I had a nice visit to the Brandywine Museum yesterday, followed by a painting session along the muddy creek. I think I was inspired after seeing the Andrew Wyeth paintings - his strong light/dark contrasts and muted colors.
It was a bitter cold night last night, but I am happy I braved the weather to attend Carlisle Arts Center's opening of the "Yellow" show. I am honored that juror and Messiah College Art Department Chair Brenton Good chose my painting for First Place!
I painted this en plein air in a friend's garden on a much warmer day.
The "Yellow" show will be on display through March 12.
Two of my most recent pieces, painted in the week following snowstorm "Jonas" which dumped a record breaking 29" of snow on our area. Now, one week later, most of this snow has melted so I am happy that I was able to capture it.
These paintings are now available at Art & Soul Gallery, Lemoyne. Art & Soul is located above the West Shore Farmer's Market and is open on Friday and Saturday or by appointment.
