Plein Air - 2018


Alvino Perez




Don Yang



(note: It's been a problem before -- and it still needs to addressed:  the upper side of the picture frames are throwing horizontal shadows across the top of the paintings in our gallery. The lighting needs to be adjusted)

Chris:   Loved your new paintings and the new frames too! 
The paintings feel more luminous - and therefore more cheerful.

Perhaps you've grown even more fond of dumpsters.

Tim:  Garbage is one of the few things we still make in this country. And a lot of it is locally sourced.

Portraits of the Palette 2017


Ali Hasmut



Is this the golden age of painting at the Palette and Chisel?  It's pretty hard to top the artists of one hundred years ago.  But when considering our variety of good painting - we're looking pretty good.

"Portrait of a Wise Man"





Valerie Stanaszek


A scholar of both Torah and Karl Marx, Misha Livshulz, the model for both of the above portraits, is  indeed a wise man - as well as a good painter, sculptor, and, of course, handsome model.

But even more importantly - he has ventilated the coach house, repaired the kiln, built several modeling stands, and developed his own, unique recipe for sauerkraut.
