New Work

Keuka Lake
Around the Bend
 "Early Spring" was completed yesterday (see below).  For those of you familiar with Brunswick, it's a shot of the Crystal Spring Farm in early spring.  The ewes were very close to lambing, snow was still on the ground and the sky was crystal blue clear.  Working in the panorama format is very comfortable for me because as someone who wears glasses, that's pretty much the normal range of vision.  I also recently completed two works for friends outside Maine - an oil painting of "Keuka Lake" in upstate NY and a mixed media (oil, acrylic, digital image transfer using matte medium) "Around the Bend" from Yorklyn Delaware.  Having just finished a 3 month drawing class with Kathie Boldt, an excellent, excellent instructor, I am resolved for 2011 to feature more plein air and from-life work to balance out the work I have been doing from photo.  Cheers!!!

Your new work is absolutely WONDERFUL! I'm very interested in finding out more about your mixed media piece, "Around the Bend". I also think those panoramas are your forte'. Have a fun filled Christmas trip.
