More reception fun!

I have two cameras that I have at
my shows. So here are more views
of this past weekend's reception for
my solo show at Frederick Cellars
from the 'other' camera!
I am now in the follow up stages with
thank yous to all who helped and attended.
As well as to some who expressed an interest in
having a painting from this show. I am
happy with the results and you can see from
the last photo that my wonderful assistant
Julie and I are very pleased indeed!

My art reception is tomorrow

I am really excited about this show. It is a solo show and is for the entire month of September.
I did a show at this winery last June and am so pleased to be having another one, which is of all new work for it.

Frederick Cellars ( is an excellent place to have an art show. The staff is wonderful and helpful and the space really lends itself to art looking good on the mostly gold walls.

I will report on how it goes and post photos of the day!

A small one

It's been a while since I was painting small panel
paintings. But here I am at it again and this one
is 5 x 7. I've been enjoying doing small ones again
and just started using a new brand of alkyd paint
which seem to be more opaque that the ones I
was using.

Show Hanging Day!

I have rarely tried to post
more than one or two photos
at a time, but I wanted to share
these with you of hanging my
current show at Frederick
Cellars winery, a wonderful place in Frederick, Maryland.

The first photo is of my assistant Julie and my friend
Linda who came to help me. Linda is our Art League's
gal who directs all those show hangings, so she knows
what she is doing in choosing and placing things that
look good together.

Here I am putting the labels on
a few paintings. The portrait in
this photo is a giclee (print) I had
made of a recent commission.

Linda and Julie getting the hook
on the painting wire!

Isn't this looking easy? They
do the work and I take the bow!
Well, I will take credit for doing
a LOT of paintings and new
work for this show. Do go to
if you want to know how to find this place!
