Summer Sweet Shop

I love summer. I love sweets. I love how this mid July painting of a candy shop turned out. Chocolate covered strawberries, mmmmm.

Evenings Along Asbury

Last night was the first Evenings Along Asbury of the summer. Besides great community events, every Wednesday throughout the summer there is a plein air event in Ocean City. Through this paint out I have met fantastic local artists like Ryan Simmons, Chuck Law, and Martini.

As an artist, most of what I create is done in solitude. Evenings Along Asbury gives me a chance to work adjacent to other painters for an entire season. Needless to say, I look forward to it all year. It is refreshing to see the downtown come together for the sake of the arts.

The following piece was painted last night between 5 and 7:30 pm. It won third place in the first Ocean City Fine Arts paint out of 2011.

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.

Across the Street

Asbury Avenue in Ocean City NJ has an out door painting competition every Wednesday of the summer.  This past Wednesday I won second place with this painting. The painting was a particular challenge as I chose to sit across the street from the buildings I painted. Large vehicles kept parking in front of my subject matter. I learned a valuable lesson about vantage point.
