86 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 3 - July 9, 1998 Dennis Fomey photo Phil Miller watercolor exhibit opens at Kupchick's Phil Miller, a "self-taught watercolorist who had a few lessons from some good artists up in Pennsylvania several years ago," enjoyed good sales at the opening of his annual exhibit at Kupchick's Restaurant on Lewes Beach on Friday, June 26. Many of the more than a dozen originals on display in the restaurant showed the red dot - meaning sold - within an hour of the opening of the show. The paintings show coastal scenes from the sandy shores of Delaware, pastoral scenes of field and water from around the mid-Atlantic area and scenes from the rocky coast of Maine, where Miller vacations occasionally. "I used to work outside but now I do most of my work from photographs. I pace around the studio and attack the painting several times - then finally something comes out. I remember when I first started out years and years ago, I tore photographs from "National Geographic" and painted 9 by 12s one after another. It's developed from the, Gay!e0_ughten of Smyrna, who attended the open- ing, bought her sixth Miller. She purchased "Ship ]Pceiving Station," which shows the Mar- itime Exchange Tower at the point of Cape Henlopen. ....... "It's just so natural," said Doughten. Her husband, Lin, plays trombone and she met Phil, al- so a musician, when Lin and Phil played gigs with Cape Region jazz pianist Lawrence "Scot- ty" Scott. "I've sat on many a hard wooden bar stool with Bonnie [Phil's girl friend] listening to their music," said Doughten. Miller's exhibit also includes a limited edition of prints of King's Ice Cream on Second Street. One of those on display includes a pencil remarque of the old DeBraak Restaurant and Hotel on Lewes Beach and Luigi's Wheel House, which occupied the Kupchicks building before Kupchick's. This photo shows Phil doing what many artists en- joy very much - taking payment for one of his works. He is shown with Doughten and some of his works in the background.
