This Friday S. and I took the bus up to NYC to attend the Salmagundi Club Non-member show where my painting of the Three Apples on a Crate was accepted. It was an amazing afternoon and evening. We walked around NY visiting a gallery, having a wonderful meal, and then seeing all the great art in the show. The variety of subject matter and style was inspiring, encouraging me to experiment and strive more.
As the reception was winding down a kind attendee let me know that my painting was included on the show poster! S. and I had entered from the other side and had not seen the poster.
Here is a photo of me and my painting, the portrait above is the of a man named Berry, who founded one of the farmer's markets in NYC. The artist of this portrait thought it was fitting that my painting of green apples was placed below his portrait as a green apple is the symbol of this farmer's market.
