Art Makes Life at the Butler

I'm very pleased to announce that my portrait of Marina Dieul, Art Makes Life, was selected for inclusion in the 75th Midyear Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art.

If you haven't been to the Butler, it's worth a trip to Youngstown, Ohio to see this small gem of a museum full of truly magnificent examples of work by American artists of all eras of this country's history. The Midyear show is a lot of fun to see. There will be 100 works on display, selected from over 1,000 entries. You might see some artists you know there. Last year at the opening reception I met Jeff Gola, Stanka Kordic and Leslie Adams, all of whom had work in the show.

The Butler Institute of American Art
524 Wick Avenue, Youngstown, Ohio
Meet the Artists Reception and Awards Ceremony, Sunday, June 26th, noon to 3 p.m.
Show Dates: June 26th--August 28th, 2011

Color, Light and Shadow Workshop Update

Color study in warm light

Color study in cool light

There are still places available in my Studio Incamminati workshop, June 20-24.

Do you follow the maxim, "Paint what you see?" Do you ever stop and wonder WHY you see certain colors in the various planes of the face, or objects, or whatever you are painting? Understanding how the light generates color, even in the shadows, takes the mystery and struggle out of color mixing.

Call 215-592-7910 if you need information or you would like to register for this 5-day workshop.
