Studio work continues with the occasional outdoor scouting for ideas expanding the inspiration. Actually, I hope to get up to the Green River (next week) and into what I jokingly tell myself is the "deep woods" for some drawing and maybe a few photos and and some watercolors, too.

The Greenfield community welcomed The Greenfield Gallery to Main Street earlier this month and I was delighted when asked if some work could be shown as part of the inaugural exhibit. Thanks to Kate and Rachael for the opportunity and for organizing a wonderful exhibit. Their drive, energy and ideas are fully on display in the newly purposed space and I hope they have continued success.

working on two/comparisons

I feel like I am making progress with these two different as they can be from each other. Loose, tight; color and contrast growing and retreating; planning and acting with quick impulsive gestures; general impression with relaxed hand; Katz and Monet.  Where am I in all of this, I sometimes ask myself.  Moving toward a vision.
