squeeze in a small 5 x 7 acrylic plein air painting yesterday, but I am on my inlaws laptop here and don't have a way to post the pictures of it( no memory card slot)!
Also very sore today as we did some white water rafting yesterday. I couldn't carry the camera or paint from the raft of course, but my mind's camera captured scenery for future paintings. Anyway, Im will have more pictures to post when I get back home to the studio. Be looking for some new paintings when I return.
