Tobihanna Morning, 5" x 7" -Sold

A while back, an artist friend and I took an overnight trip through the Finger Lakes with the sole purpose of taking photo references for future paintings.

This painting is from the the grounds of the B&B where we stayed. The B&B doesn't seem to exist as such anymore but the memory of walking surrounded by fog is still very fresh and brings me peace.

Otisco Sunset , 5"x7" Sold

I've been working on small paintings for the upcoming Plowshares show. This one I'm planning on painting in a larger format for my solo show next year.

Very often I drive around scouting for locations to paint. As it's often the case, the perfect spot is right in the middle of the road, and I'm lucky if I get the chance to take a good photo for reference. I really felt lucky with this one.

Madison Gold, 8" x 16"

Madison is the our neighboring county to the east. This large corn field with Oneida Lake in the background caught my attention.

I had this prepared masonite board a friend had given me and thought it was just the right surface for this painting.
