Scenes From Bennington, Vermont and the Number 44

This past Tuesday, I managed to mark my 44th year.  Miss G and I spent the day in the historic town of Bennington, Vermont.  We spent lots of time at the local art center, which had a great collection of Native American art and also houses the Vermont Covered Bridge Museum.  A very strange combination, […]

Members’ Show Opening at the Southern Vermont Arts Center and a New Week in the Studio

Vermont is a state with unparalleled beauty, and it’s no surprise that most local artists chose to represent this beauty via landscapes and still life works.  Before moving up here, it never even crossed my mind that, I, as an abstract painter, would be the odd man out of the bunch.

I Love Vermont!

Miss G and I had a great trip up to Vermont last weekend.  We went up for two reasons: to look for a new place to live, and to help support the local economy.  It was foggy and rainy, and the fall foliage hadn’t quite turned yet, but it was good to visit. Vermont was […]

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 […]
