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.

I am pleased to announce “Winter Pavilion #4” is on the way to the American Impressionist Society’s national juried exhibition 2014. Abend Gallery in Denver CO is the host this year. It is an honor to participate again this year with what I consider to be my favorite piece in some time.
What makes it so special to me? “Winter Pavilion #4″ is a plein air painting done over two session last winter at 24″x20” in size. I would say all of the above plus the impact of the painting in person always “gives back” the light effect of being there. That is one of my main goals with any painting and this one really shines if I say so myself.
If you can get to Abend Gallery to see it along with all the other, I am sure, spectacular work you won’t be disappointed.
I have to say, I am very pleased to be working a bit larger outdoors. Winter Pavilion #4, 24″x20″ took two sessions. Pavilion #4 is something I see on a regular basis. Erin and I walk Sargent at a local park not far from our home and this pavilion happens to be prominently located in one of the Sarge’s favorite spots. Needless, to say we walk this area frequently! For me, this is a special place as a source of fond family memories. This winter Sargent (our chocolate lab) frolicked off-leash and unabated meeting new friends both canine and human. He just turned one last month and the pure unadulterated joy he displays while discovering the “play” possibilities of snow at pavilion #4 is contagious.
