I took a "working vacation" last week. I started out with a few oil underpaintings, which are taking days and days to dry enough to continue working on. Then, I pulled out my tiny watercolor set, a prized Christmas gift from my son, and sketched my surroundings.
Please plan to attend the opening reception for my upcoming show with five other distinguished artists, "Making Our Mark". Mark your calendar: Saturday, April 7, 2018, 5 – 8 PM Sprinkler Factory, 38 Harlow Street, Worcester Gallery is open weekend afternoons, 1-4.
I'm taking an online course on simplification. So far it's a lot of fun, and forces me back into the studio — a long, 20-yard walk in sub-zero temperatures and over a foot of snow these days. After working on my homework and 3 additional works-in-progress, I finished up my day with this 8 x 10, a snow scene painted over a badly failed, 2-year-old painting. My back yard.
It's been so long since I shared anything here that I thought it must be time. Here's a recently-finished painting of a doorway in St. Augustine, FL. It looks somewhat European, I think. Le Macaron, 8 Cathedral Street.
