Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope today finds you surrounded by people who love and support you.

Among the many things I am thankful for this holiday are galleries that partner with artists to help us sell our work. In particular, the wonderful William Ris Gallery in Stone Harbor which accepted some of my work this summer. This gallery is opening a new show tomorrow (Friday, November 27th) which will run through January. The show is A Tribute to 100 Artists. Here is an excerpt from their press release...

"[This show] honors their talented and diverse stable of painters, sculptors, and craftspeople. Each artist has hanging one or more pieces of work. The juxtaposition of these varied styles makes for an exciting compilation, creating a balance and rhythm of color, palettes, pigments and perspectives. The works stretch from landscapes, still life, figurative, realism to abstract and vary in media from watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, wood to ceramic."

They are celebrating with an open house all Thanksgiving weekend. Please stop by if you are in the South Jersey shore area.

The sketch above is of Indian corn - a staple of Thanksgiving and autumn decorations. For those of you who don't know, Indian corn is the name for cobs that have colored kernels vesus the common white or yellow kernels. I am sure other places in the world must call it something else, but I only know it as Indian corn.
