This is one of the paintings I did on location early in the summer at Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia. I was satisfied with the results in the field, but back home I decided the focal area needed more work.
I'm happy to say that it will have a new home after the show at Manlius Library.

|North Truro Moon, 12x9 pastel on panel by Adriana Meiss|
I was asked by the Associated Artist of CNY if I would be interested in having a show at the Manlius Library. Of course I said yes as artists should take any good opportunity offered to them.
The first thing for me was to take stock of what I had and and come up with a title for the show. I decided on Landscapes: Near and Far because besides wanting to show some of my recent work done on location, I wanted as well to show work from other places that has been in my shelves for some time.
This meant a lot of framing and as paintings dictate what kind of frames they look best in, I had to order new ones and deal with some delays.
Anyway, yesterday the ladies of Associated Artist of CNY showed how efficiently they worked: the exhibit was set in a very short time and I must say that it looks great. North Truro Moon above, is one of the 22 pieces in the exhibit. Even while hanging work, I had the chance to talk with a nice lady from NJ who told me that some of my paintings reminded her so much of the area she lives in.
The reception in next Sun Oct 20th from 2-4. The show will last until Nov 16th. If you are in the area please stop by.

|Studio painting from a demo, 9x12 on panel|
The pic below shows how far I got with it. I had prepared my own masonite board but made the mistake of sanding the last layer of Colourfix primer which resulted on a board that was so smooth that could not hold much pastel. The result was a very loose painting but with enough information for me to try reproduce it back at home.

My thanks to those present at the demo and those of you reading this post!
