I no longer have the luxury of large blocks of time, so lately I’ve enjoyed finishing some old studies and plein air paintings. I can come back to them with a fresh eye after several months of sitting on the shelf... and they don’t take that long to finish (it’s perfect for those 20-30 minute micro naps Everett has been taking). I started this 9x6” study of a backyard aspen tree last December and just put enough time in it this morning to call it done. “Golden Hour Aspen”, oil, available. .

On the Quest for "Mastery" and Being Stuck in a Chair
This week the American Masters Exhibition opens at the Salmagundi Club in NYC, and several of my dear friends are included in the show. I feel both happy for them, and somewhat introspective as I am being nudged to up my own game. Hopefully someday I'll be good enough to be included in a show of this caliber.I have been following with interest some lively discussions on social media about what it means to...
