A DeRan, a Buczacki and an Embree

Monday, April 28, 2014

Three over the past couple to few weeks. I've just been too busy getting the new book file ready to send off and updating this site.  Dave DeRan held another of his Open Studio events this April. Attending can be an exercise in attempted and failed self restraint. Alas, Nan spied this painted platter on the wall as we entered. That convinced her that she would either buy this one or one she liked better. I did remind Dave of my bravery in showing up. I shouldn't complain, sometimes I'm the one who can't control myself.

 Dave likes to pick up platters and bowls at yard sales and paint on them instead of a canvas. This one is almost 16 inches across. But instead of haing it on the wall, Nan uses it as a coffee table platter.

Jerry Buczacky

This is our second Buczacky mug (there, I've finally learned how to spell that). They just keep on getting better. This one has scenes from Havre de Grace in relief, including the lighthouse and a sailboat on the other side. Absolutely could not resist this.

Buczacky Mugs are now available at RiverView Gallery in town…

Greg Embree

This was a swap, Greg's book for mine. I talk about this in my Blog posting of April 1. No way we can resist art books from artists we become acquainted with. And hey, talk about something scarce – down the line, really, how many copies wind out out there? Along with the book, like with my books, came a small original that I was quick to mat and frame (pictured on the Blog)
