2 more impressive entries from Doylestown
Left: David Hahn, "Winter Landscape",
11" x 17", Acrylic. David has been painting for 20 years in the impressionistic style.
This original painting is quite beautiful. The impasto layers successfully achieve the desired mood....the banks of the river in winter. This painting suggests a style and technique of paintings of long ago...the hay day of the New Hope School and the Delaware Valley Impressionists. Bravo David and thank you! The impressionists are alive and well in Bucks County.
Right: Denise Callanan-Kline, "Shad Run", 11" x 17", Acrylic on board. Calming aquas and blues lure us into this original acrylic depiction of the shad run....upriver to spawn. Huge shad can be seen as we walk across the bridge between New Hope and Lambertville during April, May and even into June. They take quite a beating through this ordeal but eventually work their way back to the Delaware bay to regenerate for next year. Thanks Denise!
