"Rainforest Rendezvous" is a new watercolor painting of male and female red-legged honeycreepers in Trinidad, West Indies. I really enjoyed capturing the greenery of the forest as well as the brilliance of these birds.

This piece will be featured in a Salon exhibit being held in November. If you would like to be placed on an email or mailing list to be notified of upcoming events or news, please contact me.

Phillips' Mill

I had recently entered the Phillips' Mill 81st Art Exhibit in New Hope PA, which is a very competitive local exhibit. It has been a few years since I have entered this show. I was happy to hear that my work was selected to be included in this years show.

The jurors have a huge task of selecting work from a large number of entries, in 3 categories. I chose to enter in the framed catagory, in which each artist is allowed to enter 1 piece. The total number of framed pieces entered this year was 317, the accepted numbered 97.

The exhibit starts off with an opening reception on Friday Sept. 24, 5:00 - 7:30 pm, with the exhibit continuing through Oct. 30th. Please visit for ticket info. and more details.

The artists were also asked to participate in a "meet the artists" series, a nice way to meet and talk in an informal setting. I'm scheduled for Oct. 7, 1:00–3:00 pm.

To tweet or not to tweet...

Ok, so, I started a facebook account about 2 years ago, and found it distracting, and ended up taking more time away from painting, so I promptly closed it out. Sorry to those of you I "abandoned" as friends. I really only wanted to post some art events, new art, and a few random thoughts here and there, so, I started a blog instead. Then twitter came out, and thought it was a nice quick way to let whomever is interested about art shows etc... and it turns out I like it better than Facebook, one sentence at a time ... and it had a bird in the logo ;)

If you're interested follow my twitter chatter, click here.

Art in the Garden...

I taught an annual watercolor workshop at the Leonard J. Buck Gardens in Far Hills, NJ yesterday. As usual, it was a pleasant event! There were 12 people signed up for the class at all levels of experience. We started the workshop with some introductions and a small demo, then proceeded to the Garden to paint and capped it off with a critique. Buck Gardens is a beautiful place, everyone seemed to have a great time.

Thank you to the staff at Buck Gardens, especially Patricia and Joanne, for continuing to make this such an enjoyable event. I really look forward to the next workshop! (Sept. 1, 2011).
