That November Show was entitled 'No.5 Orange'.  It includes 7 pieces ranging from still life to abstract.  They were painted over several years but the unifying feature is the color of Fall - Orange!   


This is my interpretation of 'Grape Nest' by Gary Pruner.  I took his final Color Theory and Oil Painting classes before he retired.  I asked if I could copy one of his pieces in order to better learn his method.  I call it 'By Permission'.  It is the centerpiece of this month's show.  Measuring 18" x 24", it is oil on canvas board.

I did this painting as an impression of my own logo as seen at the top right of this newsletter, interpreted in another medium, oil.  It measures 6" x 6" on stretched canvas.

My painting was exhibited at Charmingwall Gallery located at 191 West 4th Street, between Barrow and Jones in NYC in their July show.

has been a fun interactive experience.  This painting was done in 2 hours at Lincoln Oaks recently.  I have photographed the final painting with the paints chosen by the guests at the party, also shown are the images and special effects selected.  As guests arrived, they were asked to make a choice and no one knew what another had chosen until I was ready to start.

I don't often paint realistic subjects but I believe an artist must try their hand at every method at least once.  Every painting experience can develop new tools for the artist's toolbox. 


 This was painted under tutelage of Bobbi Baldwin in her 8-part series called 'Techniques of the Masters'.  In this class, she demonstrates oil painting techniques according to the traditional European methods.  She still can offer workshops for painters interested in learning new techniques.
