Art and Photographs

New Art and Photographs.

I am part of a group called the Mettowee Makers, a collective of artists and farmers from Vermont’s Mettowee Valley who create and sell co-operatively. We have a small shop in Pawlet, Vermont that is known locally as The Barn Shop.

This weekend I hung some new photographs (Mounted on boars, 8″ x 10″, ready to hang), and one of my painted lamps. The shop is open mostly on weekends, but if there’s something you want, let me know and I’ll pull it from the shop. They are $50 each plus tax and shipping.

There is more on the lamp here. 


Light: Piano Jazz

At my lovely and bright wife’s suggestion, I have begun painting old lamps and lampshades, creating works of art that look different in the day and the night.
This one is called “Piano Jazz” and is painted in oil. It uses 40-watt “tube bulbs”, similar to what a lot of range hoods use. They can be found in any hardware store.

$125.00 plus tax and shipping.
Members of my creative groups get half price.

Contact me if you would like to purchase this light.

“What if,” my wife said, “you did one of your paintings on a lampshade?”

Being a woman I listen to and who is often full of good ideas (generally more of them than I can do.), I gave it a go. And here it is. I call the painting “Cuba” because it reminds me of the jazz and lights of old Cuba, particularly at night when the light is behind it instead of in front of it.

In a way, it’s two pieces of art in one. One set of colors and whiteness in the day, and something entirely different at night when the lamp is mixed. Oil on lampshade.

$296.00 plus tax and shipping.
This is for the lamp and lampshade.

As always, members of my creative groups get half price.

I began my art with pen and ink, over 35 years ago. Over the past five years, I have moved more and more to oil and watercolors. But at the request and suggestion of both my daughter and wife, I have begun working with ink again.
