A fun and productive day at this year’s Washington County Antique Fair
I've been drawing almost everyday. It's something I enjoy and can do within 30 minutes. Hopefully this leads to me routinely doing thumbnail sketches prior to painting.
It's a funny coincidence. Camino Real by Te-Amo is a Mexican handmade cigar company and has a shop located in Valley Stream, NY next to the town I grew up in. I bet my dad would have shopped there for his cigars. I bought this old box at a flea market this summer with the idea of painting the lid. Painting on objects is like tole painting. It makes a fun, useful box.

There is a quote by Henry Miller that a writer takes a path in order to become the path. It is the same with painters. To paint often and freely is to open oneself to all that we are and hope to become and in so doing fearlessly share ourselves with others.

My submission to the Saratoga Arts Annual Members Show.
Nov. 18th through Jan. 8th, 2021
Reception + Membership Special Nov. 20th 12pm-4pm
I recently attended the Woodstock School Online Live Classes. These paintings are my copies of demonstrations of glass by Karen O'Neil. Glass is abstract and challenging because there isn't much to see. It helps to have something that adds contrast to the glass or a couple of highlights that make it shine. It's not about painting the glass, but what's around and behind it that makes it interesting.
John Bokor is a painter who I just discovered and whose works makes me happy. He is an inspiration to me to paint more complex still lifes.
