Blaze of Glory

This 6"x12" was a real challenge and not just because the sun was setting fast. I had HIGH winds to say the least. It was so bad I had to use one hand and part of my body to "lean" into the easel to keep it from flying off as I painted with the other hand :) It's a miracle I got anything!
The sunsets here in upstate New York can be just fabulous and It's such a privilege to try an capture one.

Golden Pathways

This 11"x14" will be shown at The Gallery of CNY in Cazenovia New York as part of their "Just Flowers" juried exhibition. The original 8"x10" field work was painted last spring on a farm property just up the road from me. It's always interesting to take a plein air piece and change the format for a studio painting.
Gallery owner Jennifer Schutzendorf says this is one of the gallery's most successful shows so if you live in the area, opening night is April 30th, 5-7pm. The show will be up May 1st to the 22nd.
