Upcoming Events:

  1. Melrose Arts Festival, April 8 -10; Memorial Hall at 590 Main Street in Melrose Massachusetts.  The Friday evening Preview Party with live music from 6:30 to 9 PM.  Saturday 12-7 PM and Sunday 11-5 PM.  

  2. If you happen to be in Budapest ... My drawing "Leafy Jewels" will be on exhibit at Ferencvarosi Gallery, Budapest between May 26 - June 21, 2011 as part of a Juried exhibition organized by the Hungarian multicultural center.

  3. I've entered the Saatchi online showdown contest.  People tend to beg for votes, but I'd like to see us try and restore some fairness.  If you like to look at art, consider going and voting in a few of the matchups.  My matchup is here, but I won't be offended if you vote for the other guy (I will never know).
Archived newsletters can be found on my blog, The Nerdly Painter, where I've also been adding information about the chemistry of paint, post by post.

February already!  Is anyone else trying very hard to convince themselves that Spring is almost Sprung?  It looks like the mounds of snow have melted somewhat, and there is now a snow free space to photograph some paintings.  You can see them in the New pictures section (New pictures for you at the bottom of the newsletter)!  I also have an interesting local artist to introduce, Barbara Mc Devitt (the local artist section).  She lives and works right here in the greater Boston area and her paintings and photography have a fresh lyrical quality.  She has also done some very charming Folk Art paintings on slate.  An example is the commisioned piece below, "New England Winter", which captures the warmth of a New England home surrounded by snow.
