Grenning Gallery Solo Show

Big Sur Cows Grenning Gallery Solo Show

Big Sur Cows. 55 in x 42 in, oil on linen.

My solo exhibition in Sag Harbor, NY opens today at the Grenning Gallery. You can see all the images of the paintings on their website here.

The works included in the exhibition are mainly smaller plein air landscape paintings from the last couple of years in Italy, Croatia, Russia, France, South Africa, Holland, Norway, and the US. There are also a couple of larger plein air paintings, and a few studio pieces as well.

There are articles on the show on Fine Art Connoisseur, Underpaintings, and Lines and Colors.

Here, quickly, are some of the recent larger landscape paintings I’ve been working on. A couple are plein air landscape paintings, the others were done in the studio.

The portrait of Tina under an olive tree will be in the show, as well as a number of small and medium-sized plein air pieces from the last year.

I spent much of the winter on the painting below but I can’t figure out how to resolve it. I hate abandoning large pieces after months of work, but sometimes artists have to cut their losses.

I have a few more larger pieces on the burner which I’ll add soon.

Sag Harbor Paintings and My Grenning Gallery Solo Show

I’ve been painting on the East End of Long Island in the summers now for 14 years, and it’s always great to be back. This show will include the following Sag Harbor paintings from the week before the show.
