I just finished "Aspen In Autumn" and currently working on a winter sene on a 24x30 inch canvas. The inspiration came from a photo taken by my cousin Brian Zingler, an outstanding photographer whose images I've used on several occasions.
The piece will be black, white, and gray, which reflects Michigan's winter landscape. He captured an old barn standing against blowing snow, which offers a captivating image.
I am still trying to coordinate a trip to Michigan in September to attend an art show in Rochester called Arts & Apples. It has been active for over fifty years and attended by 200,000 people over a three day period. I applied for the show back in January of this year more as a whim since I did not believe I would be accepted to this very selective show.
It is my hope that my website, "twowilletsgallery.com" will draw interest in my work and a few pieces will be purchased. Those viewing my work should recognize the fact that my paintings are priced below comparable artwork.
My work is also available on Blink magazine's website, which is viewed by interior decorators, galleries, and collectors. Blink magazine is published by Art Design Consultants, which is a large 8,000 sqft gallery located in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Six of my paintings are being displayed in the Tampa, Florida area by "Gallery On The Go".
I also do commissioned art for those who have a landscape picture that they want painted. I did one last Christmas for a man who wanted to give his mother a painting of her house. She had lived in the house most of her life and was selling the house to move into assisted living.
