This scene is one that I see most mornings. Woodland, farmland, silent deer and fawns, turkeys complaining with jakes and jennys trailing, chattering squirrels in the trees. Birches, willows, a pond with frogs and lily pads. You would be able to see all of this too but you won't be able to see the ghosts. Only I can see them. Behind the birches is the memory of a favorite tree that had to come down last year. And off in the upper right corner are Chester and Elmer, a horse and a pony, also lost but still running.
This is my newest piece. “Ghost Story,” acrylic on board, 24” x 18”.
I have a bit of news. I have a painting, “Vultures at High Falls,” in the annual “Radius 50” show at the Woodstock Museum. The show features what the jurors feel is the best work from within the 50 mile radius surrounding the Museum. Twenty nine artists are represented. The opening reception started with a gallery walk where half a dozen of the artists in the show (Not me. Stage fright.) spoke briefly about their work. I’m thrilled to be a part of this interesting, talented group. If you happen to be in the area the show runs through the end of September at the Woodstock Artists Association Museum on Tinker Street.
I'm having a big sale in my shop. 25% off any purchase. The sale will run from September 13 through September 17. It includes this painting, "Ghost Story.”
"Ghost Story," acrylic on board, 24" x 18", $2200.00.
