And . . . May the most important of your dreams come true in 2008. (Let's not be greedy, now!)

While all the Christmas postings were going on this past week or so, work also was going on in the studio. This is the result of last week's studio time, a new work earmarked for the March show at my Annapolis gallery. The image is about 11" x 8".

Perhaps some sugar free cookies and 2% milk might be a good idea tonight?

I hope you have noticed a pattern developing here!

'Little Boy, Blue'

Today, I am posting a work that was completed last summer, one of the pieces that will be part of next summer's solo with the Woodson Museum, 'Unknown Bridges'. I want to thank my friend and a fine, fine artist, Matthew Hillier, for posting this image on his newly created blog (which I have linked to recently); a portrait really of his and his wife, Julia Rogers (also a most accomplished artist) young son, Paddy. I had a fun time last summer doing this work as a surprise for them, a sort of house warming gift for their recent move to the eastern shore of Maryland from the 'mainland'. I had not posted this work earlier as I did not want to spoil the surprise, but since Matt has uploaded the image to his blog, I thought it was time for me to post it here as well. The bridge is an old wooden bridge which is just up the road from their house and I understand a bridge that will soon be replaced by a new, concrete structure . . . how unfortunate that this old gem will disappear.

Memories of the Open House

About this time last week, things were in full swing at our Open House! I wanted to post some shots today of things the way they looked before red dots began to occur. You can certainly see some of my work as well as that of my friend Paula Waterman (oils and scratch boards). These images, shot by our good friend Karryl, whose sculpture can be seen throughout these images, show just a bit of the art and sculpture that was available. I have no doubt that we will do this again next year, but perhaps at a different time of year than right before Christmas.

Long hours yesterday and this morning and the new work is completed. Image size is 6 1/2" x 17".

As the snow falls here in Maryland this morning, posting yesterday's efforts.

A new work takes shape . . .

Monday, December 03, 2007

Our thanks to all who came to this year's Open House this past Saturday. It was a fun time had by all. Now, as far as my return to the studio goes, I am embarking on several months of continued work on the great bridge project for the Woodson showing next summer, as well as preparing new works for my half of a two person show at my Annapolis gallery in March. It proves to be a busy winter ahead!
