A few favorites from this year.

         A year goes by, 12 months, 365 days, and then another. Marking time on this planet one minute and then the next. Each is capable of beauty and transcendence, none of them can be repeated. What you see here are a few of those moments, in paint.    Most are available.  Thanks for reading my blog, and happy new year!

Finished November Paintings......

     We're just after solstice and before Christmas, it's snowing out.  I usually have a holiday greeting, with some fire and a cheer, this year I'll just say: I hope all the best for everyone who's reading this, that I'm thankful for all that has come to pass in this year and I remain hopeful for the new year.  Each day (or one of two!) I'm able to go into the world and paint is a great day, in every way, counting my blessings would use up all the numbers, so here are the paintings from November, each contains a little of my love of the world, and I hope that's enough, I hope you have some of this love for yourself and your family to enjoy and share, Merry Christmas!

     November brought me two trips to New York City, visiting and driving my daughter to college, so I got to paint there and loved it! I also did my first "demo" for the Colonie Art League (near Albany NY) where I painted from a small plein-air painting of the Buskirk's bridge, in addition to wandering around the area to find things to paint, here they are:

    Thanks for reading my blog!  It's been a while, but it is essentially my web-site where I publish finished paintings by the month.  Most are available, and questions and comments are always welcome. Feel free to follow me on twitter or Facebook, I now publish a few photos from each painting/location, so there is always plenty to see.
