I just started a new group on facebook titled "Plein Air Painters of Western Massachusetts" after realizing that there wasn't such a group! There must be other artists in this area of the state that enjoy painting outside. Just a place to load plein air paintings and get support and help!

A slide show of some of my recent paintings. Most are oil and painted plein air or on location of local Westfield scenes. The images of the paintings can be purchased as prints or reproduced on coffee mugs, shower curtains and on many other items at my website at www.richard-nowak.pixels.com.

I had to cancel my plein air acrylic painting workshop Sunday because of the weather forecast. However, they were wrong and so I decided to paint by myself on the Westfield River Bridge to take advantage of the light.. The sky changed a lot during the two hours that I was there but I was able to paint a small 9" x 12" acrylic painting.
Fresh off the easel! "Fall Colors, Westfield River", oil on canvas panel, 12" x 16", painted from my own photo taken last autumn!
I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
