New Mural Goes Up in Rutland Vermont – Part 2

As a follow up to my last post about my work with Peruvian artist Persi Narvaez, I am happy to announce that we finished the mural in Rutland, Vermont last Thursday, August 9.  It took us a total of 23 days from start to finish – not bad for a two-man team! The official dedication […]

A New Beginning

Vernon Street Open Studios is next weekend, and I have been working hard to finish up a final piece before the event.  This will be my last appearance in Vernon Street, so it’s going to be bittersweet. One of the best things that has ever happened to me was landing a studio spot in Vernon […]

Another Fine Week

I was very happy that it decided to rain today.  For me, that meant that there was no outside work, and I was able to spend the whole day in the studio. I’ve been working on a series of 18″ x 24″ wood panels, and today I finished up most of the third one.  There […]

Observation and Collaboration

Due to some part-time work that I have been picking up, my recent posts and studio time have both been a little abbreviated.  The good news is that I am still able to slip in and still get pieces completed.  Today I finished up the second in a series of 18″ x 24″ wood panels that […]

Studio Report 2011 – Week 36

It’s been another productive week in the studio.  As the day temperatures become cooler, it becomes much easier to relax and paint.  This is my absolute favorite time of the year, and I am looking forward to the autumn and the winter. I have a couple days left of work on this panel, and then I […]

A New Month and A New Panel

Happy September 1st everyone!  There are only 4 short months left until the end of the year and I’ve got a lot of work to squeeze in before then.  So far, so good! Time was spent in the studio this week working on a new 18″ x 24″ wood panel.  As I have said before, […]

Wood and Water

Lately, I have developed a fondness for wood.  Some of my recent favorite pieces are the large 24″ x 48″ that I did some time ago.  I also just recently finished the rectangular table for my friend, and I have recently purchased a few 18″ x 24″ panels. There is something about the solidness of […]

Progression / Boston Scenery / In the Clouds

You may have seen my posts on my Facebook Page this week, but I spent most of the week in the studio working on a new wood panel.  I was happy with it until I put the two shades of blue in the middle.  Now it looks too busy.  I will have to stare at […]

A Very Dirty Boy

Last week I talked briefly about being out of the studio due to some extra work that I picked up.  The above photo shows me after a very long and dirty day in the sun digging tree stumps, removing brush and pulling weeds. I have always enjoyed physical work for more than one reason.  Even […]
