The blizzard and 3 new paintings

Maple tree at Thorndike Dog Park

I took this picture last weekend after we had a few inches of snow and there was no breeze.  It was a beautiful and serene morning until the pups started to arrive.  They had a blast!
We're socked in, locked down and travel banned today with the blizzard.  I'm taking advantage of the time to post here, bake a no-knead whole wheat sour dough bread and some gingerbread for the pot luck tonight with my buddies on the first and second floor of my building.  

Here are 3 paintings-2 from the sketches I posted in Nov.  I'm thinking of going even bigger, maybe on paper.

Spy Pond show

Happy New Year to all!  I'm excited to be having a show of the project I undertook for a year of painting and blogging my explorations and experiences at Spy Pond in Arlington MA.   I'll hang the show on Monday Jan 5 and the opening reception is Thursday Jan 8 5:30-7.   Also I now have a studio at 6 Vernon St. in Somerville, MA. which I share with my friend and fellow artist Martha Slocum.  We participated in Vernon St. Open Studios in December.  It's wonderful to have a large space to both make art in and be able to view it properly.  Of course there's also the benefit of being surrounded by other artists.  Hope you can stop by the show or catch the open studios in the spring.
Here's the front and back of the postcard for the Spy Pond show.
