Well, Spring must be coming because the Arts Shows are all popping up. I'm in the H2O exhibit at the Arts Center in Old Forge. I went to the opening reception this past weekend (yes they still had snow in Old Forge). Also coming up are "A Sense of Place" with Associated Artists at the Manlius Library and the Hecklectic Eklectic Art Show with CNY Artists at the Fayetteville Library both opening April 3. It's time to start thinking of the next big show, one of my favorites, "Along the River's Edge" at the Thousand Island Arts Center in Clayton.
Pictured here is "Adirondack Still Life", an oldie, but one of my favorites for the "A Sense of Place" show.

Down by the Water

This watercolor is a study for a larger piece which I plan on painting this Spring.The use of analogous colors (3 colors next to each other on the color wheel) create a sense of color harmony which helps to hold the composition together.
I was working on this up at camp; no running water yet. I used melted snow to clean my brushes.
