"Bittersweet Door"
12" x 9"

I'm pleased to announce that my painting "Bittersweet Door" was juried into the Concord Art Association's Frances N. Roddy Open Competition. The exhibit will run from September 13th to October 14th.  As many of you know, when you enter a show you just never know what the outcome will be.  While I entered two pieces (the second entry is shown below) I felt that this one was definitely the stronger piece . . . but you still have no idea whether the jury will share your vision.  I'm grateful to be included at all.

So if you are in the area of Concord, MA or looking for a great historical day-trip with the kids, take a drive to Concord and while you're there check out the exhibit.  More information about the show can be found by visiting and additional information on what to do in Concord can be found by clicking here.

  3. Love both of them, but the bittersweet is my favorite. Love the light in it and bittersweet is just my most favorite Fall thing....wish we had it here in Florida. Congratulations on being juried into the show!
