I was happy to have been accepted into the UNH Museum of Art exhibit On the Edge, which exhibited from
January through March of 2022. The image they accepted was a charcoal minimalist drawing of a small town in Andalucía, Spain. We stayed in Ardales during a climbing trip to the El Chorro climbing area just west of Malaga. I actually created several drawings and paintings of the area.
Una Vista de Ardales, charcoal on paper (2017), is a drawing of the downtown area looking up the hill toward the ruined castle. I worked on the drawing before attempting to paint the same scene. The drawing turned out to be a better work of art than the painting. Other images of the area include those from above Ardales and a nearby quarry called Cerro del Hierro.
I am grateful for the UNH Museum of Art for the opportunity. This is my third exhibit in a small museum. The other two are the Museu Guido Viaro in Curitiba, Brazil and the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, CT.
