Here are two links to the two little 9 x 12 paintings I did last week in Newton. I positioned myself in the shade and caught a breeze, so I was pretty well off. I usually don’t paint at 12PM, I prefer the morning and evening light but with a street scene subject there are the strong shadows of buildings to play with. The paintings are there at Traillworks until August 14th along with the Contemporary Landscape exhibit. Newton has a quaint little Spring Street happening and Traillworks is a gem there.
And more press from the PRESS
In the past I have made my own sketchbooks small enough to fit in my pocket so I could doodle/sketch whereever I am. This was an opportunity to share my sketchbook joy with a larger audience. I love carving in the the nooks of time to work in these books and the freedom that they allow me to do whatever I want in them. I did not follow the theme too well. I thought is was ” Where secrets were told”, I also decided that secrets are not told, that if you tell them, they are not a secret. Check out all 34 pages of the Limited Edition Sketchbook I completed in April.
This book can be physically checked out of the Brooklyn Art Library.

The store itself will have access to Bertoni Gallery’s sculpture garden, as well as their lovely two acres of property.
