Central Park Paint-Out

Thanks to Passport & Palette (an art education series on PBS) and many forwarded emails and phone calls, some 50 plein air painters showed up at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park today, including me.  We served as sort of a performance for the 1000s of Park visitors who were either bewildered by the presence of all the artists ("is this a class?") or took on inspecting each artist's work as a cultural obligation (albeit an enjoyable one). Luckily it turned out to be a beautiful day to spend in the Park. Here are my two paintings: Morning at Bethesda Terrace, Central Park

I'm going to add some figures into this scene to make it more realistic!

In the afternoon I worked on this view from a western path away from the Terrace:

Late Afternoon at Bethesda Fountain

En Plein Air - it's finally time!

For an outdoor painter, I'm considered a bit of a cold-weather wimp. Finally, tomorrow's forecast sounds inviting and I will venture up to the Marina in Riverside Park.  I am hugely motivated because I've been invited to participate in a group exhibition at the Windham Fine Arts Gallery in upstate NY, the theme being Hudson River painted "en plein air." And, as of this moment, I have no paintings that meet that description. Wish me luck!!

Spring Auction Alternative!

I decided to go ahead and create an alternative auction for one of the paintings rejected by the Salmagundi Club (see entry below) on eBay.  The auction for "Drizzly Morning Downtown" will start this Thursday, March 19, at noon EST, and end on Sunday, March 22, at noon EST. The starting bid is $250 just as it would have been at the Salmagundi. If this goes well, I may try another. Looks like I may be starting my own "Salon des Refusés"! drizzly_morning_downtown_150
