NEPA Regional Art 2008

prints available
Two of my Fig Street Series plein air pastels will be shown in this exhibit. My work will be hanging at the Hope Horn Gallery, University of Scranton, although the exhibit includes Keystone College's
Linder Gallery, AFA Gallery and Marywood University Galleries as well. The progressive reception starts on the 11th at 2pm at the Hope Horn Gallery. I will miss the festivities because I will be here in the studio hosting visitors during the Artists' Open House Weekend.

Both paintings were done on location in my daughter, Zoƫ's, Scranton backyard garden. It is a lively and colorful spot.

Artists' work was chosen from 25 counties;16 in Pennsylvania, 6 in New York and 3 in New Jersey. So I am very happy & honored to be included. The Hope Horn Gallery is a beautiful venue at the University of Scranton.

"I been everywhere, man"

Well, Pennsylvania to Wisconsin to Minnesota and back! Mission accomplished - as stated in the previous post; 3150 miles of beautiful landscape (forgetting for a moment the 3 1/2 hours spent in 3mph traffic trying to get through/around Chicago! ), 12 paintings painted during the Door County Plein Air Festival, 4 sold during the exhibition, many new and interesting people met and some friends visited along the of them a bonsai enthusiast & expert. I was delighted with my ride, but I can't seem to get the overall average above 48mpg in my '07 Prius. I am definitely not complaining.

This is "Jeweler's Garden", the painting I made in Wisconsin during the Saturday morning two hour quick-paint and purchased at auction. It went to a good home in Chicago...and I didn't have to drive it there - whew!
