This July, I'm teaming up with Beatrice Bork for our 3rd show together at Artists' Gallery. Beatrice and I have very different approaches to painting but I think our work compliments each other's nicely. Bea is an award winning watercolorist and wildlife artist with a particular focus on painting birds. I continue to explore the landscape through my oil paintings. Though our journeys take us different places, we both find our inspiration in the natural world.

"Winter at Ghost Lake"
At Jenny Jump State Forest near Blairstown, NJ
11x14" oil on linen on board

In this show, the mountains and forests of northern New Jersey have been my source of inspiration. With a renewed interest in hiking, I've been busy exploring and discovering parks nearby that I never knew existed. My paintings in this show are entirely from places I've found on these hikes over the past year or so - scenes ranging from the Sourland Mountain near my home, to Stokes State Forest in north Jersey, and many points in between.

"From Wyanokie Hi Point"

This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show.
