"Chilmark's Chocolate"

“Chilmark’s Chocolate”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

Around this time each year, Chilmark Chocolates shares their odd lots with the community. They do this by giving the post office chocolates to put out on the counter for all who come in to leave or pick up mail. Needless to say, it is my only favorite season to go and get my mail! After nibbling some there, I realized the full pieces would be a great still life and I could write it off as a business expense. Giddyup, I went straight over to the store and got 2 boxes to contemplate. Today’s painting, hopefully, is one of a series I will do while this miserable weather keeps me in chocolate, er, indoors… Thank you, Chilmark Chocolates!

"Split Rock"

“Split Rock”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

This painting was a request from a few weeks ago. The wind and weather had conspired against me until today with wind coming from the South, but rain possible at any moment. I tried out my painter friend’s new Open Box M easel and tripod in a waterproof box in a waterproof backpack. It turned out to be a very enjoyable mile hike to and down the beach to get the view I liked. The borrowed gear was very comfortable. I could have hiked farther with ease and will again soon…

"Nomans from Allen Farm"

“Nomans from Allen Farm”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

This is a view I anticipated was actually there, but wouldn’t know for sure without walking out to the high point of the field. The clouds had been looking ominous for over an hour when I chose to go out. There appeared to be canyons between the cloud banks and setting sunlight was piercing through creating wondrous bands of color… The windchill was wicked and I had to stop in the middle and run back to the car for my gloves!

The surf was the only thing which looked paintable to me today. It was another gray, overcast and windy day…
