Summer schedule is heating up!

As many of you know, I still hold a full time job with a local rescue mission in addition to my slowly growing job of painter. The Piedmont Rescue Mission held a craft and vendor fair this past weekend that I took part in. Since there were also yard sale items and food for sale, most craft or art items had slow sales. But having these vendors and taking part helped the rescue mission raise some much needed cash.

There is a quick pic at the bottom of this post of my setup. I just brought a simple display for originals and some bins with matted prints as well. I also met and networked with some other artists and might be taking part in a street festival thay told me about later in June.

Some upcoming events:

Saturday, June 4th - Stokes County Arts Council Wine, Bid, and Boogie festival and art auction. I will be painting on location behind Germanton Gallery in King, NC and paintings will be auctioned off later in the day. This is a great chance for me to see work at the gallery there by nationally known artists and I can't wait!

Double Exposure Exhibit - I will be taking part in this exhibit at the Chatham Camera Club Gallery later in the year. It is near the large Arts Incubator Gallery in Siler City. The photographers post photos and the artists have to choose a photo and create their interpretation of it. The art and the photographer's photo are then exhibited side by side. I will post dates when I have them.

My setup for the Craft, Vendor, and Community Yard Sale day

Vendor Fair this weekend

I will be at Piedmont Rescue Mission in Burlington, NC this weekend for their Craft, Vendor, and Community Yard Sale. It is a fundraiser event for them and I work for them but will also have a booth there with items for sale. I will have larger originals for sale, but will also offer some smaller miniatures at an affordable price and I will have some matted prints/reproductions for sale.
The event is from 9-4 this Saturday, May 21. You can find out more at www.piedmontrescuemission.org - Hope to see you there!

Small Ocracoke Oil Study

"Ocracoke Surf"

6" x 6" Oil on archival Raymar panel

Click HERE to view the auction

This is a small oil study of the water near the shoreline of Ocracoke Island in NC. I produce so many of these small paintings because they allow me to work out ideas for larger paintings before I commit to a larger canvas. This one shows a crashing wave and there was a bit of sunlight reflecting in the curves of the wave. Follow the link under the image ot go to Ebay and place your bid.
