sold

I dropped off 17 paintings to the SaratogaArtsFest Center and Gallery yesterday. I’m thrilled and honored to have been selected once again this year to be a part of the Featured Artists Exhibit. I am showing with Jack Metzger (sculptor), and Rebecca Kane (photographer). Jack’s sculpted objects are delightful, and Rachel’s photos of the mineral springs around Saratoga are colorful and vibrant! It’s going to be a great show.

The opening reception is scheduled for next Tuesday, 5/27 @ 5 PM. I hope you can make it!

The Road Home

The Road Home
2/13/14 | 4×4″ | Pastel

SOLD

Heading towards the fading light, finding my way home.
I am almost half way through this project. It’s so funny how it’s become a habit. I start to get cranky if 9 PM rolls around and I haven’t started painting yet! Now if I could only figure out a way to get my cardio in while I paint!

Until next time…

SOLD | Private Collection in Saratoga Springs, NY

A little sunset for today. I have to say that this daily practice is so satisfying. My friend, Kate who happens to share my birthday has also been painting/drawing every day so far! I definitely get motivated to get moving when she posts her beautiful work on Facebook. It feels great!

Until next time…

Softly She Rises

SOLD

Inspired by the full moon rising over the lake a few days ago. Pale as can be, she was barely there yet ever present.

I picked up my paintings from the gallery today. I’m happy to report that 17 works of art have found new homes. The show was an all around success, and I am grateful for the wonderful feedback, support and well wishes. Michelle LaLonde of Mimosa and her team did an excellent job of connecting my work with wonderful people. I am honored.

I spent the evening reading through some of the comments left in the guest book, and got a little teary eyed. These little notes are so special to me. As an artist, I really want others to see the world more beautifully, so I am pleased when that connection is made. Thank you all for for sharing your thoughts with me.

Until next time…

Brilliance Over the Mohawk


12×12″ oil
Sold. Private collection in Red Hook, NY

My latest oil of a spectacular sunset I saw a few years ago overlooking the Mohawk Ricer. It was so awesome, I had to stop and snap some photos for a later painting. Three years later, and here it is!

Free Painting Give-Away Reminder – Drawing Tomorrow!

Also – A reminder that June 19, will mark the 7th anniversary of my first blog post. In previous years, I’ve done some sort of give-away to celebrate. This year is no different, however, I am including a couple giclee reproductions for my Facebook page fans as well.

I’ll also do a drawing for a small original painting of my choosing exclusively for email subscribers. Previous collectors have the opportunity to be entered multiple times.

If you are interested, you can enter the drawings several ways:

1. Go to my Facebook Page and hit “Like” (#300 and a friend wins a giclee)

2. Email subscribers are automatically entered for the original give-away.

3. Previous collectors have an extra opportunity to win – please leave a comment or send me a message letting me know which of my paintings you currently own. Your name is entered for each painting. Therefore, if you have 3 of my paintings – you are entered 4 times – 1 for just being a subscriber, and 3 for each painting in your collection!

Fun, huh?

I will do the drawing on 6/19 for the original.

Thank you, and good luck!

Another visit to the marsh, this time capturing the last moments of sun light on the tree tops. How fortunate to have this beauty steps away from my studio!
