Award of Excellence

Sunny Meadows, pictured above, is still showing at the Arts Club of Washington in the Washington Society of Landscape Painters' Centennial Exhibit.  
However, I entered it in an online exhibition sponsored by NOAPS (National Oil & Acrylic painter's Society).  I just learned that it received an Award of Excellence.  I am really tickled.
This painting is a composite from several plein air sketches done in Virginia, New York, and Maryland.  Hopefully the viewer can feel the sunshine and the warmth on the fields and distant mountains.  It is an oil on linen, 20 x 24.

Since I last posted my blog, I have become one of the artists at the Bucks County Gallery of Fine Arts in New Hope, PA.  I am very honored to be a part of this gallery of top-notch fine artists. I hope this will be a long and successful relationship.

When I knew I was going to take paintings to the gallery owner Howard Cooperman, I rummaged around in some old photos from my previous visit to New Hope, about ten years ago.  Often I have done paintings of doors and windows in historic areas and this particular building had caught my eye. I loved the way the shadows fell across the brick and bay window.  So I did this painting for Howard to review.  My dear departed cat Theodore is in the window checking out a bird on the sidewalk.  It was a lot of fun to paint and Howard said he loved it.
