Black Dirt - and 'Rough at Hand'

Black Dirt
Oil on canvas, 10x20
Please contact me for price and shipping/delivery information 

Above, a happy corner of the Wallkill River School, with paintings from "Rough at Hand," my show that is there through February. You can see "Black Dirt" on the left-hand wall.

Early buyers bought three of the four small paintings I had hanging on the left-hand wall. Luckily, I had more paintings with me than I could easily hang, so three new ones took the place of the three that sold. There are joys great and small to productivity, and this is one of them! 

Top, "Christmas Eve." Bottom, "Tuscany."

My friend Michael Piotrowski, a wonderful painter, who will be showing at the gallery in April.

From left, Gittel Evangelist, me, Gene Bove (fabulous artist, showing in March) and Ellen Levine. Gittel and Ellen, bless them, braved the awful weather to come to the opening reception.

I was sad for a while that so few people came, but the weather was truly horrible, and I'd have been bereft if someone had gotten hurt, coming to my reception. The slight attendance (the gang pictured here, and the Pettes) meant I did have time to talk with everyone who attended - a rarity at openings, usually! 

Here's what you see when you enter the gallery showing my work in "Rough at Hand." On the mantle is "Scottish Highlanders," 48x60. Bottom is "The Watcher," which is 30x40, I believe.
You can just see the framed photo of my mother on the mantle. Whenever possible, I bring her photo to the shows and leave her to watch over things while I am gone. 

Upper, facing, is "Rusty Refrigerator." Lower, "Into the Sunset." 

"On the Way to Warwick."
