Up Close and Personal
Looking East, oil on canvas, 18x28
During August I will be showing landscape paintings at the State of the Art Gallery in Ithaca. I will be sharing the Gallery with Margy Nelson, and showing work from the past two years. There will be a collection of smaller canvases done outside, mostly familiar scenes from Ithaca and a few from places where I have traveled. I will have some larger works that took a longer period of time. Angel Wing Begonia was painted in my kitchen, looking out onto the front porch where the begonia was growing in a pot. Looking East was started from memory one day after seeing the pattern of shadows and light in my back garden early in the morning. The scenes from Taughannock and the Pennsylvania Woods were started and finished using photographs.
The show will be up July 30 to August 31, with an opening reception on August 1, from 5:00 tp 8:00 pm.
