CANCELLED ~ LITITZ ART SHOW

Unfortunately the great Lititz Outdoor Fine Art Show scheduled for the 29th has been cancelled due to the pending weather. It takes a lot of work for the art association and the artists alike, to plan for an event like this, but sometimes  Mother Nature wins out.

If you had plans to visit me, I welcome you to make a studio visit by appointment or visit my website to view my 2017 Exhibit Schedule for other upcoming events.

Have a great weekend despite the weather!

CORRECTION / LITITZ FINE ART SHOW

WHAT WAS I THINKING . . .

My last email regarding the upcoming Lititz Fine Art Show
incorrectly announced that the exhibit was this weekend.
I had all intentions of exhibiting this Saturday,
but fortunately I had a moment of clarity and
realized that July 29th is NOT THIS Saturday but the following.

I’m sure everyone knew that,
and I would too after arriving at the show this Saturday
only to discover I was the only exhibiting artist there.
Guess I was just anxious to see everyone.  
So if you’re planning to attend,
the LITITZ FINE ART SHOW is Saturday, July 29th.
I apologize for the mix up and I hope to see you then!

LITITZ FINE ART SHOW
Saturday, July 29th
Lititz Springs Park
South Broad Street, Lititz, PA 17543

CAPTURING THE MAGIC


I have a massive amount of reference I use as inspiration for my paintings. But it’s very rare that I take a photo that I feel is worth painting in its entirety ~ I personally don’t see the point in just reproducing verbatim, what my lens has already captured. And even rarer, is a photo that is so perfectly composed and void of the extraneous distractions that “clutter” the landscape.

But this painting is an exception to my rule. Aside from using artistic license to make a few minor changes, this painting almost seems to be painting itself.  From the vantage point of my studio on the hill, I captured a magical moment in October when the sun was setting while illuminating a full moon on the rise. Given the majesty of the scene, I chose 18 x 44 as the size for this painting. When it is finished and if all goes well, I’m hoping I will at least come close to successfully re-creating Mother Nature’s beautiful gift.

UPCOMING EXHIBIT:
June 10th & 11th

“SPRING RIDGE SUNRISE”

I was inspired to paint “Spring Ridge Sunrise” after witnessing
bright bursts of light breaking through a heavy sky at dawn.

through even the smallest crack in the clouds.

I’ve enjoyed posting these works to you, my valued collectors.
