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

Woodstock Art Festival (Woodstock, Vermont)

Here I go again on my own, going down the only road I’ve ever known.  Like a drifter I was born to roam… (sound of 80’s big, hair band drum roll here)  Okay, seriously, I’ll be heading to the annual Woodstock Arts Festival this weekend and it’s looking like it will be two days of gorgeously sunny, Fall weather on tap.  Not too hot, not to cold… just a perfect autumn weekend and in beautiful Woodstock, Vermont!  Can it get any better than that?!  You can find me in Booth #10 with lots of new watercolor art and framed and unframed prints of birds and animal art of all sorts to choose from and to suit all budgets.  Bring the wild indoors with some of my artwork for your walls!

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.

2019 Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition (Award Winner)

I had to read the email twice before I realized it really was my name as the recipient for the William Brauer Memorial Award, the highest award presented at this year’s Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition at the Red Barn Galleries at Lareau Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont.  I am so very honored to have received such a prestigious award from among all the exceptional works of art in this show.  It was several moments before I could articulate my joy and I’m quite sure my screech of delight was heard across the Connecticut river and all the way to the next town.  It’s certainly a moment in an artist’s journey that makes the creative effort and periods of doubt worth every bit.  At least, it is for this artist!
