Studio Work

watercolors on paper - mounted on cradled board
8" x 8"

I've been skipping right along in the studio this week.  I started some new paintings, worked on some photos for future paintings, edited notecard designs, and finalized mounting some paintings.

This next one is going rather slowly.  It's a little larger for me, 18"x 24" - and I've been layering and layering, working on the lower mullions.  But I'm pleased with how they're coming along.

Finished and Accepted

"New Braintree Winter" - "July Geraniums" - Provincetown Path"

Lots going on in the studio these days . . .

I'm happy to announce that the three paintings I submitted to the Randy Higbee Gallery's "6 Inch Squared" show have been accepted. I'll be shipping those out today to have them framed and will have more details regarding how to purchase them in the weeks to come, so stay tuned.

I also finished up my painting, "Holiday Greetings."  It was tough to finish.  I was getting a little bored with all the final details and had to just push on.  Does that ever happen to you?

I will be making these into Christmas cards, along with "Nantucket Christmas." They are $2 per card with envelope, so if you're interested in ordering any, email me.  There is an example of what the Nantucket card will look like below and I will be posting the finished "Holiday Greetings" card soon, along with their inside sentiments.

I just designed the postcards for my first solo show.  It will be held at the Palmer Public Library throughout the month of December.  I hope you can join me on December 3rd for the opening reception!
