While I still have the ability, I am going to do portraits of my grandchildren. We will all only be this young … now!
With my one-man-show reception happening this Friday at the Larkin Arts Wine-Riner Galleries in Harrisonburg, VA, I am now thinking about the next oil painting. I think it will be a still-life of my watercolor butcher pan palette and glass water jar on the old wood side table. It is in my studio as I type, which would be very convenient! We’ll see, though. Still considering…
My oil painting “Fog” just received this award at the 2019 National Juried Exhibition at the Center For The Arts in Lynchburg, VA.
These are addictive. I have one more to do for my one-man show next month at the Wine-Riner Gallery in Harrisonburg, VA.
The two oil paintings they selected – “Fog” and “Cow & Trucks” – are framed, wired, and labeled. Next Friday I will be driving them down to the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, about an hour and a half trip. They both will be ‘Not-For-Sale’ because I will have them in my one-man-show at the Wine-Riner Gallery in Harrisonburg in May.

While I work on the “Approaching Storm” painting at the Beverley Street Studio School over the next two weeks, I am starting a series of small (12 x 12”) cloud studies here at home in my studio. Here is the first pass at “Cloud Study #1” begun with what I have already learned doing the larger painting at BSSS.
I had a pile of nearly black paint left over from “Empty Pint” and, rather than see it go to waste, added it to this work-in-progress.
This one is nearly done. It just needs a few touch-ups here and there, but I think one more pass should do it.
