Sparkling rivers-majestic herons, stately bridges-lively wrens:
I take up my brush
& wake up the paints

eras palette awards
The 84th Annual Elmira Regional Art Society 2019 Palette Awards show is hosted by the Arnot Art Museum and runs from Tuesday, November 26 to Thursday, January 3.
As an exhibiting member of the Elmira Regional Art Society, I am eligible to take part in the show. I have entered a large encaustic entitled "Contrast." The work's subject is one of my favorite: the iconic triad of the Corning Inc. headquarters building, the Little Joe Tower and the newly renovated CenterwayBridge in downtown Corning, NY.
I used pigmented encaustic waxes over a pastel drawing to achieve the depth of the landscape. The final step was to apply a photo transfer onto the wax. The high contrast drawing creates a strong structure to the work.
Of course, you are invited to attend the Reception and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, December 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Hoping the Palette Show becomes part of your holiday festivities.

Finally back in the studio and I have created a number of new works for your enjoyment. Four of these are classic watercolor and ink paintings. Wintertime is my theme for the four birds enjoying winter berries and sumac.
The others are the next set in my limited "A Radiance of Cardinals" series. Printing the ink drawing on watercolor paper, I used pastels and colored pencils to bring the drawings to life. I have truly enjoyed interpretting these drawings in very diffferent ways, but hope each rendition gives you another insight into cardinal moods and expressions.
The show runs from November 29 through January 25. The opening reception will be held during the Urban Arts Crawl on Friday, November 29 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
