Painting published in Art of Conservation book

Good news! My oil painting The Buzzard Rock has just been published in a new hardcover book entitled The Art of Conservation 2008 - An International Exhibit of Nature in Art

The book has been published in conjunction with the Artists for Conservations inaugral annual juried exhibition which opened at the Hiram Blauvelt Museum of Art, New Jersey on September 28th. According to the AFC website -

"The show companion book, as it is being called, merits much more than being labeled merely as a show catalog. It is a true coffee-table book – 10-1/4” square, 188 pages, hardbound, and in printed in full color. The stock used for printing was from an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) –certified and sustainably managed source. The contents feature not only every single artwork from the show, but also several additional chapters that provide context and information about the show itself, The AFC, the Blauvelt Museum, WCS, the AFC Flag Expeditions program and the Simon Combes Conservation Award. The book sets a new standard in quality as a show companion and is testament to the quality of the show and the dedication of the organizations involved. Proceeds from the sale of the book support the AFC. It is very reasonably priced, at $US 39.95, plus shipping and applicable taxes. A limited number of copies of the book are available for order, directly from the AFC by emailing"
