Framing Alfred Stieglitz

Am quite pleased with how this one turned out — a little (5" x 6-1/4") print of an iconic New York streetscape by one the great masters of photography, Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946). The frame's 2" wide, in walnut with a bit of Nut Brown stain.

Here's a better look at the profile:

Paul Kratter Wins Plein Air Awards

Paul Kratter is sporting two more feathers in his cap. At last month's Carmel Art Festival, his painting "Rush Hour" (oil on canvas, 8" x 16") was awarded Second Place—a feat topped this month with first prize honors for his "Glory Days" (oil on canvas, 10" x 20") at the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Best of Plein Air Show! No doubt about it, Paul's clearly established himself as one of California's top landscape painters.

Congratulations, Paul!
