Farm at Harvest Time

Here is a photo of Norristown Farm Park in November, 2017.

Here is the painting done from this scene, also in November, 2017. It’s acrylics on board, 18″ x 24″ on wood board.

Chefs

For the past several years we have eaten Thanksgiving lunch at the Hotel Bethlehem in Bethlehem, PA. I can recommend it very highly.

One year I took a photo of the chef at the omelet-preparation area, and made a tile.

I did it again. And now, again. Here you see the tiles from 2015 and 2016, and now…2017. All are 6″ x 6″, done in Velvet underglazes, fired at cone 06.

Oh Those Trees Again

More trees. Each one is 6″ x 6″, done in acrylics on wood board, October, 2017.

The Little White House – again…

I’ve got a thing for this house. I don’t know why. I took the picture along with a lot of others as I took a walk in a neighborhood near a park where I run, in Rockledge, PA. In other words, a place I am familiar with, but not my stomping grounds, if you know what I mean.

I’ve done a tile portrait:

Tile, approximately 6″ x 6″

I’ve made a small painting

Acrylic painting, 6″ x 6″

Now this one.

“At This Address”, 16″ x 16″.

Am I finished with this little house yet? Somehow I think not. Wait and see, that’s what I say.

Local Sights

These two paintings, done in November 2017, are based on locations near me and that I see so often I wonder at the fact that I still find them interesting. But I do. It’s because something small changes every day.

I’ve captured just one day in the life of these places.

As usual, I have made some changes from photo to painting, but – I think you can see the bones of the inspirations.

I’ll start with the intersection of¬†Spring Garden Street and Butler Avenue, Ambler, PA. If you follow my poetry blog you know that I have made a little occasion of photographing this intersection as I wait at the light there on my way to Montco for Poetry Marathon sessions.¬† Here’s one of those photos:

and here is the painting (acrylics, 12″ x 18″)

“Leaving Downtown”

And the second location is closer to my home – a repair shop I pass almost every day, at Jenkintown and Baeder Roads, Glenside. Photo:

and here is the painting: (acrylics, 12″ x 18″).
