Yes, I am still alive. We've been camping for about 3 weeks mainly at Fort DeSoto park in St Petersburg, Florida. I'm working on a system to stay connected and continue to sell my art from the road but it's a bit complicated without a fancy cell phone. Perhaps I will have to give in. My pastel paintings can still be purchased through Daily Painters but shipping will take a bit longer than my usual 3 days.
"Warm Water" was painted at Myrtle Beach State Park on our way south.
I've been taking a daily walk out into the dunes this week with a limited pastel palette and a set time limit of about an hour to create a study. The sand was warm on my bare feet and I was blocked from the breeze by a large dune. This path seems to be a favorite of deer, coyotes and fox (at least at this quieter time of the year). There were still a few dried beach plums around that I decided to save for the wildlife. An extreme high tide gave me reason to pastel quickly before the water view was gone.
Challenged myself to travel light with only a few NuPastels. I never use white or black but did need to on this piece to get the values. Nice to not have the weight of my usual wooden box while hiking through the dunes. Available through my Daily Painters Gallery.
Always a favorite to paint by Provincetown artists over the years the libraries bell tower catches the strong, warm light of sunset in September. This will be in the group show at Julie Heller East, "Provincetown Rooftops" opens this Friday. My show closes on Thursday.
I have a two person show coming up on September 19th, at Julie Heller East Gallery in Provincetown, MA. This is a little taste of some of my new work that will be in the show. I know, the new work looks like the old work but I do just love painting boat reflections!
Brought this piece down to PAAM for the 12x12 Exhibit. First day to bid is Friday, July 12th and opening reception is July 19th at 8:00pm. Bidding starts at just $125 and can be done in person or by phone 508-487-1750.
This is what happens when there is a week of cold, rainy weather. The golds and midnight blues come out. Or should I say California golds and Pacific blues as this piece is on its way to Carmel-by-the-Sea, California to Edward Montgomery Fine Art.
The Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill will host an art exhibition of work created by artists who participated in the Outer Cape Artist in Residence Consortium residency at the Margo-Gelb dune shack. The OCARC Art Exhibition will take place from Tuesday, June 13th - 28th at the Truro Center for the Arts in the Main Gallery. Wine and Cheese will be served at a public reception on Thursday, June 20 from 4 to 6 pm. This is my little piece for the show.
Heading out of Minnesota, tomorrow. Taking our time, camping at State parks on the way home. It you purchase my art through Daily Painters, it will not be shipped until about May 20th. Thank you for your patience!
I used a yellow dry pastel underpainting for this piece and kept a light touch to allow the specks of yellow to shine through. This is a new dory moored in the West End of Provincetown harbor. I love this old style of boat that helps me to imagine what this historic fishing village was like long ago.
