“Life is what happens to you, while you’re busy making other plans”. So you see this Cali-Series is still not complete. In the coming weeks I’ll share a few combined with current new paintings. I’m glad many deadlines are temporarily set aside or completed. To make room for painting and to enjoy summer. This is “Vanishing point at Sea Lion Cove” California 8, 24×30 cm, 9,5″x 12″, oil on canvas panel, Roos Schuring 2013 (sold) AVAILABLE AS A PRINT | IN
Fun stuff. Ending my Blogspot-blog in 2013 I saved a few posts in draft. Among those this one. You know, I myself forget what I worked with in the (recent) past all of the time. So this is a reminder for myself as well. Goes to show that a successful end result isn’t in the tubes. It’s how resourceful you are? Yes and no of course. Some colors you’ll just NEED. And that might be a very personal thing. I emptied
Happy to say that all of the work involved did pay off. The Summer Sale Worked! Some asked me How to do these Promotion Times- Go here.

And we celebrate the Finale Today. I close AGR at 3 pm. I’m again pouring Champagne, just like when I

Painting with Friends on Summer Beach Last week I found Corry Kooy in the Festival in Katwijk (image at end of article) and painted a day with Karl Terry, Michael Richardson (UK Painters) and Stuart. Fun how whe each did the ‘same’ view. All so different yet so interesting. I love the enthousiasm in the characters in Karl’s, a lively strong painting, love the shades and perspective in Michael’s, that hazy feel also, love mine (and all 3) for its
Best thing that I did recently was painting in Amsterdam again. Might have been a year ago when I painted there last. I was accompanied by an American painter, Stuart Fullerton.

(Link to the VIDEO: http://rosepleinair.com/video-sunny-sky/) Have been sitting behind my screen a lot lately. At one morning the sky was particularly interesting, having rain coming the blue can get pinkish. The sound of birds and a big peaceful view. I took advantage of this moment to try out my new camera.

The outcome brings you further.
“Visualising scenic beauty” I’m not being ‘cocky’ when titling it this way. People approached me when painting on the Carmel beach, asking me- “What are you painting?” I replyed in a (probably) dull way, because later on the (Indian) wife came up to the easel and she corrected me: “You are visualising scenic beauty.”After I was repeatedly saying to myself “REMEMBER this, This is what it is. Essence found. In three words.” This is also a reason why some works
