|That time of year when my work goes on display for the|
month of December.
|The library is perfect for displaying my work. It has the gallery|
in the main hall entrance where people can see the work.
Everyone is so kind and it is always wonderful get feedback about
|This year I had a variety of sizes. Generally I work small|
when doing plein air. But it's alway nice to show my larger pieces.
|I also like the odd formats, the atmospheric look of the sky is one|
of my favorite subjects to paint.
|These two larger pieces were done a few years ago, I don't show the|
that often. Thought they needed an airing.
|The tea pot is one of my favorites, it was done last year when I took|
on the 30 day challenge.
The larger piece is a 18x24 of Sayville marsh, another favorite place
to paint on location
|The smaller pieces, the smallest one on the bottom is a watercolor|
that took the longest to paint. Using the old masters technique of
coating the paper with a gloss medium allowing the erasable surface
of the paper. It took forever to paint.
|This was of Hoyt Farm on the Island. Loved the mud and frozen|
puddle , wanted to capture that on canvas.
