Rained Out

This 6"x8" was painted in the back lot of a local store here in Utica. Raining all day, the football field was soaked and empty. Catching my attention was the highly reflective lot against the grayed and muted mid-ground trees and mountains in the background. I've been fascinated by city scenes for some time and am happy to post the beginning of probably many more cityscapes. Having spent many years living in a city it is a part of me... It was a fine day to paint!

Great Time At Gallery 3040

Erin and I had a great time at Gallery 3040 as perhaps you can tell from this video. There was live music and the bassist was kind enough to let me "noodle" after. :)
Thank you to everyone who came, it was such a pleasure to meet so many art lovers! I've included a few pics from the event. Again, thank you to everyone who came and said hello and to Deb and crew at Gallery 3040 for a great night.

Reception at Gallery 3040

Gallery 3040 in Old Forge, New York will be hosting a reception for yours truly Friday, August 6th, 5-8 pm. Erin and I would love to see you there. Gallery 3040 is a special place in Old Forge. Owner Deb Burrington has focused on only handcrafted work from a select group of fine artists; you'll find original works in oil, pastel, and watercolor. Deb has also collected gorgeous pottery, glass work and jewelry from the Northwest of the country as well.
As for me, I have 25 plein air pieces as well as studio paintings in oil at Gallery 3040... thus the reason for the reception :) I'm told there will be wine and a good time had by all so we'd love to see you there.
Attached is the latest studio painting just delivered to Gallery 3040, "Blaze of Glory" at 12"x24". The picture doesn't do it justice (I promise) so you have to come to the reception to fully appreciate... :)

Hope to see you there,
