Eighty-seven Days to Go.

I've been framing the Face to Face project. 87 days to go till the exhibit opens in November, 62 pieces are safe under glass, 21 are complete in their frames and ready to hang.

Each piece takes a couple of hours to go from being in this pile …

to this pile …


to this pile.

A couple of friends who volunteered their framing skills will be helping with the last part of the framing. Most of the glass, which has been donated by Wayne Newman of Newman and Holmes, has been cut and is ready to install. 87 days to go. I have promised  myself I would get this part done by the end of September. That is really much shorter than 87 days isn't it?

Here are a couple of pieces from the Morristown Plein Air festival. I really like painting in that neck of the woods along the St. Lawrence. The clouds are amazing and one can see to forever in the yellow sunshine.

Look for me painting Plein Air between August 19 - 22 in the Saranac Lake area, my stomping grounds, during the Adirondack Plein Air Fest. I will post my morning location on Facebook so maybe you can track me down. I may have afternoons figured out but not have access to electronic media. We'll see. There will be a show and sale of all the work made by over 50 participating artists at the  Harrietstown Town Hall Saturday August 22 from 10-4. Over 400 paintings of our territory here in the 'Dacks- surely there will be a favorite view for anyone who lives here - visitors too.

Please don't forget to check here if you would like to support Face to Face. I am giving away my 2016 calendar and paintings as gifts for donating.  
Thank you to everyone who is helping. 
It is Our Project!

One of these folks has moved away since their portrait was made. Anyone know who?
