Three new imagination pieces that I am oddly enough pleased with. The bottom one has the frame included to show the color of all my frames now. I've gone to one color to keep a uniform look in my booth and can easily make repairs. The jury results are starting to roll in for next year so keep an eye on my show schedule.
Yes I have been painting. No I have not been posting. It seems the blog world is disappearing. It's a pain updating my website since I have to enter the code for the you tube links and stat counter.. Anyhow 2 of the new figurative pieces will be at the Art Association of Harrisburg;s figurative show in January and the 11x 14s are from my latest trip to Annapolis. The 30x 40 is from upstate new york. I will be going on a painting trip in March to southern Virginia with my friend David Oleski filming the outing so come spring I will have some exciting video to share.
Alright! The book is now available and I'm proud to say that I am one of the 100!. Gary Pendelton put together this wonderful documentary of plein air painting in fine fashion. There is going to be a book signing at Mcbride gallery in Annapolis MD on Nov. 15. I will be there as well as many others doing a paint out and signing books which are available there as well as on Amazon. Speaking of plein air the 2 below are new from a friends farm close by.
Here are 6 new 6"x 6"s that will be at Isadore gallery in Lancaster PA. for the holiday show in December. I have a few other new ones to post shortly. These are all scenes from our cabin in upstate New York.
These are some new plein air pieces that I will be showing at the upcoming soiree. The event is at Italian lake Saturday, June 21st. I will have other work also as well as fellow artists Julie Riker, Steve Wetzel and Jonathan Frazier. For more info check out the art association of Harrisburg website.
2 new pieces done from images captured during the New York state trip. The sun only showed itself a few times so I wanted to do some larger bright pieces back in studio. This is the winter that won't quit in the northeast USA. These paintings will be refreshing during the summer shows when the temps approach 100 F!
I am an oil painter. I paint mostly from direct observation both indoors and out. I studied at the Art Students League Manhattan under Daniel Dickerson. In my work I strive to maintain a balance between abstraction and representation all the while keeping atmosphere most important. View my show schedule to see where I'll be exhibiting.
