Taking Stock

Thanksgiving week featured the return of Sarah and the boys from a trip to Pennsylvania, the emergency installation of an oven in a friend's kitchen so that he could cook turkey for 40 people, the aforementioned feast for 40, and a victory by my beloved (and this year, beleaguered) AC Milan team. It didn't feature as much painting as I'd hoped, but it did give me time to plan for the coming months.

There are still some pieces at Dowling Walsh from my October show. Quidley & Company has a few paintings, including two that they took to November's Boston International Art Fine Art Show. Yesterday I shipped Clear to Gallery Henoch in New York for their upcoming group show. I recently finished a commission for a family in Philadelphia and am in the midst of a commission for a couple in southern Maine. And believe it or not, I've already started to work on paintings for my July 2014 solo show at Dowling Walsh. Nothing helps a Mainer get through a cold winter like plans for the coming summer.
