Artists' Gallery in June

I'm working on framing a couple of charcoal gesture drawings for June at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville NJ. (June 4 through July 5).

Gesture drawings are very quick drawings to get a sense of the subject's character. My subjects don't pose for long, so these can be valuable resources for me when creating a painting.

May at Artists' Gallery

"Hi There" Military, Blue and Yellow, and Red and Green Macaws

Each month brings new wall spaces to fill with art at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, and this month I'm showing 10 paintings, three of which are my close up watercolor paintings of Macaws, "Hi There". It's an in your face perspective, that I believe really brings you closer to the character of the subject.
