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.

This Saturday 7/25/15 I will attend an opening for new work at Gallery 3040 in Old Forge NY. All are welcome, it should be a fun night! The hours are from 5-7 pm. There are several new plein air works in larger formats from 16×20″ up to 20×24″. Additionally, there will be a rare opportunity to peruse various smaller studies from over the years. These will be available for purchase unframed. As I mentioned, this will be a fun night hope to see you there!
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.
Here’s a coda to my previous blog post DS al Fine. Sorry couldn’t help but use another musical reference…
My new friend Sandra Reilly was kind, and brave, enough to stop mid-blizzard and say hello the day I began Kirkland in Winter. She was also very kind to post this photo of me, my gear, and the beginning of my frozen composition on FB.
I’ll conclude with a final musical quote from Bach , “Soli Deo Gloria”!
