My oil painting "La Vie en Rose" won the Ben Whitmire Purchase Award at the 29th Ellarslie Open. This painting will now become part of the Trenton City Museum's permanent collection. I am very honored to receive this prestigious award.
The museum is located in Ellarslie Mansion, an Italianate villa built in 1848. The mansion is the centerpiece of Cadwalader Park, which was designed by the famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, whose most famous work is New York City's Central Park.
I am a fine artist living and working in Historic Bucks County, PA (Philadelphia area). This blog will focus on the documentation of my original oil paintings/drawings. I will also post studio news and events, as well as the evolution of works in progress and information about my process.
