Door County 2013

This will be my ad that will appear in the Door County Plein Air Festival Program Book. It is a true for honor to receive the invitation and paint with 39 excellent painters from around the United States. The event is in July and attracts many visitors. I painted there two years during the heat wave with temperatures in the 90s and it was an effort to finish two paintings a day. The event is sponsored by the Peninsula School of Art and the dates are June 22-27.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
Oil on Linen

This impressionistic landscape of a winter evening is in homage to our dear friend, Maxine Williams, whose full and vibrant life is on the horizon. As the poet Dylan Thomas so aptly wrote and "Mackie" has admirably fulfilled, "Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
