Special Happenings

I have won numerous awards over the past 40 years but one of the most special times was winning two First Place awards in one weekend. I won first place in the East Hampton Art Show on Saturday and then won first place in the Manchester Show on the very next day. Another special happening was winning the Esther Fay Award in the Connecticut Watercolor Show at the New Britain Museum of American Art. Shown at the left of this article was the winning painting "A Time For Reflection".

Painting What You Know

I am a real believer in the fact that your paintings are a reflection of you; who you are, your life experiences, and your knowledge of your subject and your medium. Being a realist I am more concerned with the quality and not the quantity of my paintings. I paint the places I've been and the things I know. The painting at the left of this article is a place that I pass every time I go to town. Since we spend a lot of time in Maine, I paint nearly as many Maine landscapes as there are Connecticut landscapes. I am an avid gardener. I do not believe you can paint a flower very convincingly if you do not know the structure of the flower you are painting. Painting many of my paintings "plein air"gives you a real feel for the place. Nearly all of my paintings have a story behind them. My still life paintings are all painted from arrangements I have set up. I have lived in the "country" my whole life and that is reflected in my paintings. I don't paint anything unless I am excited about capturing my subject for others to enjoy.

Different Technique

I took a workshop with Carol Reeves a few years ago using a technique where you do a red and orange underpainting and then wipe out the flowers. This piece I designed using that technique and my garden photos. You actually leave a great deal of the underpainting showing through the finished piece. This is the most recent piece I have painted using that technique.

There is nothing you want more for your jewelries than to have them safely kept and protected from damage or loss. That is why organizing your jewelry box is such an important task
