November and the Meadowhawk

October is winding down and I'm gearing up for an event on Nov. 6th. It will be a "salon" style exhibit for one day only, a more relaxed show, some conversation, some art and some refreshments with some good folks! Here's a piece I'll be bringing to the show, I've also placed more new paintings on my website.

The painting shown was inspired this summer, while I was teaching a workshop at Leonard J. Buck Gardens in Far Hills, NJ. There were several of these red dragonflies flying around and these wonderful pod-like plants by the pond that gave me an other-wordly feel. Intricate, yet simple. Upon further research, I determined these were Autumn Meadowhawks. This info. actually put a smile on my face due to the irony that I'm basically known for being a bird artist (although I do like to paint a variety of different animals).

If you have interest in coming to the "salon" please contact me through my website.

Fall in Vermont

I spent a lovely weekend in Vermont, helping Robert Paul Galleries celebrate their 20th Anniversary. The gallery is a beautiful space with a variety of different and accomplished artists from all over the country. I was able to get to meet a few of these artists, and had a very nice evening.

Vermont is a beautiful state, the colors in the Green Mountains were awesome, although I was told I missed the peak probably by a few days due to a bit of heavy rain and wind recently, still it was nice to feel that crisp cool air and view the fall foliage a bit earlier than I would have normally.
