It's been a strange year, but things are returning to normal in Lambertville and Artists' Gallery has resumed it's normal show schedule. This October I am once again showing with acclaimed watercolorist Beatrice Bork in a show entitled "In Our Nature".

In this show, I continue my exploration of the parks of northern New Jersey - the mountains, rivers and forests have been providing endless inspiration for my artwork. Beatrice continues to be inspired by her animal subjects which she paints with such exquisite detail and sensitivity to composition.

Most of my painting titles are self-explanatory but this one needs a little explaining. This is one very impressive tree. It's trunk is marked with so many wrinkles and scars, it feels really ancient. I was reminded of some comments I heard about my earlier tree paintings, and someone had mentioned Yggdrasil - in Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is an immense mythical tree at the center of the cosmos where it connects the Nine Worlds. The gods visit Yggdrasil daily. This tree is Yggdrasil. I am sure of it. (What a strange year it's been).

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. Due to the pandemic, there is no opening reception, but otherwise the gallery is open it's normal hours. If you need to see the show outside of normal gallery hours, please let me know and we can arrange something.
