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.

I have a thing for blind boxes.

Remember Sketchbook Saturday?

I never do.

Below is a drawing from my sketchbook made during a Hammonton Arts Center board meeting. My skecthbook and I are still inseperable. Unfortunately, Twitpic seems to see more of its contents than this blog does.

Diner Place Setting

I drew this while visiting my brother at the Crystal Lake Diner in Haddon Township. Not my best drawing of a salt shaker, but not my worst.
