If there can ever be a place that rivals uniqueness of Maine it would be Youngstown, Ohio. The small engine that could located in the heart of the Rustbelt, Youngstown has character like no other. More snow at the moment then Maine and tons more people in my day to day. Working both on landscapes of the downtown and a few commissions from Maine hopefully the work will keep me warm. An exhibit of Youngstown artwork will go on display at the Mckelvey Gallery in the downtown on December 21, opening at 6:30pm.
