Please join me on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25 & 26, 2018 for the Kenilworth Art Association Studio Tour. My location is 71 Finalee Ave., Asheville, from 10 - 5pm. Lots of new work and good deals.
Had a spectacular time this morning painting at the gorgeous Cram Gardens in Asheville. Hosted by Blue Spiral Gallery, 50 or so plein air painters enjoyed a beautiful morning and 80 degree temps to hike the estate and select one of a million lovely places to paint. Hope to go back again soon!
Recently finished this piece looking down towards Asheville from the eastern mountains. A stunning evening as the lights popped out. 12X16’ on Canson canvas board.
There’s something strangely satisfying about starting a painting with a graduated tint. This is going to be the Blue Ridge Mountains as night descends on Asheville. It’s 12X16” on Canson board.
Pleased to announce this piece has been accepted into the national juried show, "Bank of the Arts." Almost 600 works were entered, only a few over 100 were accepted.
About the painting: That moment when you sense a nasty storm about to reach you, but you have no intention of moving. The electricity is in the air, there's no where to go, yet still you can't move. This is an acrylic painting, 12X12", original with pouring and hand painting.
Back to work after being at a meeting in Boston, I've started on the first layers of the distant mountains. So enjoyable to work on this with music playing and thoughts of the trails. I will probably soften the transitions between shapes a bit, but hard to judge that until all the layers are finished.
