Photo Adventures in the Wild (New Hampshire)

A positive aspect of staying home more means I’m able to spend more time in and around the woods and pond near my house taking photos of the animals and birds that I enjoy creating as paintings in my studio.  I’m frequently surprised and delighted by being in the right place at the right time (chipmunk in the pumpkin) and other moments when I really have to work at it by spending hours in a location to capture a photo (elusive and shy merganser duck).  I now have a lifetime of images from which to draw from in creating my watercolor art but I enjoy being out into the field and observing nature in person and in real time.  It helps me in creating artwork that is more accurate in capturing the setting and unique characteristics of the animal or bird I’m painting.

Copley Society of Art – Holiday Small Works Show

The Copley Society of Art is once again hosting the annual Holiday Small Works show at their Boston gallery.  It’s an opportunity to find my original small watercolors to add to your art collection or as a special gift for someone.   The gallery is open to the public on weekends and by appointment during the week.  Be sure to check their website for safety and health guidelines before going to see the show.   This pair of cardinals is each 6″h x 4 1/2″ w and ready to hang on the wall in matching custom made wood frames.  Consider the gift of art during the holidays!

Featured Artist – Met Cafe Gallery (North Conway, NH)

I will be the featured artist for the month of November at the Met Cafe located at Settler’s Green in North Conway, New Hampshire.  The Mount Washington Valley Arts Organization arranges rotating monthly exhibitions of local artists at the cafe.  My work will be on display from November 1st through the end of November.  I have an assortment of watercolor paintings of birds and wildlife in a range of sizes and prices.  All the works are framed in my custom made wood frames and are ready to go from the cafe wall to your walls.  While there you can enjoy something fresh baked and tasty from the cafe menu as you decide which of my artworks you want to purchase.  Hey, it’s a win-win for everyone!

6th Annual Open Studio (Oct 10th & 11th)

We’ve decided to host a modified version of our annual open studio event this year.  We’re sprucing up the garage below my studio to hold our event.  With a big door that can be kept open to the fresh air and room enough to allow people to spread out, we’re holding our “open doors” there.  You won’t recognize the place when we get done setting things up!  You’ll find many original works of art, framed and unframed prints and a range of hand crafted wood turnings that are as functional as they are beautiful.

We’d love to see you this weekend and are doing our best to be mindful of safety and health.  We ask that you wear a mask while in the “studio” space and maintain space with other visitors.  We’ll have a hand sanitizing station and extra masks, just in case you forget to bring your own. 

Conservation is important to us and each year we donate a portion of our sales towards this cause.  This year we will be donating 10% of sales at our open studio to the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust.  More and more birds and animals are threatened with extinction, some within our lifetime, so it’s become more important than ever to maintain our wild spaces.  By purchasing some art at our open studio, you can also help with the local conservation of our beloved northern region.
