Honorable Mention at Rockport Art Association

My photograph won honorable mention in the current Contributors Show at Rockport Art Association.  It looks like an abstract artpiece.  In music it would be called a medley; this is a photo medley of memories.  You can see inside the store, the things in the store window, little lights, the reflections of cars, buildings, palm trees, balloons, and people.  Lots of colors and a nice composition with good balance probably holds some appeal along with the title, "Life Has It's Moments".  I hope you like it--let me know.  The show runs until March 20th.  Go to for hours.

I'm back..........

My adventures (not painting) in Europe can be read on this blog:
I spent January in Florida and attended many terrific art events.  Everything in Florida was perfect except for totaling our car and thankfully I didn't get hurt.  I visited with friends, walked many miles on beaches, stayed at a great place and met many new friends.
It was very nice to escape the Northeast winter for the month, but it's still snowing--6 more inches today!  Anyway, this week I've been re-reading the book, "Oil Painting Techniques and Materials" by Harold Speed, and I'm possibly enjoying it more this time than last time. 
I'm inspired anew by Carol Marine's new challenge (somewhat like the one Karen Juric did) and should be posting some paintings there (and here) soon.
