I've finished my 50 paintings for my "50 Project" , having set that goal for myself to paint 50 plein air watercolor paintings in my 50th year. After a very busy several weeks of matting and framing in late October 2013, the paintings went on tour, starting at the Colchester Meeting House in November, then on to the CIC Gallery (The Essex Reporter and Colchester Sun offices) in December, on to the Emile Gruppe Gallery in Jericho, VT Jan 15 - Feb 23rd, to the Richmond Free Library for the month of March, then to the last of the large scale exhibits at Artists' Mediums, Williston, VT May - July, 2014. The final show was Oct 5 - 14, 2014 at The Gallery at WREN in Bethlehem, NH.
Though the 50 Project events have finished, there are still 26 paintings available for sale! Prices range from $150 to $500 depending on the size, and if you order on Sunday, December 7th, you will receive 20% OFF! All of the 50 Project watercolor paintings are framed using archival french white mat board, UV protected glass and high quality light maple frames. Email me at
In 2011,2012,2013 and 2014 I participated in several Plein Air events in Vermont. In July it was the Vermont Plein Air Festival at Emile Gruppe Gallery in Jericho, VT, which had about 75 artists registered each year, with more on the waiting list. In late September 2011 and 2012, I participated in the Vermont Plein Air Octoberfest in Stowe, VT. (Unfortunately, the VT Plein Air Octoberfest in Stowe has since been discontinued.) See my blog for more photos and information about these wonderful events. Such fun! Hoping to participate in the Great VT Paint Out in Waitsfield, VT next year. Have heard great feedback from artists who have participated in that one.
