A House Portrait

I think I may like painting portraits of houses more than painting portraits of people. Houses have such visible personality.

Secret Supermarket

Behind my laundry mat, there is a supermarket. The food is fresh and well priced. I would not know about this food market if it was not for my need to go on walks as my clothes dry. The store is called “Gokul: Indian Supermarket.” It is a beautiful building.

Coffee Shop Corner

This past month, some of my small watercolor works were on display at Grooveground in Collingswood, NJ. To commemorate the occasion, I painted this wet sketch of Grooveground’s interior.

Gabrielle and Co.

For my last plein air painting in Ocean City, NJ this summer I painted Gabrielle and Co.‘s store front. As their slogan says, the store is a “fabulous collection of beautiful things.” If you’re ever in Ocean City I suggest checking it out. Also, a new branch has just opened up in Hammonton, NJ. Stop by and say hi to Julie for me.

Three Years of Collingswood

Every August, Perkins Center for the Arts hosts a rendering contest. A building in Collingswood, NJ is chosen to be drawn. This is the third year I’ve participated in the competition. I am very thankful for this yearly opportunity to publicly paint with other artists in the area.

The first year (2008), I made this painting of a church on Haddon Avenue. Last year, the chosen building was the Collingswood PATCO station. My pencil rendering of its interior received second place.

Tickets, Please. Graphite on paper. 9″x12.”

Framed and ready to hang: $175.00

This year’s building was the Perkins Center for the Arts. I chose to work in the watercolor and ink pen style I’ve been experimenting with all summer.  Yesterday, my piece won first place in the painting category.
