New Gallery in Connecticut

"Sunday Afternoon NYC", oil on linen, 24 x 24

My gallery in Albany, NY has just opened another gallery in New Canaan, CT.  Sorelle Gallery will mark its official opening with a reception on Friday night, June 6th, from 5 to 8 p.m.  There will be many of the gallery artists on hand to discuss their work on Friday as well as during the open house on Saturday.  There should be some of my cityscapes as well as recent landscape work but there will be a lot of diverse work from 20 or 30 artists for people to enjoy.  So stop by if you are in the area!

Mist Along the Canal

"Study for Mist Along the Canal", 9 x 12, pastel on hand made sanded paper

Yes, another misty painting.   I like fog (unless we are sailing in it).  This is going to be a larger oil painting.  I think I will be able to refine the shapes of the trees a bit more when I do the oil version.  This paper has a lot of texture so it can be hard to get really refined edges.  I like the feeling overall but will probably do a small version in oil before I tackle the larger one.
