I’ll be doing painting demonstrations, participating in panel discussions, and this Thursday afternoon, presenting, “Painting Katrina – documenting plein air a New Orleans ravaged by the forces of nature.” Here’s a link to the event’s website: yallcomepaint.com
We’ll try it out this first week and make a course correction if it doesn’t work out.
Abita Plein Air will open this Friday April 8th and run only that weekend. It’s a group show with 20 regional artists presenting plein air landscape paintings executed in St Tammany Parish within the last 3 months. The opening is Friday April 8th, 6 to 9pm at the large Bandstand/Gazebo next to the Trailhead Museum in Abita Springs. It will be on view Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.
The Southeast Louisiana Landscape, curated by John Kemp will open at the St. Tammany Art Association, 320 N. Columbia Street, Covington LA 70433 This Saturday April 9th 6 to 9pm. Artists exhibited will be included in Kemp’s book about Louisiana Landscape painting to be released this fall.
There’s a very nice grouping of my paintings hung at the Cole Pratt Gallery this month but they’re easy to miss.. They’re on the far back hallway leading to the bathroom.
I’ve posted the two paintings I submitted, including the piece that won Best of Show under the New Works category of Paintings: https://www.philsandusky.com/new-work/ . Shadows on the Teche Plein Air is a yearly event which benefits the national historic Shadows on the Teche house and museum: http://shadowsontheteche.org/
Of particular interest are several paintings I’ve recently done of the Treme area. I haven’t painted there in almost 20 years. These new paintings will be denoted by “Treme” in the first part of a given painting’s title in the caption.
Current location of my Thursday morning class is the intersection of Burgundy and Mandeville in the Marigny
First, I’m releasing a collection of prints of paintings I’ve done in Jacksonville, Florida – my hometown – during my frequent visits there. Also I’m releasing a second series of prints of my New Orleans paintings with a bit emphasizing a bit different subject matter than the first. As well as having paintings of New Orleans neighborhoods, it will focus a bit more waterways and maritime scenes in the region. Both collections of prints can be purchased on this website along with my previous print series.
I’ve just added some images of new paintings in both the “New Works” and “Other Regions” Categories.
