Freeze frame!

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday

Slow-motion weekdays stare me down

His perfect picture got me wound

"Freeze Frame" by J Geils

Joel is often asked why he does not sell framed paintings. Well, just like the artwork itself, the frame is up for interpretation.

These petite beauties are a tidy 4x6". 

Ignore those little arrows!

Cropping while tired is not recommended.

These pieces from the "Minumental" series were framed to be available for quick sale and shows. A nice, easy present - can be shipped to someone with no fuss or taken off a display wall and hung immediately at home.

Other pieces are not so simple. This pet portrait of a Maine Coon belongs to owners who have a defined Venetian style home. It wouldn't make sense for Joel to put the painting in a frame when they know exactly what looks best in their home and what appeals to their aesthetic.

This most recent piece, "Fenton's Landing" in Sunapee, New Hampshire, will be sold unframed but if the new owner wants a recommendation, Joel will bhappy to help. After all, father knows best!

WGBH selects my painting for their 2014 Boston Art Walk

I was honored to receive a call today that WGBH Boston will be featuring my oil painting, Dance At The End of the World in their Boston Art Walk this evening.  I donated this painting to WGBH to raise money for their station and PBS television.  This is a huge honor as only 76 acrylic/oil paintings were selected for this year's show!
Their art auction will conclude this weekend on channel 2 in the Boston area and will be fully televised.  My painting's bidding will conclude at 11:14pm EST on July 26th, Saturday.
