Wayne Plein Air Festival

Wayne 2015

Wayne 2015

I’m headed to Wayne! The Wayne Plein Air Festival is held in wonderful Wayne PA just outside Philadelphia. Last year was an excellent exhibition with Juror Ray Roberts graciously awarding my work “Waterwheel” an Honorable Mention.

I am looking forward to seeing old painting friends and making new ones. Most of all, I plan to give my best and by God’s grace produce even better work this year.

Stanley Theater Autumn

The Stanley Autumn 24x20" plein air

The Stanley Autumn 24×20″ plein air

The Stanley is an iconic theater here in upstate NY. The interior is more amazing than the exterior shown here. This 24×20″ was painted over two sessions plein air and was joy to paint. I love watching the city come to life in the morning. In this case, capturing the employee setting up tables for the days business and watching vehicles scurry by all under the stalwart Stanley theater marquee. “The Stanley Autumn” is part of the exhibition at Gallery 3040 in Old Forge, NY.
