This just in. Historic foot-bridge in a new light.

The bridge in September fog_edited-1

Just finished this pastel. It’s based on sketches from this September but the experience of walking across in a morning fog  remains unchanged for over 60 years. It will be included in the show “Tate Icons” next Saturday at the Cumming /Preston house 2:00-6:00. Stop by!

La beauté soulage la douleur de la tragédie à Paris

Sharptop after November rain

I finished this pastel yesterday just before tragedy struck yesterday in Paris.

Hot off the drawing board…haunting ruins on a rainy summit

Saturday, I climbed to the summit of Burnt Mountain, 3,300 ft. in the rain. My companion, “Tanook”, a 100 pound Alaskan Malamute, having already run 5 miles with me, advised against it. I should have listened to him. Every November, I forget that the summit is a jumble of undergrowth and not a pleasant hike until January. Still, the mystical beauty of rich, deep greens and reds inspired this pastel I just finished today. It will be included in the show “Tate Icons” on November 28 at the Cumming/Preston house.

“Freedom Parkway”, 16″x20″ pastel on paper – for sale on November 14th Gallery opening

What greater complement can an artist get for his work! Thursday, a friend saw my latest post of my latest painting “Poplar in October”  and, within seconds, bought it via a Facebook message.

My friend exclaimed that the painting took her breath away and she had to have it. I’ve heard stories of people being moved to tears of spiritual bliss when viewing live art (doesn’t happen frequently with art directors and editors). Stay tuned for more new paintings for my solo show TATE ICONS on Saturday , November 28 at the Cumming/Preston house

Also, mark your calendars; a group show on November 14th, at Main Street Gallery in Acworth.
