Pieces may be purchased at the cafe. Ask for assistance to remove artwork from the wall and pay the cashier.
Whether you purchase or just view the artwork, please take a card and send me a note. Let me know what you think about the pieces. I always love to hear from viewers. Critiques are always welcome.
While you are at the Brown Bag, try their great food creations.

We love having breakfast there and bring home a healthy share of their home-made bread, pies and sandwiches. Full breakfast menu makes one drool. Chef Calvin performs magic at the cook-stove. The cake lady and bread crew do a wonderful job at creating delicious, specialty cakes, breads and muffins, sticky rolls, brownies, whoopie pies, and lots more. The staff is friendly and fun to talk to. Some of them feel like family. If you get to know the regular customers, you’ll find them friendly with great stories to share. You must go there and experience the ambiance. Our first visit was in 1999 and we got hooked.

So, people, go to the Brown Bag Restaurant Cafe, enjoy the food, look at my artwork and if one moves you, don’t be shy to ask an employee to assist you with it’s purchase. Bring an artwork home—you will have something special to enjoy for years to come. Visit my website:

Art Update, November, 2011

Scenes Around Wolfeboro, New HampshireImage by billandkent via FlickrArt update!

You will see my latest oil painting, “Birch Trees by the Lake ” —oil on canvas, in the Wolfeboro Public Library.

It hangs as part of a group show with the GWAC (Governor Wentworth Arts Council). I’ve been a member for several years. It is a great group of artists and fine craftspersons. The show will be available to view until December 1, 2011.

Also, a new painting, “Three Sandpipers”, now on display at Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters, 541 North Citrus Ave, Crystal River, FL.

The subject is a result of my observation of sand pipers at Palm City beach last year. The birds seemed to be having a discussion so I captured them and immortalize the moment. The ocean is rough and rushing in from behind as they stand in the sand at the edge of the rough sea.

Two other smaller water color paintings hang at the Hernando Shop as well. Go to Cattle Dog! They have the best coffee in the country! Their’s is the only coffee I can drink. And their pastries are spectacular. If you like really good (I mean really, really good) food for lunch, instead of a burger somewhere or a plain sandwich with little flavor, get in your car and drive up to Hernando or Crystal River and visit the Cattle Dog Coffee Roasters. They will treat you right.They also have wi-fi so you can check out my website as well.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
