For the past two months I have been working on three commissioned oil portraits for the Glatfelter Insurance Group. It was quite an undertaking in a short amount of time. Long rainy days and good books on cd kept me working diligently to complete the pieces which I will post as soon as the third one is finished. (And I figure out how to navigate this new website!)
In the midst of all that painting I was very happy to learn that a small silverpoint drawing has been accepted in the Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2016 exhibit. 1800 entries were pared down to 124 pieces and 118 artists in the show which opens on June 26th. This show is always beautifully presented and hung in the State Museum of Pennsylvania. The curators work not only to display each piece to its best advantage but also to move your eye through the exhibit as a whole utilizing the individual pieces in concert with each other. It is an honor to be accepted.
My daughter Kara has concluded her studies at York College of Pennsylvania in fine arts and has been accepted in the summer program at Mt. Gretna School of Art. This intensive six week program in painting is a wonderful step on the road to being a full time artist. So proud of her!!
The new website... stay tuned for changes. I will be adding a years worth of new work and do much better at updating. Promise!!
