"Tea for One" Oil 8 x 10
It isn't easy keeping up these days! This is the morning after Thursday Nights LIVE! at Beaux Arts Gallery, and my first opportunity to post this new painting. I set up this simple still life and painted it on Ustream last Sunday. I recorded the broadcast, so you can view it HERE, if you missed it. There are other recordings available to watch as well.
Some of my artist friends joined me in the chat room which is available when I am painting live, so, as always, there is some disjointed conversation going on from my end......ya had to be there! If you would like to receive notices for future broadcasts, please subscribe in the upper right corner on this page. There are also options for my newsletter and blog updates. Just check your preferences.
Going into Fall, I am looking forward to trying some plein aire painting at Winthrop. This will be an adventure, as I have not tried this before. Right outside the gallery are endless possibilities... I will let you know how I progress!

There is a core group of artists and art lovers, Mike and myself included, working on preparations for the 4th Annual Winthrop Arts Festival, scheduled for March 24th & 25th. They are all amazing in their professionalism and networking skills. I am so happy they have varied talents and expertise on the business side of art and event planning. I keep saying it.....I just paint!
Imagine my delight when I opened my email on Friday and discovered Sandra Grenier had completed her incorporation of "Beaux" in our new Festival logo! How cool is that?! Thanks Bryant for selecting my artwork for this event promotion. I am thrilled! Thanks Sandra for working quickly to get it done!

"Shadow Ballet" Oil 7X12

I am having the MOST fun working with the wonderful people at Winthrop and enjoying Beaux Arts Gallery. After having been here for over three months, I have to say the "newness" has not worn off and I truly don't expect it ever will! There is so much going on that I could probably clone myself ten times and still not be able to accomplish all I would like with the "Dynamic Duo" who are visionaries.
Seriously, I am beginning to think artistically inclined people have an incurable sickness which is VERY CONTAGEOUS! The thing is...we feed off each other's energy, focus, and ideals, so it is an amazingly complex relationship, and yet simple, in that we only want to create beauty for beauty's sake. Simple, right?
If you want to follow along, as I try to keep up with this ever evolving community, subscribe to my newsletter. You can also "LIKE" Beaux Arts Gallery on Facebook and be automatically registered to win an original painting valued at over $500.00
There are wonders to be unleashed at Winthrop, and, although they have been at it for over 5 years,for me, this is only the beginning!
