"Relic" plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Relic"  9x12 oil, plein air painting  Sold


Just before the pandemic struck us in 2020, an old artist friend, Juan Rodriquez , stopped by the studio for a little plein air painting. This old tractor sits like a sculpture outside the studio. It was a nice sunny afternoon casting strong shadows and saturating the rust red color. After the underpainting sketch I worked into the painting quickly to maintain a loose impressionistic feel. Looking forward to more fun days like this again soon!

Thinking forward to the new year but recalling the good things that happened in a very challenging 2020, I would like to thank all of you who have followed the blog, my website and other social media venues for your kind and encouraging comments, letters and likes. A big thank you to the collectors who have supported me by continuing through the pandemic restrictions to buy art, enabling me to keep creating. 

A special thank you to my family, especially my wife Ann who has encouraged me from the beginning to make art my profession. My son, Maury who is also a great artist and has been with me on many painting adventures. Ann's family who I have adopted as my own, who always encourage and inspire me, especially our grandkids who give us so much joy. I find myself pounding my pockets for the phone camera  to take pictures of them for use in paintings all the time. The above painting "Elise" is our youngest grand and was a Christmas present for Ann.

Thanks also to the galleries who represent me and have managed through a lot of hard work and thinking outside the box to keep the lights on and their galleries operating in spite of restricted opportunities to open the doors for exhibitions and openings. It's been a tough year for many businesses. Go to my website, Robin Weiss Fine Art for a list of galleries who show my work and many other fine artists locally and around the country. Thank you all for continuing to support local artists!

All the Best to You and Yours in the coming New Year!
