Since returning from the Wekiva Paint Out it has been painting non-stop to complete the new pieces I am taking to the International Art Expo in New York next week.


I leave tomorrow and the show opens on Thursday at the Pier 94 Exhibit Center in New York City. I would love to see any that read this post at the Show. My booth is 518 and if you come, please stop by to say hello. The painting below is one of the new ones I just completed for the show but I'm still painting today!!!

With this post I am uploading my first painting "Bailey's Bluff", a 6" x 10" image of the view from my studio that I see each day. I've painted this view many times as it is constantly changing with the light and tidal action.

This is a new endeavor for me to display my newly created paintings. My personal challenge in 2010 is to publish one per week and share them with those who would like to see them and follow this blog. Some will be for sale and there will be a link to purchase the painting through my Website Shopping Cart if you are interested.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have in painting them.
