SMALL PAINTINGS


The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in City Park, Hagerstown MD is about eleven miles south of the town in PA where I grew up. I had an aunt who lived less than two blocks away and we went there often to play, feed the swans and ducks and on occasion go into the museum. It was my only childhood exposure to real art, but it had its effect. There was a diminutive painting of a woods in moonlight by Ralph Albert Blakelock that I always went to. It's mystery and intimacy are what I have never forgotten. Those are qualities I still purse in my work. Here is a series of small paintings, most around eight or nine inches square, done since moving on from the mezzotints.
