I have been showing various paintings at the wonderful industrial building at 1255 University Avenue in Rochester, NY. I change the paintings out occasionally, except for the purchased machine paintings that have a home in the halls of 1255 lofts, the residential side of the building. There is a great wine bar in the building as well so stop by Living Roots and then check out my art in the building halls.
Interested in learning or honing watercolor techniques? I'll be teaching a workshop August 16 & 17 on beautiful Keuka Lake. Sunny Point is an artist's retreat belonging to the Arts Center of Yates County. The workshop facility looks out on the lake and is a wonderful relaxed setting. The focus will be learning about painting in layers to achieve inner glow and more volume than a single pass of paint. It is open to beginners through intermediate artists. $140 members, $168 not-yet-members. Please register at at The Arts Center of Yates County at 315-536-8226.

Orazio Salati Gallery Solo Show
I currently have a solo show at the beautiful Orazio Salati Gallery in Binghamton, NY, through May. Gallery Hours: Saturdays 11 - 3 PM and by appointment.
Although most of my paintings are connected with nature, I am also drawn to paint old machines. I'm fascinated by the fact that these huge metal machines are no longer of use and yet the soft, seemingly-fragile, natural world seems to find a way to continue on. In this show I have just 4 larger works of different machines—mining, logging, a steam engine from a train and a huge machine factory pulley — contrasted with many smaller florals and other growing things. Every year, without fail, they find a way to grow again.
