The Pub is open daily 11:30 AM until 2 AM Monday - Saturday; 4:30 PM - midnight on Sundays. http://www.tapandmallet.com/

 







 


Did this on the plane --and layover-- from Savannah to Rochester. Art Rage is a wonderfull paint program. Acts and feels just like paint.



"Karlovy Vary" (Czech Republic) was sold as a result of the display at Java Junction in Brockport, New York. That makes two sales from that show. These are giclee prints so additional prints may be ordered. (I now limit an image to three prints. So, two more prints of "Karlovy Vary" are still avaiable.)





Through the end on November. Daily 9AM - 9 PM.

696 University Avenue, Rochester, New York








Below is a documentation form that I fill-out and give to the purchaser of one of my digital prints.





A small show for me will open November 3rd at the "Starry Nites" cafe in Rochester, New York. The cafe is in the "neighborhood of the arts" in the city, 696 University Avenue.. "Starry Nites" is a comfortable bohemian type place with a Van Gogh theme. It serves coffee and pastries as well as lite meals. My display will be up until November 30th. Open daily 9AM-9PM.

My steps in creating a digital painting are pretty much the same as it is in creating a traditional oil painting. After determining the composition I paint-in large areas of color. Below is the original photo from one of our travels to Venice. You can see some changes in the composition from the original composition. The overall scene has been cropped on the right to create an arrangement according to the 'rule-of-thirds'. Some areas (the canopy, especially) have been repositioned to create a more compact design.
