Over winter, in the spring, summer ahead!

Hi Meg,

It doesn't seem that long ago when we were bundling up and bracing for the cold. Somehow though, winter became a distant memory and spring turned into summer.

New paintings!

Not only did I complete a number of new paintings in the studio over the winter, but I've also been able to work on quite a few plein air pieces this spring too!

You can see many of my newest paintings in the gallery on my website:

Plein Air Painting: Here's my easel at Lilac Land in Pelham, where I painted alongside fellow members of the Amherst Plein Air Society. The mild temperatures and slow spring have made it possible to paint outside very early this year. What a gift it's been to carefully observe the changes in the landscape as it wakes up for another growing season.
Scholarship Award from CT Pastel Society:

In March I was honored and excited to be selected as the recipient of the Connecticut Pastel Society's first-ever Workshop Scholarship.
I traveled to Newport, Rhode Island for a three-day workshop with Master Pastelist and President of the International Association Of Pastel Societies, Liz Haywood-Sullivan. It was an amazing experience to learn from such a gifted painter and wonderful person!

"Night Study" in a National Show!

I'm very pleased to announce that for the second year in a row I've had a painting accepted into the national juried show "For Pastels Only" on Cape Cod.

"Night Study" the 9x12 painting pictured above, will be heading to the exhibition. If you're on the Cape, this is a wonderful show to see.

Summit Paint Out at Skinner State Park:

On June 18th from 1-3 p.m. I'll be one of the artist painting atop Mt. Holyoke at Skinner State Park. This plein air event is hosted by Kestrel Land Trust, who will also be leading a guided hike up the mountain for art and nature loving non-painters. Hike (or even drive) up the mountain and visit!

For more information or to register for the event as either a hiker or painter visit the Kestrel Land Trust website.
