I was interviewed the other day by reporter Jessica Spies from the Messenger Post Newspapers for an article about the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters winter show which is on display at Barnes and Noble in Pittsford Plaza during the month of January. She interviewed several members of the group who live in the town of Greece about the experience of painting outdoors. I enjoy talking about it because it is something that I really love to do and I enjoy sharing that experience with the rest of the world. Hopefully that feeling will come across in the article whether I am quoted or not. I hope that if you happen to see the Greece Post on a news stand next week that you'll pick up a copy. By the, stop in to Barnes and Noble to see the show if you are in the Pittsford Plaza area during the month of January. Here's the link to the article and the one for the article which ran in the Canandaigua Post. Copy and paste them into your browser. There's a picture of me turning in one of my paintings!
This was painted along one of the lakes in Durand Eastman Park on an unusually warm day in early November. Because the hills surrounding the lake blocked the breeze, the water was completely still, reflecting the side of the hill which was in the sun. As the morning passed, the sun eventually burned off the haze which hung in the air. SOLD
