SOLD - A cloudy bright day

When I was in graduate school taking photography classes, I had a professor who used to describe certain days as "cloudy bright. That's the kind of light that renders detail," he said. So I recently created this little 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel painting (from my mind) entitled, "Cloudy Bright," in honor of him. Enjoy!

Glen Helen Members' Show Also

I'm another Glen lover who has entered a few pieces into the Glen Helen Member's Show. This 5th annual exhibit, held in the Atrium Gallery of the lovely Glen Helen Building at 405 Corry Street in Yellow Springs, runs January 8 through January 30, 2011. The opening reception is Sunday, January 9, from 2 - 4 pm. We hope you will all come out and enjoy refreshments, view art, and help support the artists who help support the Glen!

Here's a peek at one of my pieces that I delivered today for possible inclusion in the show. It's a framed, 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel entitled, "Pines at Sunset."

Holiday Blues

Here's a common sight around the holidays - a lovely poinsettia plant just starting its decline. I always feel a little sorry for them and I try to "over Winter" them, usually to no avail. This one's a 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel titled "New Year's Poinsettia."

P.S. I just returned from an art residency in Poinsett State Park in South Carolina (5/11), where I learned that the park - and the plant - were both named after Dr. Joel Poinsett - the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico - who loved the plant and introduced it to the U.S. in the 1820s.
