Holiday Small Works Show (Copley Society of Art)

I have new watercolor art hanging in the annual holiday small works show at the Copley Society of Art gallery in Boston, Mass.  This show is easily one of COSO’s most eagerly anticipated events.  The gallery will be donating 10% of sales from the show to the Boston Public schools education department.  I love this way of giving back to the community!  My painting of a Barred owl, titled, “Prelude”, is 11 1/2″h x 14 1/2″w.  Beginning with an open reception on November 14th (5:30pm-7:30pm), the show runs through December 23rd.

Autumn’s Artwork (Fall in New England)

What’s not to love about Fall in New England?!  The brilliance of fall foliage, cool crisp nights and sunny days, taking long walks in the woods, migrating bird sightings and photo opportunities, sweater weather and sitting by the fire, cups of cocoa and my personal favorite… hardly any bugs!!  I look forward to September and October all year long and revel in EVERY moment of it.  The ducks are reappearing on the pond as they begin to migrate and I never know what I’ll see when I step outside the studio and walk down to the water’s edge.  The fruiting trees are loaded with fruit, around which animals and birds of all sorts can be seen.  I’ve even eaten a few apples myself.  After all, when in Rome… 

I’m working on several small paintings of a few of the creatures I’ve seen lately.  These new works will be heading down to the Copley gallery in Boston in early November.  More on that soon!

Copley Society of Art – “Embark”, the Small Works Show

The newest small works show on exhibit at the Copley Society of Art in Boston, Mass is on the walls and open to the public.  This themed show is about beginnings or to start something, such as to “embark” on a journey.  I submitted two works, one of a fawn learning “deer ways” from it’s mother, which is inspired from watching a doe with a fawn who makes regular appearances in our yard.  I’ve titled this painting, “Learning Curve”.  The second painting is of a snowy owl, many of which travel great distances to find suitable nesting grounds or wintering grounds is titled, “Wayfarer”.  If you are in Boston, be sure to stop by the gallery and check out the exhibit.  You can also go online for more info and to view the artwork at https://copleysociety.org/exhibitions

A Hidden Nature Solo Exhibition

The Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester, Vermont will be hosting a show of my watercolor paintings.  I’ve been working on a series of paintings with a “hiding in plain sight” theme.  Some animals and birds use their surroundings, others use the color of their fur or feathers and still others by using a stealthy, quiet demeanor to accomplish these hidden talents.  Come to the show and see if you can find the hidden nature of my art.  The exhibit opens on August 31st, with a reception from 2:00pm-4:00pm.  The show will be open to the public until October 6, 2019.

Red River Theater Art Exhibit

I currently have an exhibit of owl art hanging at the Red River Theater in Concord, New Hampshire.  The theater, a long time fixture in down town Concord, offers local artists a gallery for showcasing their work.  I’m delighted to have an exhibit featuring many of my most popular owl art as well as for the chance to introduce my art to a new audience.  If you are a fan of owls, then it’s the show for you!  All the framed works can be purchased at the theater either before or after you see a movie.

Artisans On The Green (League of NH Craftsmen)

Hello there!  Yes, I’m on the road once again and this time I’m heading down to Center Sandwich, New Hampshire for the Artisans On The Green artisan festival.  The event is held on, yes… you guessed it, “the green” in front of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen gallery.  You can’t miss it!  The weather is going to be a bit soggy but don’t let a little rain dampen your spirits.  I will have lots of artwork on display, something to fit all budgets.  I will also have a large “step by step” panel that shows how I go from start to finish with a painting, since “The League” is all about learning and promoting artistic skills.  You can find me at Booth #14, along the side of the green right on Main Street.

Copley Society of Art – “Evolving” Exhibit

This is another new painting currently exhibiting in the Copley Society of Art gallery in Boston, Mass.  It’s part of the “Small Works-Evolving” exhibit which is open to the public until August 18th, 2019.  For the theme of this show, I created works of art that reflect the “evolving” changes that are rampant in nature during the spring season.  It seems as though everything is happening at once.  The trees are growing new leaves, blossoms are budding and the songbirds are migrating back, looking for love and building nests for new life.  

This painting of a pair of Common Yellow-throat Warblers is titled, “Ladies Man” and is available.
