Old Forge Auction

The Old Forge Art Center held it's inaugural Plien Air Paint Out auction on Sunday. Several talented artists participated over two weekends culminating in a successful silent and live auction held on Mcauley Mountain. I was fortunate to participate and attend the event. Everyone enjoyed themselves including my wife and I. I donated an 8"x10" painted over the Moose River.

Autumn Morning

A cold wet morning today. The passing rain clouds combined with subdued cool light provided a wonderful moody setting for this 9"x12". I had to unpack the umbrella at least twice. Funniest of all, a farmer started mowing down the corn with his Combine right in front of me as I was painting! Such is the adventure of outdoor work :)

Fall Is Here

Where'd the summer go? It was a short season this year and fall is already heavy here in upstate NY. I'm hoping to get out painting as much as possible during this beautiful time of year.

This field painting is 8"x10". It was painted in Old Forge at the Toby Trail. COLD & WET! The cool overcast sky was a great foil for the autumn color but boy was it cold. Time to break out the winter garb.

It's been awhile since I've posted. I have a collection of work to update over time including a work and pics from a Marc Hanson workshop!
