“The optimist lives on the peninsula of infinite possibilities; the pessimist is stranded on the island of perpetual indecision.” – William Arthur Ward (1921 – 30 Mar 1994)

The opening reception at The Watermark on Saturday afternoon October 10th, was an affirmation of what every artist hopes for their work –
SacoRiverWPSALABILITY. Four artworks sold to three friends in a flurry of activity that highlighted the afternoon’s excitement. Thanks to a suggestion from Lilliana Didovic who purchased “The Parting of the Waters” shown at left, and curator Junia Oliansky’s approval of the idea, I was able to switch out three of the pieces purchased on Saturday, with three comparable works. There’s only one red dot showing in the gallery right now, but there’s more salable work hanging on the walls as of Wednesday afternoon.

Glamour&SophisticatedLadiesWPNew pieces include two fashion illustrations not shown before: Glamour, a 13″ x 13″ printed color piece done for a fall trade show sponsored by the Wool
WoolBureau-DupontWPBureau in 1972 • $65. Plus an 11″ x 17″ sheet – Sophisticated Ladies – from a multi-paged b&w detail aid, also done for that fall’s Wool Bureau campaign • $100. These new/old works replace the two illustrations above purchased by friend Sara Benowitz, a fellow Dumpster Diver who has been a supporting patron of my art from the time we met six years ago at the Diver’s gallery on South Street; Thank you Sara.

Alaska#5WPThanks also to Maria and Tom Keane who purchased the one piece that’s still hanging in the gallery with a red dot; one of my small 6″ x 6″ Alaska paintings done in 2012, with a painted frame to match.
