The Opening of “Pictures Serene and Sublime”

Thank you to everyone who came to the opening of “pictures serene and sublime” this weekend, and of  course thank you to everyone who made the show possible,namely Randall H. Bennett, Director of the Bethel Historical Society, for lending his collection, and making this exhibition possible. It was a wonderful opening , and the show will continue to hang until August 31, so if you have not seen the show there is still time to check it out. here are some photos of the show:

One of the over riding messages from our show (as illustrated in this historic map) was that the White Mountains are not just in New Hampshire they extend well  into Maine.

  3. Your paintings are wonderful ! I cannot wait to get to Bethel and see these
    masterworks in person. Thanks for your great workshop this Spring in Jackson. I was
