This small painting, aptly just titled "Onions", is part of a small two-person show at the Jaffrey Civic Center in Jaffrey, NH. The other artist is Dave Dodge, a friend and fellow artist whose works I admire very much. Dave does marvelous plein air paintings with a wonderful simplicity and economy of brush stroke. When I grow up, I want to paint like Dave! I've also included a sample of Dave's work here, so you can see for yourself! Check out Dave's website here.
If any of you are local to this southwest New Hampshire region, I invite you to stop by and see the show. As a bonus, beginning at the end of this month, the other two galleries in the Civic Center will also feature the works accepted into this year's Monadnock Arts Auction, an annual event by the Chamber of Commerce here, complete with a (black tie optional) gala event with champagne and gourmet goodies. There is an ongoing silent auction prior to the live auction event, and you might want to bid on some wonderful artwork at very good prices! More on that later.
Our two person show will run from Jan. 6 - Feb. 12. Come on by!
