Fall Lineup...

I'm cleaning up the details to my fall line up!  Visit my website to see the new fall classes schedule and for information on how to reserve your spot.  The fall plein air workshop on the Cape is filling up; you can find information for that on my website, also.  I am working on a commissioned portrait which I will post for you when it is completed.  And I am getting ready for the Andover Art in the Park which is quickly approaching!
This painting just went to a new home:

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

It's Been Awhile...

Wow - time passes so quickly!  I was surprised to see how long ago my last post was.
There is a lot going on...currently I have pieces in two exhibits at the Newburyport Art Association.  The first is my plein air group show, "A Brush with Beauty" which runs from August 7 through the 19th.  I am showing 11 pieces.  The reception is this Saturday, from 7-9 pm.  Stop by if you can!

I have two paintings in the Newburyport Art Association's 8 Cubed exhibit, a show of 200 - 8" x 8" unframed canvases!  It opens tomorrow and the reception coincides with my plein air reception - this Saturday from 7-9pm.

There's no time to waste - I am actively working on pieces for the Andover Art in the Park outdoor show coming up in September, and the NAA's Fall Juried Shows, Parts 1 & 2 along with a few others.  I will keep you up to date on what's happening!

I have been studying portrait and figure work and decided to copy a master painting to help. I settled on my favorite painting by John Singer Sargent - The Oyster Gatherers of Cancale.  Here is what I ended up with:

Next is a photo of a recent painting that never got shown - it sold from my website the day after I posted it and is being shipped to its new home in California:

That's about all for now!
