December Works

This has been a month of preparations for my January opening at the Foundry Gallery at Dupont Circle in DC. I repainted much of this "Waking" piece. I also have been working on new pieces for my March show at the Octavia Art Gallery on Magazine Street in New Orleans. I was delighted to have five pieces in the Art for a Better World exhibit in Miami Beach, a satellite event of the Art Basel scene. Many thanks to those of you who bought pieces there and who bought pieces from me directly recently.

Waking (30 X 40") oil on canvas

On Deck (16 X 20") oil on canvas

Christmas Tree with Piping (22 X 28") oil on canvas

Bayou Royale (40 X 30")

Below are two small pieces from August which I neglected to post. Revisiting with them and some other pieces that were tucked away, I'm resolving to stop painting from photos. Working from life is infinitely more enjoyable and productive.

Johns Brook Rendezvous (10 X 10")

Johns Brook Alterpiece (9 X 12")

Given that winter is fast moving in and I won't be painting outside much for a few months, I'm lining up a model to pose for me this winter. Look for that series to start emerging in February. This winter would also be a good time to line up portrait commissons.
