Paint in the Date - Cranford, NJ!


This Spring offers exciting events which I am happy to share with you! This year I was invited to participate in the Cranford's Artist Open Studio Tour 2009! Artists' home studios together with local businesses hosting visiting artists will provide the venues for exhibitions of painting, photography, stain glass and more! Between the hours of 12 and 5 PM some of Cranford NJ's very best fine artists as well as visiting artists will welcome you into their studios and work locations. Whether it is a Cranford artist or a visiting artist, they will guide you through their creative process. See works in progress, finished pieces and demonstrations during this self guided tour. Artwork will be available for purchase. Please come join me at the Cranford Artists' Open Studio tour scheduled for Sunday, May 17 12 to 5 PM! Advance ticket purchases are available.

This painting is done, finally!  :)  "Bold as Brass" 16 x 12. It needs a good frame and soon will be ready to take to the gallery.  Another all brass painting will be executed shortly, so stay tuned for new images!

Works in Progress





These are a few pieces that are in different stages of completion.  The top plein air piece needs another afternoon out in the field.  The weather lately has been overcast and rainy.  I am hopeful that the weather will break this weekend and I am crossing my fingers that similar if not identical lighting conditions will return!
