Some months have passed, and some new art has been created. I have been busy with other things in my life so unfortunately I haven’t been able to keep up with this blog as much as I would have liked. Thanks to all of you who have continued to follow me here. It is really appreciated.
These are a few of my latest…. some local scenes from the beauty of the adirondacks.

I am taking a little detour from the normal course of showing my paintings here today. This is something I am also passionate about and am hoping that you will share this on your blogs, facebook, twitter, and by any other means you can!!! Thanks so much for watching… it is short by the way, less than two minutes. ~Rita 🙂
I can’t believe the summer has come, and is almost gone already! Time does go by so quickly. While it was passing I tried to hold on to some of those summer moments, painting my way through them. Here is some of what transpired.

Well, here it is Thanksgiving weekend, and in a few weeks it will holiday time once again. I haven’t posted in a while, and realized it is because I have really been making an effort to spend as much time as I can soaking up my favorite season, Autumn. It has been a beautiful season this year, and as always, one that seems too short. Here are a few of the pieces I painted to remind me of the season I enjoy so much. ~Rita

It’s that season again! The Fall shows have started everywhere. Rita and I will both be showing a variety of landscapes at the “Landscapes at the Landsakes” Annual Exhibition in upstate New York to benefit farmland conservation. The show is open to the public at the Maple Ridge Gallery, 172 State Route 372, Colia New York from October 8th through 10th. It promises to be a great show with a lot of beautiful work. Join us if you can! – Eden
As most of you know who follow this blog, I mostly paint landscapes, and have a particular love for this area and the Hudson River School Painters. But every once in a while, I really get an itch to do something different, and often it is a still life that seems to be calling to me. Yesterday was one of those days, and here is the result of that calling. ~Rita
