Shop til you drop

Newbury Street, Boston
18" x 24" x 2"
Oil on cradled board

I finished up this painting while working at The Art Gallery at Patriot Place last Friday night. It was rainy and miserable out so it was really quiet, allowing a lot of uninterrupted time to paint. I plan to enter this painting into the Fall Member show at the Foxboro Art Association. The show will be hanging at the gallery throughout the month of October with a reception on October 8 from 2-4pm. Stop by and see all the wonderful art produced by this talented group.

UPDATE ON : Can you help me title this painting?

City of Gold
8" x 8" x 1.5"
Oil with a palette knife of cradled board
SOLD at The Red Inn

I love coming up with titles for my paintings. As I am painting, it usually comes to me. But this time I need your help. Nothing is bubbling to the surface so I'd love to hear your suggestions.

By the way, this was painted from a photo I took on one of my recent visits to New York.

Thanks, good luck, and I look forward to your inspirational suggestions!

UPDATE 9.26.11 Wow-what a great list of suggested titles I received from everyone. I really appreciate them all and am going to put them all in the hopper to use for future paintings. I decided on City of Gold-this seemed to be a theme running throughout a lot of the suggestions.
Also-for Sherry, that little red building "dwarfed by the city that grew up around it" is the Merchant's House Museum on East Fourth Street. It looks like a really interesting place and I have to put it on the list for our next visit.

Newbury Street-off to a good start

I worked on this large painting (18" by 24") of Newbury Street, Boston while working at The Art Gallery at Patriot Place this weekend. I'm excited about how it's coming along so far and anxious to get back to it. I think it's interesting to see see paintings in progress, and I will post the completed painting soon!

Gardenias from the Garden

6" by 6"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled artist board

This was a quick painting done in class last week. It turned into a study of whites, complementary colors, and composition. Plus a little bit of me hoping summer doesn't go away too soon. Come into the garden, have a seat, relax, and enjoy nature with me.

Juried in at Zullo

Abstract Boston

Now Available at 13 Forest Gallery

City Blocks

I am excited because it was announced that these two paintings were juried into the 17th Annual Exhibition at Zullo Gallery in Medfield. I showed some work in this show last year and I think it is such a great venue. I feel honored to be part of it again. I drop them off this weekend and then the opening reception is Saturday, September 24 from 7-9pm. Last year it was packed so I'm looking forward to it and hoping for good weather because they have great outside deck.

Portofino-take me away!

Buon Viaggio
9" x 12"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled artist board

A friend of mine, who retired a few years ago, made it her goal to "see the world" and she is darn near close to doing just that. Every year she books cruises to exotic place, takes wonderful photos of her travels, and then creates a book out of each journey once she arrives back home. She showed me this photo of Portofino, Italy and I asked her if I could paint it because I fell in love with the colors and textures of the buildings. I have yet to see Portofino in person, but hope to do so one day.

Buon pomeriggio.

Herding Cats

Or should I say hoarding?

Starting today, and all next month at Custom Art Framing & Gallery 9, I was invited to participate in a show called Six Pack. There are 6 artists, each showing 6 paintings that are all 6" by 6". Clever, right? I submitted this assortment of kitty cat faces, but wait, is that a dog in there? How did that happen? Well, I guess there has to be a dog in every bunch. "One of these things is not like the others..."

I am pricing these cuties at $100 each. If you can't make it to the show in person, but are interested in purchasing one, you can contact Julie at Gallery 9 in Norwood by clicking here.

And these are all 100% allergy free.
