Best in Show!

Newburyport Art Association, 2012

Spring Members Open Show... Best in Show award goes to.....

What a surprise, it feels good!

Here it is...

This triptych of 18x18" panels with thin maple framing is an original oil on stretched canvas and is part of a series I'm working on called Bear Hill Road.  There will be 4 very large canvases and several medium-sized canvases and so far 10 small paintings of this wonderful area here in Merrimac MA where I walk in the mornings.  There will be a variety of paintings of all seasons of the year.

There is another painting of this scene that is 12x36" stretched canvas with a gold plein air frame.

  3. Another friend says this:
    Tried to leave a comment but DIDNT KNOW HOW!!!! These modern things! Anyhow, I had said, "What a neat idea and how fortunate you are to be able to walk this beautiful path and then to be able to capture it on canvas. I can't wait to see the winter scenes". Congratulations, again. Sylvia Haffke
