2021 Tour Update:
Tour Guides will not be mailed this year. Once printed they will be available at Town Halls, Libraries, Sponsor Businesses, and of course, from participants.
Visitors need to check with artists they wish to visit to find out what their individual covid restrictions will be at the time of the tour, i.e.: a limited number of visitors, mask requirements, use of provided hand sanitizer, curbside pickup only, etc.
I started painting with oils in high school in the mid sixties. The seventies was an art free period, then I started painting with watercolor in the eighties making Christmas cards. After retirement in the late nineties I went back to school and got a Fine Arts degree from the University of Connecticut.
I now paint in both oil and watercolor with a focus on landscapes. Farms and their barns and outbuildings are of particular interest because they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Many of the buildings included in my paintings are gone now, so I want to paint as many as possible while they are still standing. I also like to paint portraits, mill buildings, and animals.
Some influences are: Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Sargent, Hopper, Cezanne, and many contemporary plain air painters.
