Point Pleasant Poem (16x16) oil on linen
Had a wonderful time returning to Plein Air Easton last month (my 4th time) and the beautiful landscape there.

Made in July (9x12) oil
I was able to stay with a painter friend afterwards for a few days and tour the Smithsonian Museum of American Art where they have several Thayers, Benson's and Tanner's that were all amazing to see in person (especially the Thayers)! We even stumbled upon a William Wendt that was being cleaned in their restoration room. Good times again in Maryland -- hope to return next year!
