One last painting for my October show… Entitled Along the Battenkill, this watercolor painting is based on a photograph I took while kayaking down the quick-moving Battenkill River. The Joe Pye Weed along the banks made a pretty scene, even on such a cloudy day of kayaking. For this small painting, I used a #1 and #00 brush to create thousands of little dots for my shrubbery and trees.

Yesterday was the opening for the 2018 Pruyn House Juried Art Show. I’m super pleased to announce I was awarded Best of Show for my watercolor painting Winter Woods. The Pruyn House hosts a wonderful art exhibit each year, with 55 local artists chosen to show this year. Located at 207 Old Niskayuna Road, Latham, NY, the show will run though May 7th.
I’m calling this watercolor painting Garden Wall. I based the painting on a photograph I took last spring, in the Vanderbilt Mansion’s gardens, in Hyde Park, NY. It was a challenging piece and I had to start over twice, in order to achieve what I wanted from it.
This is an image of my latest watercolor painting, entitled Winter Woods. The painting is based on a photograph I took last winter, on a sun-lit hike into Wahconah Falls in Massachusetts. I’m very pleased with the way the rocks turned out, and I think the rocks’ details make them the central focus of the painting.
