The beauty of the exhibition lies in the fact that there are no restrictions on the subject matter or style of the artwork. Artists are free to explore and express their unique vision in whatever way they choose. This means that visitors to the exhibition can expect to see a wide variety of works that reflect the diversity of artistic expression.
Ultimately, the "In View of the Artist Annual Juried Exhibition" celebrates the power of art to capture and communicate the individual perspective of the artist."
So pleased that "Cincy, Saving Me" has been juried into this exhibition.
Our dog Buddy is getting a little older and even thou he loves his walks, he sometimes needs a rest break. So instead of letting him decide where to lay down (which could be halfway across a bridge or a road), I now choose a spot that gives me a place to sit. Buddy gets a rest and I get to sketch. Sketches are quick, done in a micron pen and water brush filled with distilled water and india ink, resulting in a nice grey tone.

Played a little golf over the Christmas break. A long drive to South Carolina, but missed the nasty weather here in Ontario, CA. Colder than normal temperatures in Myrtle Beach, but played 5 rounds of golf. The course I liked the best was World Tour Golf Links. After the round, while enjoying a Yuengling Traditional Lager, I sketched the 18 holes in my sketchbook with Micron pen and graphite.

I am pleased to say that the Woodstock Art Gallery Gift Shop, now carries my artwork and art cards. Last Friday, I delivered nine pieces of artwork, some framed, some matted plus 8 of my greeting cards. Framed pieces include the architectural illustrations: Woodstock Streetscape with Capitol Theatre, Theatre Woodstock, and Woodstock Market. All these pieces of art were completed in 2022. And working on some more. And Woodstock architectural greeting cards to come.
The Woodstock Art Gallery Gift Shop features unique items crafted by local artists (and your purchase supports both artists and programming at the Gallery), including pottery, glass, jewellery, fabric arts, paintings, prints, art cards and more. If you become a member of the Woodstock Art Gallery you receive a 10% discount.
I have been invited to show 3 pieces of my golf course artwork at a plein air exhibition at Westland Gallery. The French term plein air means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pictures out of doors. My artworks are not really paintings, but rather charcoal drawings that were completed on location. The more interesting part is that I made the charcoal from trees on that very golf course.
