The Waterfowl Festival Virtual Gallery

 I exhibited at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland for almost thirty years. After an absence of a few years, I was invited back for the 50th anniversary...but then the pandemic happened. This year, there will be no traditional Waterfowl Festival but rather a virtual gallery. I am honoured to have three pieces in this year's gallery.

Click on the link and enter my name into search to see my oils. As these sell, I'll replace them with new pieces. Waterfowl Festival Online Gallery  If you're in the U.S. and purchase a painting, the work is already there so shipping costs will be the standard domestic shipping with Fed-ex. You will not be paying for international shipping from New Zealand to the United States.  Sizes and prices are available on the link.

My son's work

My son, Shane Rebenschied, is a full-time illustrator. On January 1, 2019, he started an ambitious project to paint one 6" x 8" oil a day for the entire year. As of August 16 2019, he has not missed a day. Shane graduated in illustration from Art Center College of Design, so he is no stranger to painting, but it's been fascinating to watch his growth these past 288 days. He's not restricting himself to a specific subject matter but has painted landscapes, people, animals, seascapes, trees and plants - but lately has been painting a single item; a teacup, catsup packet or a strawberry. He posts daily on Facebook and also on Just Keep Painting.  After a week or two on his website, they're moved to his ETSY page,  They're available for US $100 each plus $10 shipping while on his own page then the price is $120 on Etsy. Check out his work. I'm blown away by his paintings!

This painting is straight off the easel so the wet painting is causing a glare. When it's dry, I'll get a better shot of it.

My son's painting project

Shane is a full-time freelance illustrator. He does primarily book covers As most of his work is done on the computer he misses painting. On January 1 he started a project, committing to do a painting every day of 2019. So far, he has not missed a day. If that wasn't enough, he coerced his wife, Marla, into painting with him for the month of May, both painting the same subject.  Marla is an artist with fabric but had never painted before this month. She's turned out some delightful pieces. They're a mix of still life, New Zealand and American landscapes, wildlife and figurative.

Today is the last day of painting for her but Shane will continue with one painting a day for the rest of the year. His project is called, 'Just Keep Painting'. You can see (and purchase) his work here.  Shane's little oils are all 6" x 8" or thereabouts, unframed. They sell for US $100 each plus shipping. Marla's are US $50 each. Shane, Marla and their three kids also live in New Zealand.

Just Keep Painting!

My son, Shane Rebenschied, is a full-time illustrator. He does mainly book covers but also advertising and magazines.  His work leaves little time for fun painting, so at the beginning of this year, he started a painting project called Just Keep Painting. He made a commitment to do a painting a day for all of 2019. Wow - that's 365 pieces! He's keeping them small - 6" x 8" or thereabouts so that he can complete one in an hour or two each morning. He's posting them on his website,  Just Keep Painting, where they're available for sale at US$100 each plus $10 shipping. They're of varied subject matter - landscapes from both New Zealand (where he and his family live) and North America, architectural and animals. He started this project to experiment, to explore different techniques and painting tools such as brushes and painting surfaces. The first 31 pieces from January are up - so take a look!

Today's Oil Study - Hummingbird

This little guy could be a male Broad-tailed Hummingbird, found in the western U.S. Or it could be a Ruby-throated Hummingbird found in the eastern U.S.  They're similar and I haven't painted enough detail to define the difference.
