Fuel Storage, 9 x 12, oil on panel
I just got back from the Plein Air Easton event. It was a pretty big
deal with 58 painters from across the United States. Going in I didn't
think it would be my "cup of tea". Well to put it mildly it was an
amazing event. The caliber of work was extremely high and the artists were all very nice. It is a highly organized event and the folks
that run it are determined to make the artists feel special. They did
indeed. I won honorable mention for Fuel Storage. http://www.pleinaireaston.com/
The Eastern shore of Maryland is really all about the water. So why did I paint these tanks? I had just finished a painting of a boat when I noticed these tanks. Apparently not all water craft uses wind.
Full time artist living in Pittsburgh, PA. I've been a gravedigger, chicken catcher, landscaper, graphic designer, museum art installer, college instructor, and now, finally, I'm painting everyday, which is what I've been trying to do all along.
