Contemporary American Realism in colorful oil paintings by Libby Manchester Gilpatric of coastal and rural New England landscapes, urban studies, interiors, still life, figures and critters. Some win awards. Some wind up in private collections.
Donated this small (6"x12") oil painting to the Newport Art Museum's Annual Wet Paint Auction 2011. Silent bidding was active, sending the work to the floor of the Live Auction on the second day. The popular scene netted One Grand for the Newport Art Museum, the place I went to for oil painting lessons twelve years ago!
