Catching up after a Hiatus

"Twilight by the Bay" Oil 30"x30"
After such a long delay in blogging, I actually forgot how to sign in and post here!  I'm finally getting some snapshots together of work done in winter & spring. I'll post more as I organize "works in progress" for an upcoming show at Pleiades Gallery in New York.

"Spring Breaks by the Lake”   Oil 30 x30

"Morning after the Heavy Snowfall" Charcoal
"Full Moon in the Forest" Charcoal 14"x18"
"Forest between Seasons" Charcoal
There's a story behind the little drawing below. 
On a visit last fall to the home of a couple of artist friends Paul and Lynn Digby, I enjoyed sitting in their garden on a cool evening and witnessed the practice of making charcoal on an open fire. The char is supposed to be good for harvest mulch... but it makes great drawing tools as well! 

"Char Fire"  Drawing with homemade charcoal
Here is a snapshot of My friends' garden char fire coupled with the resulting charcoal sticks which I took home and used in the drawing.
Here's a previously completed little painting... now in a frame. 
"Campfire"  Oil 19"x19"
