Ribbon Won in GSAA Spring Art Show

I won the Popular Vote at the Greater Salem Artists Association Spring Show on April 9th.  Native American Dancer #2 was the winner.  We had 400 visitors at the show, and it was a great time for all.  Here is my set-up at this show.  You can see the winning painting here.

Mann’s Apple Orchard Show Update

The recent show at Mann’s Apple Orchard on June 12th and 13th went well.  This was the first time the Art Institute Group of the Merrimack Valley (AIG) has held a show in this venue.  Saturday was warm and muggy, but that didn’t stop the scores of attendees.

I set up on the front porch, adjacent to the tent that held just over 100 art works from the AIG artists.  I continued working on a new painting of a Red-winged Blackbird I photographed along the Pow-Wow River in Kingston, NH.  This painting is now 75% complete.

There was a steady flow of patrons stopping by to chat, ask questions and admire all of the terrific art work shown by these talented artists. I had four paintings in various stages of progress, and was able to show folks all of the steps, from canvas preparation to finished painting, using the “story boards” with progressive photos of the work.

I won a third place ribbon for September Beets and received many wonderful comments about the painting Apples in Sunshine from the visitors.   Jim Collins painted a pair of swans and won Best in Show and the Popular Vote for his beautiful work.  Congratulations, Jim.

Sunday was cool and damp with a slightly smaller attendance.  The folks at Mann’s Apple Orchard provided a great venue, and were extremely helpful with the arrangements and support for the first Art in the Orchard show.  Thanks to all for coming to the show.

Study of Cilantro Peppers

I just completed an 8 x 10 study of Cilantro Peppers.  This will be among the paintings being raffled off at the Mann’s Apple Orchard Show this coming weekend.  See Events page for details.

Greater Salem Artists Association Spring Art Show

This is a photo of me working at the Greater Salem Artists Association 24th Annual show at the Woodbury School.  I won a 3rd place ribbon for Apples in Sunshine, and the painting also won a ribbon for “People’s Choice”.  A good day overall!

I had a constant stream of folks at my display, and I ended up painting on my demonstration piece for about 30 minutes.  I spent the rest of the day interacting with fellow artists and visitors to the show.  I want to thank all of you for coming to the show, and for your generous support.

My next show will be held by the Art Institute Group of the Merrimack Valley and will be held on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13th at Mann Orchards in Methuen, MA.  I hope you all can make this show.  More information to follow.
