New paintings

Boat at Menemsha  10" x 8" pastel

I happened by a gallery/store on my last visit to Putnam, CT with a friend. Silver Circle Studio is right on Main Street next to the community parking lot, and they had some space opening up for August 1st. So for the last few weeks I have been working on some pastel paintings to sell there. Saturday I brought three 8 x 10 framed landscapes and eight 4 x 4 framed mixed-media paintings inspired by the heart series.

Carly, the owner of Silver Circle took in the paintings and got to work on hanging everything while Brian and I took a look about the Putnam area.

Just down the street we stopped in at Victoria Station Cafe for some fantastic coffee and baked goods. They have a great atmosphere with lots of couches and private nooks to sit back and read or surf the internet while you enjoy their food.

They also have a lovely patio out front which I'd like to come back and try out later. We also checked out some antique stores and the other artwork at Silver Circle and in town. There's some beautiful work there, and I'm excited at the opportunity to participate with the artistic community. Let's hope all goes well with these pieces.
