Featured Artist at Gallery 726

I will be featured at Gallery 726, located at 726 Central Avenue in Hot Springs, during the month of April. In this show, titled Town and Country, I'll be exhibiting a variety of watercolor paintings - rural landscapes, seascapes, and urban landscapes of Little Rock and downtown Hot Springs. The attached image is of one of my new paintings - Lazy River - that will be on display.

Please join me at my reception on Friday, April 2, from 5 to 9 pm during Gallery Walk, to enjoy my art and say "Hello". If you can't make it this coming Friday, stop by Gallery 726 anytime during April to see my exhibit. Gallery 726 is open from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. I hope to see you this coming Friday.

I'll also have several more paintings on display just down the street at Artists Workshop Gallery, 810 Central Avenue.

Some new paintings

I framed a few new paintings to display at Gallery 726 in April and May... I'll be featured there in April. Both of these are half-sheet paintings, and were developed after painting a similar weekly watercolor painting (these are eighth sheets). I've done it both ways... painting a large painting based on a weekly watercolor painting, and painting a weekly watercolor based on a large painting. Of course, given the vagaries of watercolor, none of these pairs of paintings are "identical". The boat scene is titled Taking a Break, and the river scene is Lazy River.

Weekly Watercolor Update

It's been about two and a half months since I began my weekly watercolor project - adding an additional small watercolor painting to my weekly painting activities - and so far, I've been faithful. In fact, I'm a few paintings ahead, having just posted #13, Backyard Barn.

As you may know, I am offering these paintings on my Weekly Watercolor website for only $100 each, including shipping within the United States, so art lovers will have access to a large selection of my original art at a very affordable price. Most of these paintings will be 7-1/2" x 11", suitable for a 12" x 16" or 14" x 18" frame. These gems are large enough to enjoy, and small enough to be hung almost anywhere. If you haven't visited the site lately, please do so - there will always be new paintings to see. You can also sign up for automatic updates on the website About page, or on my supporting Weekly Watercolor Blog.

I'm excited about this project, and I hope you enjoy watching as a
new painting is added each week. If you would like to follow my art
