Thrilled to announce that Oil Tankers at Dawn has been juried into the

Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors

Exhibition Dates: August 8 - October 5 2015


The theme for the 119th Annual Spring Exhibition for the Buffalo Society of Artists was “Where We Are and Where We Have Been.” I had a painting that fit the call (Leaving Larkin) but wanted to do something fresh. I like to show new work as much as I can when I enter exhibitions.

While driving out to Rushford to check on our cabin, I remembered taking photos of the trains that pass through the area all the time. I had wanted to paint them before but never got around to it.

In looking through the shots, the oil tankers stood out. They have been in the news recently, as a new danger to our communities. I also thought about how this natural mineral is considered a lifeline to modern society, we do need it to survive or so we think. And then there is the war...

This is my painting on view at the exhibition.
