Recent painting exhibited in Celebrating Movement
I just bought a new camera and have lots of new work to show. This week, I had a small painting of mine in a show, "Celebrating Movement" at The Del Ray Artisans Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia. The show just ended Sunday, but I found out my painting sold (my first!). November 2010 I had the privilege of participating in another show, "Blue", also at the DRA, and I painted 3 large paintings. I just finished one this past Monday and I am feeling really good about them. I can feel myself developing as an artist, really finding my niche. You will see the difference in my style when I put up photographs of my paintings in the next few days. Thanks for reading!
I am a landscape painter of the East Coast, based in Northern Virginia. I paint local scenes from the Mid-Atlantic region and from my summers in New England. For my oil paintings, I paint both en plein air and in the studio to achieve the semi-abstract representation of the landscape as I see it and as I feel it.
This blog showcases my paintings as I work on them and as I look back on them, techniques, inspirations, events, and snapshots of the stunning American landscape.
