Next Up

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.

Still considering…

The National Juried Exhibition in Lynchburg is Next Month

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.

Cloud Studies

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.
