To Hammertown, to Hammertown.
For the last several weeks, my studio in Pine Plains was chock full of paintings. The pieces were in all stages of readiness for the exhibition currently on view through Labor Day at The Gallery, Hammertown, Rhinebeck (click here for their website, www.hammertown.com). My studio walls were covered with paintings ready to go, easels held paintings I thought could still be made better, against the walls were frames that were still drying, and on tables were paintings being framed. Work and paintings everywhere.
I finished the paintings, frames were prepared (with the gracious and skillfull help of my neighbor Ralph Boekemeier), paintings were placed in frames, and all were delivered to Rhinebeck. The paintings now hang in that beautiful room alongside wonderful pieces of furniture. It is as if the paintings have already found lovely homes. Stay tuned to this blog for more images of the paintings on the gallery walls
