Opening Reception: Saturday, August 6, 4-7 pm

This August, I'm teaming up with Carol Sanzalone for our 2nd show together at Artists' Gallery. This is my big show for the year and I hope you can stop by to see it.

I've always considered painting to be a natural extension of my exploration of the countryside. In the past couple of years I've renewed my interest in hiking and getting a bit more remote. In this show, my Inspiring Places are scenes from these hiking trips. Locations include the Delaware Water Gap, other North Jersey parks, and a bit further afield in the Catskills and Adirondack Mountains.

Gone are the barns and country roads that I paint so often, they're replaced by mountains in this show. But I have to confess there will be a couple of paintings with roads, I guess I just can't help myself. I'm still painting with oils in a style of traditional realism, it's only the locale that's changed.

Carol Sanzalone, my partner in this show, paints in watercolor and acrylic. With an interest in the graphic qualities of shadows and light, she takes a very creative approach to her subjects.
