Exhibition at Bausch & Lomb

I currently have an exhibition taking place at Bausch & Lomb in Rochester, NY. Unfortunately this is not open to the public. It is however a great opportunity to display in the hallways of an international company. Thank you, Jean, for allowing me to share my work with the B&L team.

A Painting of Maisie

So I have been in my depressive phase of painting, meaning that I haven't picked up a brush in close to a year. Part of that was due to the fact that we recently moved and the chaos of moving is not conducive to painting.
Once we were moved in I got my new space set up with my easel, taboret, and paints... then I just sat there...waiting for inspiration to hit.

A short time later Mary's Uncle, David, commissioned me to do a portrait of his friends dog, Maisie. I accepted and dove right in. It was great to smell the oils and the mineral spirits once again ( I love that mixture of smells). I also love the feel of the paint as it's being manipulated on the canvas.

Thanks for the kick start, David. Hopefully I can start producing again.

The Atwater Estate Vineyards

During the month of October my work is on display at The Atwater Estate Vineyards and Winery.

The show's theme is landscapes, flora and fauna of the Finger Lakes region.

Sunday, Mary and I took a trip to Atwater Estate in Burdett, NY and set up the display. If you happen to be traveling in the Finger Lakes area, be sure to stop by this winery on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, enjoy some great wine, a beautiful view of Seneca Lake and a selection of my recent paintings.

So here is the final image of my painting "Chrysanthemums". This was a fun painting to do. I explored more with glazes on this piece than I have with other pieces. This piece will be donated to a benefit auction for the Rochester City Ballet.

Progress Pics

Here is the second progress pic for the Chrysanthemum painting I'm doing. I'm trying something a little different with this painting. I am hearkening back to my acrylic days and putting down layers of thin glazes in an attempt to create depth.

As usual I have several paintings going at once. Here are some progress pics of a hollyhock I'm also working on.

Jeremy Lipking

So last weekend Mary and I flew out to see the new Jeremy Lipking show at Arcadia Gallery. I was not disappointed. First of all Jeremy's work was exquisite. Just inspiring. As I have said many times it was Jeremy's work that inspired me to start painting with oils and expand my subject matter.
Second we had an opportunity to meet Jeremy and his beautiful family. This was a great thrill for me. I just wished I had an opportunity to talk with him longer.
