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.
Two of my watercolor paintings, Autumn Gold and Quiet Cove, have just been accepted into the 2018 North East Watercolor Society (NEWS) Annual Juried Show. The show runs from February 4th – March 20th at the Orange Hall Gallery, 24 Grandview Avenue, Middletown, NY. Gallery hours are Mondays – Thursdays 10 am – 8 pm, and Fridays 9 am – 6 pm.
The Colonie Art League is currently having their annual art show at the William K. Sanford Library. Work will be on display until December 29. My watercolor painting Kaleidoscope is on display, along with two of my Faces of Spring paintings.
Watching the Sun Set
This recently completed watercolor painting is called Watching the Sun Set. Based on a photograph I took while on an evening paddle in Little Round Lake, this Great Blue Heron was frozen in place watching the sun set as we kayaked by him.
The following image is my latest commissioned painting entitled, Adirondack Stream. It’s a large watercolor painting measuring 24 x 33 inches. The painting is actually a compilation of three different photographs, depicting the scenery and elements from a peaceful canoeing trip in the Adirondack Mountains.
The Saratoga Arts Annual Show is opening today at the Arts Center Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY. The show runs through December 31st, and will be open late for the Victorian Street Walk (Nov. 30th) and First Night (Dec. 31st). My watercolor painting, Island, will be on display, along with over 100 other local artists’ work.
These two commissioned paintings depict the same scene, shown both in winter and summer. I painted them over several months apart from each other. It was quite challenging to first photograph, then paint the scenes, making sure each one matched the other.
