My latest painting is a copy of a Norman Rockwell painting with a slight twist. The original painting, titled “The Artist”, was done in 1938 and shows the young artist wracking his brain in front of his easel for a new idea for the cover of “The Saturday Evening Post”. I have copied every detail except that the cover design in this painting is being done for “The Beaufort Gazette”.

My version of “The Artist” was created for a show opening December 9th, 2013 and continuing through January 4, 2014 at the Beaufort Art Association Gallery at 913 Bay Street in Beaufort, SC. The “Masterpiece Masquerade” exhibit will feature copies of the art of the old masters and newer less famous artists. There will be a special reception on Friday, Dec. 13 from 5:30 until 7:30 where masks and costumes are encouraged. The gallery features the work of over 80 exhibiting artists. The Holiday Boutique featuring special “artistic” gift items will be open at that same time, creating a great opportunity to do some Holiday shopping while enjoying a great and fun art exhibit.
