April 7th - 30th I will be exhibiting for sale 32 oil and pastel paintings done over the past ten years in Cordorus State Park. The park is just outside Hanover, Pa. and is a mecca for boaters, fishermen, hikers, hunters and campers and one plein air painter (me). There is a 2,000 acre crystal blue lake and many beautiful coves and marshes. The Hanover Area Arts Gallery, 32 Carlisle St., Hanover is open 10 - 5, Mon. - Sat. The opening reception will be on Sat. 7 April, 1 - 4 p.m.
A plein air painting in March. I choose this simple scene to get started painting out of doors again. After painting in the studio for much of the winter, it is hard to look at the landscape and eliminate what is not needed to create harmony and say what you want to convey to the viewer.
