More Paintings from New England

I made the most of the beautiful painting weather this fall. In addition to a second painting session in Acadia National Park, I spent a month painting in the Portsmouth, New Hampshire/Kittery, Maine area. It was a treat to have the gorgeous fall light to work with. It was also a real pleasure to get to know the Portsmouth/Kittery area better. There was plentiful inspiration for my painting, and I was able to join some wonderful artists for drawing sessions as well. (Thanks, everyone!)

The Banks Gallery in Portsmouth, NH is featuring some of my new work (and some sculptures by Sumner Winebaum) in an upcoming show. The exhibition runs from December 7, 2013 to January 4, 2014, and the Artist Reception is on Thursday, December 12 from 5 to 7pm. You’re invited! Please stop by if you get a chance.

It’s a good time to see my artwork. In addition to new paintings at all three galleries, there will be work at the 17th Annual Boston International Fine Art Show
It’s also time for the 109th Annual Little Pictures Show and Sale at the Providence Art Club!
I have some favorite drawings for sale there. Please visit! The Little Pictures Show runs through December 23.

I didn’t want to post paintings both here and on my website — please visit my website to see some of the 2013 New England paintings.
Here are some photos though. (And yes, I really did take that one of the eagle!)

Some more Acadia (as I’ve said, just can’t get enough…):

And Portsmouth is a beautiful town, very charming, very comfortable and friendly. It’s also close to some favorite coastal places, like Ogunquit and Prouts Neck and Portland, Maine.

Now it’s time to start planning some good painting opportunities for 2014. Stay tuned!
A big, sincere thanks to everyone who has helped me and supported my work. I really appreciate it.
