My painting “Captive Lemon” has been awarded the Juror’s Choice Award at the Copley Society’s Winter Members’ Show. Not only that, but it was given pride of place, since it’s the first thing you see when you enter the gallery. The show runs through April 11, so if you’re in Boston’s Back Bay, please stop […]
For my last few paintings, I’ve tried to stick to a proper yet fully functional palette for the Ébauche, or first pass. This palette should consist of paints with low oil absorption (so as not to violate the fat-over-lean guideline), and be opaque to facilitate solid modeling of the objects. Ideally, the paints should also […]
I was out visiting a few galleries in the area this afternoon – including two that I haven’t seen before; Powers Gallery in Acton, MA and Renjeau Gallery in Natick, MA. Both great galleries and each carries work by friends and acquaintances of mine. I also stopped by J. Todd Galleries in Wellesley, MA which […]

“Tangerine and Shotglass” Oil on linen, 24 x 24 inches Price available on request. It’s done. I’m not super-jazzed about this frame, but it’s perfectly acceptable for the show. I was hoping to explore some kind of floating-frame option, but there just wasn’t time. Lucky I happened to have had a pair of these 24×24 […]

It will be included in the Salon catalog, which I believe will be available after the winners are announced next month. I’m honored, since the list of finalists includes some […]
