I'm excited to be participating in this year's Lansdowne Arts Festival, taking place Friday, September 5th - Sunday September 7th at the Twentieth Century Club in Lansdowne, PA.  I will have a variety of smaller paintings with me, and a few larger ones, most of landscapes done in the past few years in Philly, Maine and the Adirondacks.  Many artists and musicians will be at this family-friendly event.  Friday's preview evening is a ticketed fundraiser.  Saturday and Sunday are free and open to the public.  Located at: 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue, Landsowne, PA.  Additional details may be found here: Lansdowne Arts Festival.

Spring Painting

Motivated by the first blooming flowers after a long winter, it was great to get outside and work without three jackets on.  

Forsythia, 12 x 12", oil on canvas

As I was finishing this up, I observed someone talking on their cell phone; I liked how his belly matched the sky.

View of Carpenter's Woods, 10 x 10", oil on canvas

Here, I was as much intrigued by the first hints of spring in the foreground as I was by the view of Carpenter's Woods in the background. 

Painting Along Cobb's Creek, 16 x 20", oil on linen

It was fun to paint not only a beautiful spot along Cobb's Creek, but to include my friend, painter Alexandra Tyng, in the piece.
