Spring 2024 Update

Spring is one of my busiest times of the year. It can be summed up by spending a lot of time outdoors watching Spring unfold while birding, painting and leading public tours as a docent at the Arnold Arboretum and co-leading bird walks for the Brookline Bird Club. I am also busy getting ready for the start of art fair season. This includes finishing paintings, varnishing, framing and getting all of my show supplies ready. So here is a run down of my latest activities and upcoming shows…

Plein Air in the Arnold Arboretum

Here are some photos from recent forays at Peters Hill. Note: these are drying and will soon be framed and ready for my June shows.

Spring Migration Birding

I bird daily during the heart of Spring migration (now!) and take a few snaps with my so-so camera. Here are a couple of some of my better photos.

Indirect Painting at the Academy of Realist Art in Boston

I have been taking classes at ARA for a couple of years where I first started doing Bargue drawings (graphite/sight-sized drawings) then eventually got tired of filling in the holes of the paper. I am now taking classes on color studies and portraiture. Here are a few examples…

Spring Shows!!

I am participating in these highly competitive shows again this year and grateful that I have a chance to show my latest work to folks. I will have a tent spot but do not know my location at this time so be on the lookout and check the websites for latest info.

The Beacon Hill Art Walk: Sunday, June 2 from noon – 6pm

Come stroll private gardens and alleys on the North Slope of Beacon Hill where artists and musicians will be set up. I will likely be in a tent spot somewhere around West Cedar Street. Visit the festival’s site for details.

I am happy to be returning after not making the cut last year 🙁 This is great event in the heart of Coolidge Corner in Brookline that will feature over 70 artists, a DJ, food trucks and a beer & wine garden. Check out the website for more details.
