Description
Seneca stonecutting mill in the national historic park of the C&O cannel. built in the early 1800's, it was once attractive. vandals have dug up the floor, mature trees have grown inside. the mill wheel is gone. graffiti covered every wall, rock and tree. graffiti white wash applied by another graffiti artist, covers all but their own work. a pitiful mess. fallen walls & trees clutter the back room where I still admire the craftsmanship while looking into the soul of its lifetime.

The winter classes are also enrolling now. If you want to join a class that starts in January, you must register now.
The Basic Drawing class is offered for the winter session. It’s a class for beginners who want a strong foundation of drawing. Exercises follow a brief lecture in this class.
The class that will start in September is also registering now.
Color Theory is one of my favorite classes to teach. Students learn how to use color, but more importantly, why. It’s a very exciting class. Students learn the exciting techniques that make work more realistic and beautiful.
Please register now.

Our Time by Vissari

This is the historic, Seneca creek aqueduct of the C&O canal. It has a bench within view where one can sit with company or just as contently alone. The purple and orange of the Redstone structures, built long ago, stand the test of time. In hope that they last forever, for generations of admirers to see. �Caretakers of the C&O protect it in a national park. The Park closes at dusk cutting my time short.

It was so chill out in the open. I had already painted one and was thinking of another. I hadn’t anticipated the room that the 24x36 … I’ll have to build a rack.
It was so calm. Staring into the close tree lines, just looking, while I stroll the property. A cluster of trees reminds me of the Claude Monet, painting Poplars. All my gear out. Two binders three pads, watercolor, oils and about 50 shades of graphite. I started with a 4H. The entire thing so soft and quiet. Like being in the open field, watching the tree line, while sitting in dads field.

Dad bought this a million years ago.
Dad and my uncles and all of my brothers camped together here.
All the orchard is gone and the crop is only field grass. A few bails, from years ago, sit outside the gate
All of the orchard is gone. There are tree lines separating four fields.
I set up my tent-hammock and went to paint. Learned to always keep the net zipped.
When I finally ate dinner (1/2 bag marshmallows was just what I wanted). Got in the tent-hammock and had the most relaxing and calming three minutes of my life, in the middle of the fields, until I got stung… had that hammock in a gator death-roll trying to get the thing off of me. Ripped a seam out and kicked through the zipper before comming out of that hammock like I was flying out of a slingshot. Believe that I thought to myself … 6 stings… what ever it was, was doing the same as me. Trying to survive. I think we both made it out.

this is the image that I wasn’t sure was done. Then decided this is exactly it. Because I did not want to draw attention to the shoe as much as always drawing the viewer ”down river” deep into the fog. Just looking:

This riverside bank is jammed with log and debris. Depth is simplified by the fog that covers the mass of the river. Nature landscape riverscape
I was there alone gathering my thoughts one December morning. The fog softens the reality just enough to be absolutely peaceful.

These are the images and caption that I put in my newsletter. They and collectors have first look. Anyone can sign up on my webpage. JamesVissari.weebly.com

The brand-new tractor sits in front of the Beallsville Garage in the hours of twilight. "Green Broke" is a term used by horse trainers. It indicates that a horse has been trained just enough to get a saddle on it. This brand-new equipment may have only plowed one field (Also reference to Green Broke) so far, with many more to come. The excitement of a new tractor working the bounty dawn till dusk.

I’ve done it. I’ve seen my magic and why I want to paint.

I had an original local here the other day. He’s about the age of my father. Looking at my paintings… he leaned in. Then leaned closer in with intense concentration. A smile started and eyes lit up as he said “that’s a Farmall”. Yes it is. A ’57 230 I believe.
He was somewhere in a memory. Smiling.

Here at Riverside Arts Center it’s my studio pice for open studio until 4:00.

It’s not as obvious in a picture. Look at the real Cadmium vs the cad red hue. The hue is much warmer and more orange.
The pure cadmium. RED

A few secret weapons. And everything

I am rebuilding my pallet again. I have a ton of plein air paints. I’ll end up taking some out, as I realize that I don’t need them. This is the most complete pallet you will find.
I ordered $150 of paint 30 ml sizes.
The color is about to be tried.
After all the plein air prep, you might ask what colors to use. That’s a personal preference but I do use all of these this way for a reason. Know why? Find me on site and I’ll tell you. You may already know.
I’m ready for tomorrow at Glen Echos paint out.

Watch many artists paint outside at the park

I love the sound of the Wurlitzer. It was adopted to send listening music to the visitors of a park. This one does wonderfully.

Carousel originated in Italy and Spain. It was used to depict a battle.

Dad would go to a park just for the music. He would sit there beside it for hours. Mom nixed getting a “one man band organ thing” for the living room 😆

I’m painting on location at Glen Echo with www.friendsoftheyellowbarnstudios.org
Saturday June 11. 10-6

See many Plein air artists and instructors painting in the beautiful park.
I’m excited to see how we interpret the lovely Glen Echo on canvas

Yes! You are invited. Come watch us paint.

Chasing Swirls is exciting

IVe been “Swirl hunting” for a project. I have had a few weeks of looking for it.
The right conditions over a good wheat field has been allusive.
Listen to how excited I am to have a start on a five year old idea.

Had this Titanium white way too long a little lumpy and stiff.
I also noticed some yellowing. Maybe from linseed oil in the binder.
Mulling tools would be too big here. So… with a little clear binder a few drops at a time, swirl , grind a few minutes and it’s all good. Now a container and working from the stuff left on the mortar and pestle.

This Cityscape / small town scape, is where the windows from my piece "evening prayers" were recycled too. Stained Glass glowing to its original magnificence, dominates from its corridor as the newer structure is shyly in the background. Architecture is topped, with a most interesting, Bell tower / belfry that encloses the bell-chamber / Campanile where a bell on a wheel, drapes rope to the ringers making melodies while the clapper strikes.
