This is a gray study I am working on now. This fall I have less time to paint since I have been going out on my photo shoots for my "In Their Studios" show (which is now scheduled for March 14 next year at West End Gallery in Corning). However, most Mondays I have been able to get to Dustin's class. I am working on improving my control over tone and color.
I added two new paintings to the archive on the right of the blog....Lemon in the Light, and Tomato Stack...

Most of my work-to-date has been street photography.
It can be seen at Pure Design on Market Street in Corning, New York.
It's our source for contemporary home and office design.
This week they kindly hosted a reception for me as part of the Market Street gallery hop.
Recently, this image sold.

This is the first painting I did this year after resuming painting by joining a class at 171 Cedar Arts Center. It's taught by a popular and very talented local artist, Dustin Boutwell.
Unlike other classes, we work on whatever we want to paint. It's part of Dustin's teaching style that brings us all forward.
In this case, Isabelle brought in her gardening things to create a still life. I painted them, because I like to garden, too.
It was challenging and interesting to paint the shininess of the metal trowel, the softness of the leather glove and to make it all look like it was sitting on the shelf.
Dustin has helped me develop my skills and my confidence. My classmates are also a wonderful source of information and inspiration. We share music, food, stories...

Next step is to figure out how to post photos of my work.
