Savannah Study #4

This is the fourth quick study I produced in my Savannah series.  It depicts the Confederate Memorial located in Forsyth Park.  I've always been fascinated with the light falling on this monument, and the resulting shadows.

Savannah Study #3 (and exhibit news)

I've been busy in the studio this month, completing two new canvases based on Southeast Raleigh imagery for the Richard B. Harrison Library show this fall (October-December). I visited the library a few weeks ago and I think I will have six paintings on display there.

I have some other good news to share. I am confirmed for a solo exhibit at the Litmus Gallery in Raleigh for next June 2014. I was also selected by the Wake County Public Library system as an artist to participate in their "Meet the Artist" program. I will have a small display in November at the Eva Perry Regional Library in Apex NC, and will give a talk/demonstration there on Saturday, November 16.

Then, on Friday I learned that my triptych of the Boylan Heights neighborhood was accepted into the Visual Art Exchange's 24th annual N.E.W. (Never Exhibited Works) Juried Show for September. This is a competitive show to get into, so I am especially pleased to have made the final cut.

Featured above is the third in my Savannah series started earlier this year.  It depicts a lovely storefront along Whitaker Street in the Historic District.
