Over and Under

If you are receiving this posting in email, you can always see the official blog version at

It’s a pretty awful time to have exhibitions, isn’t it? Well, as my grandma used to say, “Whatcha gonna do.” We just make the best of it and carry on.

I’m pleased to join fellow artist Michele Poirier Mozzone for a show at the Dryden Gallery which runs from November 7 through December 5, 2020.

It’s a real honor to show with Michele. I’ve admired her work for years.

You can see a short interview of the two of us here:

All the paintings are acrylic on panel, and, as always, painted on site. Yes, I was able to get tested and paint in Maine again this past July and October.

My Harvard animal portraits had their rescheduled showing September 20 through October 9, 2020. The “Hommages” exhibition at the Providence Art Club was a very special one for me. Those portraits were a challenge, a major achievement for me, and very personally meaningful. You can view the catalogue of all the paintings in the exhibit here (my work starts on page 77):

If you’d like to view a video “walk through,” just send me a request at and I’ll send you the file. It’s nice to see the fancy frames (not included in the catalog), and to see how terrific the paintings look when beautifully arranged and lit. Thank you to the Michael Rose and the gallery staff at the Providence Art Club for all their hard work.

Everybody please stay safe and healthy as we give thanks this year.
