First commissioned piece in a while...

First commissioned piece in a while...
Titled "Boston," as it is of the city's skyline. A friend recently requested before moving to California that I paint her an abstract of the Boston skyline ... so here it is! She is very happy with it, and so am I -- especially since it's my first commissioned piece in a while AND the first time in a bit that I've been given an actual subject to focus on. I hope for more commissions in the future!

First annual ArtsNight Maynard a smashing success!

First annual ArtsNight Maynard a smashing success!
Thanks to all those who came out for the first annual ArtsNight Maynard event on September 10 -- the venues were popping, sales were dropping, and women were shopping! (OK, the last part not really, but...bear with me. It's been a long day.) For those who missed it, my art will hang at Look Optical in Maynard through December, so check out their website for hours open and stop in to see the works!
