 ...The season is filled with artistic opportunity. 
I have completed many unfinished works and projects over the last few months.

"Sasha on Buck Mountain"

"Mary prays for Us"
The Adirondack Pastel Society held it's annual ADK National Pastel Exhibition. I was pleased to have one of paintings selected to be in the show. This painting was inspired by a comminssion done in 2016. 
"Mary Prays for Us" was inpired by a customer who won a painting.
His love for Mary was all I needed to create a painting just for him.  

Commission Yours Today! 
"Summer Day with Gramma"

"Sweet Reflections"

With the reflections on the lake and the charming image of Grandma and grandaughter, I could not resist capturing the moment.

My grandaughters are a great source for inpiration. My daughter took the picture and I saw it on facebook and was taken with her expression and the dramatic light. 

This family home on Friends Lake, was commissioned for a niece who got married on the property in August. The double hearts in the clouds represent the love the family shared that special day. 

Two large square dutchlap frames that I found while out and about, were the inspiration
for these two landscapes

"Summer Farm Sky"

"Washington County Summer" SOLD
Another commission this fall, by a customer looking for an original painting for her new apartment.
She came in looking at the art on the wall. After speaking to her I asked "How about a painting personal just for you that can bring back memories you cherish in your life" This is the result.....
"Hadlock Pond Memories"

~Summer News~

Grand Reopening a SUCCESS!
I'm so grateful for our local business organizations for their support.
 It's official, with a ribbon cutting celebration with friends, family and colleagues.  

Now back to the drawing board, office and work room.
Just completed my annual Double H Ranch Gala framing with donated memorabelia, distinctively framed for auction.

    Signed vintage photo of Paul Newman

The Double H Ranch, located in New York’s Adirondack Park, is a demonstration of the commitment and generosity of philanthropist Charles R. Wood and actor Paul Newman.  Since the Double H officially opened its doors on July 4, 1993, it has served over 60,000 children dealing with life-threatening illnesses from around the world. It was the second “Hole in the Wall Camp” in what has become a worldwide network of not-for-profit recreational and therapeutic experiences for children with serious illness.

Signed by the actors of "Scarface" 
Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer and more! 
My added design was to print a quote from the script and insert it into the framed piece. 

"The Hustler" below.
Signed pool ball with authenticated signatures

 Double H Ranch here in Lake Luzurne, is wonderful organization devoted to kids in need. Thanks to Charles R. Wood, Paul Newman and many more who generously donate to the camp.
