Lambertville Area Paintings

Gallery artists hang new paintings each month at Artists' Gallery and I usually don't try to have a theme for my own work, but last month I hung all winter paintings and had a lot of fun with that.  So this month I'm doing another theme:  Lambertville and the surrounding area - paintings done in town or fairly close by.

Here are a few of the paintings I'm showing for September:

The Lambertville Station restaurant - as always, I somehow manage to paint busy, bustling city scenes without getting a single person in my painting:

"At Lambertville Station"
8x10" oil on board
From the Lambertville Boat Club, looking across the Delaware at New Hope:

"Bucks County Playhouse"
8x10" oil on linen

This is the D&R Canal Bridge at the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead at the northern end of Lambertville, with the Rt 202 bridge in the background:

"D&R and 202"
11x14" oil on board

Thanks to the recent rains, the Delaware River is very high, but flood waters were nowhere near the gallery - we remain high and dry.  If you visit this weekend, Saturday from 4-8pm is the opening reception for Artists' Gallery's current show, "Freewheeling", featuring Rich Harrington and Charles Katzenbach.   For this show,  Rich and Chuck created artwork inspired the by the bicycle.   Cycling is my favorite way of seeing the countryside, so I can really appreciate this show - I hope you get a chance to see it too.
