Changing Times

We got back from a month away from Asheville, and I'm feeling decidedly curmudgeonly. I was preparing this painting of a railroad tank by my studio for a Chamber of Commerce exhibit, only to discover that someone had painted over the graffitti with a cheesy mural. Then yesterday I noticed that they had removed the pay phone and sign from the side of the Montford Convenience Store. That payphone was a monument.

The world is turning just a little too fast.

Deer Isle Artists Association 12 x 12 Fundraiser

I'm dropping off five small paintings at the Deer Isle Artists Association gallery for a fundraiser show that opens Friday, August 7 and runs through August 20. There will be 63 artists participating in the show, and all works will sell for $144 each. It's a great opportunity to pick up works by local artists. This painting of the Clam Factory will be included among my paintings.

This is a recent painting I'm planning to show in Maine of a beautiful beach near Stonington. I've included photos of some earlier stages in the painting for comparison.

Rescues (2015)

We've been volunteering at the Asheville Humane Society, and I've been spending many afternoons doing 12" square studies of the dogs. Some I've given to adopters. I've done some as commissions in exchange for donations to the Humane Society. Others I've just enjoyed doing. I'm not quite sure where this is going, but dogs are extraordinarily familiar and yet entirely alien. And they have absolutely no idea how to pose for a camera.
