I am pleased to announce that the painting above, Lake Ontario Sunset, has been accepted into the 2018 Northeast National Pastel Exhibition at View in Old Forge, NY. My pastel painting will be on exhibition at the arts center from June 23rd to July 29th.
On my easel today is another sunset painting that I created using soft pastels. It’s almost complete. I think the most challenging part was the cloud formation in front of the setting sun. You can find this image and others in my portfolio on the website.
It’s mid-April and we still haven’t hit warm temperatures here in the Northeast. So, as I was sifting through my personal reference photographs I selected this image to paint in oil. I took this photograph a few years ago at the marina during the Seneca Lake Plein Air Festival in Geneva, NY. I named it “Till the Weekend”.
I’ve been busy creating new work in soft pastels and oils. Be sure to check out my portfolio to view them. I created one piece, twice….once in pastels and another in oils. The piece above is the view behind a friend’s home. Winter just won’t say goodbye yet…still snowing in April!
Today I dropped a painting off at View in Old Forge, NY for the 2018 Central Adirondack Art Show. The group show will run from April 14 to June 10, 2018. A reception will be held May 5, from 5 to 7pm. This event celebrates the talents of artists within a 200 mile radius of the multi-arts center in Old Forge, NY.
