Happy New Year

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year.
I met some new friends this year and got to meet other artists thru the internet that I would'nt have met otherwise.
Thank You to all the people that purchased artwork from me, I appreciate the encouragement and support you give me.
I got a new painting partner this year, my brother Chris. This coming year will be filled with plenty of plein-air painting trips.

I want to thank my wife Maria for being so supportive and understanding,  because being an artist takes alot of  alone time, whether out plein-air painting or just learning to improve your craft and doing the business end (which she excels at thank God), she has been a tremendous help to me.

The painting above was the wine we had at Christmas. I thought it would make a suitable model for the New Year celebration.  Enjoy!
