Just sold this oil painting of the Gillette Building to the Westfield Gas & Electric Company who occupy the building. I had it framed in an antique gold wooden frame. I should have taken a picture of it with the frame! It was painted en plein air on location in the parking lot across the street on a Sunday afternoon in the summer. It is oil on canvas panel, 11" x 14".

A week ago Saturday I had an outside plein air acrylic painting workshop in Westfield. My student and I painted this scene in Chauncey Allen Park in Westfield. My acrylic painting below is on a 9" x 12" board. Usually my acrylic paintings are not as textured as my oil paintings.

I painted these five oil paintings during the last two months in plein air or on location in downtown Westfield. Although not architecturally accurate I wanted to hopefully engender an nostalgic feeling about these old historic buildings. Three of the five original paintings are available for purchase and they all can be purchased as prints or the images reproduced on coffee mugs, greeting cards, shower curtains, bags, etc. at my website at www.richard-nowak.pixels.com
I just gave this oil painting as a gift to my 82 year old uncle Ewald in Canada when my three sisters visited him last week.

I just got an online art appraisal of this oil painting that was found by the side of the road in Westfield by my sister who gave it to me. Things people throw away! It is by Cape Cod artist Marilyn Schofield dated 89 or 80. It looks like a Cape Cod winter shore scene. It’s appraisal comes in as $200-$400. My wife Jean loved the painting and we framed it!
