I was notified that this painting won first prize in oil in the Agawam Community Artists and Artisans Annual Art Exhibit. It can be viewed with all the other excellent entries on display at the Agawam Library until December 30th. Very humbled that this was chosen considering the great talent in this group!

I used brushes and painting knives on this oil painting. It is entitled "Crane Pond Waterfall" and my perspective is viewing the falls through the overgrowth of trees and brush on the shore. It was very difficult to get an unobstructed view because of the trees and the deep ledge to the water. I used the knives on the leaves in the foreground.
I just received word back from an online art appraisal company regarding the value of this oil painting that we have. It is a George Carpenter oil on masonite board measuring 20" x 30" image area. It is titled "Cundy's Harbor". We received it as a gift from a friend who was moving some years ago. The appraisal came in as $1000 to $1500. Jean my wife loves it and remembers seeing it in a window display in a gallery in Rockport, MA years ago.
