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!
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!
