Ed's Garage #2 - Wyckoff, NJ

 First stage of underpainting underway.
 First painting of Ed's garage framed and hanging.

 Paintings in Gate House Gallery, Wyckoff.

 Lance and Maria's great room with painting.
Little blurb about my Lambert Castle show in today's Bergen Record.

I had a small mention in the NY Times about this show in the Sunday edition for the past couple of weeks as well.  This past Monday, my son Jamie was in the Record for scoring his first Varsity goal.  It was a nice feeling seeing my piece in the Sunday Times, then seeing Jamie's mention the next day in the Record.

 I was also in some of the local papers, mentioning that the Lambert museum opening is 1/14/15 from 7-9 PM.  There is a reception the next night at Englewood Medical Center for the "Art Of Healing" show that I am in as well, from 5:30 - 7 PM.  Both receptions are open to the public.

Nice way to start off 2015.  Happy New Year to everyone!

Open Wednesday December 17th until Sunday March 29th, this exhibit focuses on the sights of our local community, as shown in the paintings of Bergen County resident and artist Mark Oberndorf.

Oberndorf’s work focuses on the views of local buildings and features within our neighborhoods. Many pieces included in A Closer Look at our Community feature Passaic County, while others portray subjects from a wider geographic area. Some subjects include restaurant signs, barber shops, private homes and fire stations. Through his work, Oberndorf demonstrates what is beautiful, interesting and quirky in our communities. Through this exhibition visitors will be able to see their environment in a different perspective. Visitors can access the exhibition during regular museum hours (Wednesday-Sunday). General museum admissions apply. Meet the artist at the exhibit reception held at Lambert Castle on Wednesday January 14th from 7pm-9pm.  The reception is free for members, for all others regular admission applies.
The Passaic County Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was founded to cultivate interest among individuals and the community-at-large in the rich history of Passaic County. To this end our museum in Lambert Castle showcases examples of the County’s cultural and artistic diversity, as well as examples of the County’s natural, civil, military, and ecclesiastical history. The Society also maintains a library and archive, which houses manuscripts, books and photographs of historical and genealogical interest.

I'm very pleased with how this painting turned out.  It seems as though I am at the peak of my artistic powers these days at the ripe old age of 53.  It has been a pretty good year and I am hoping that 2015 is even better.  Happy Holidays to all!!!
