"Life Saver"

“Life Saver”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

Far away from all is this stretch of beautiful beach. It happens to have a bad rip tide along it. Stationed every so often there are orange boxes with rope inside and a life saving ring. These may be tossed out to the hapless swimmer struggling in the rip…

“Wind Swept”

"Wind Swept"

“Wind Swept”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

More cliff washed out in the past month’s winds and tides. A section slumped half way between the top of the cliff and the beach. I was able to stand on the slump, set my easel up and appreciate the new view…

“Slack Time”

"Slack Time"

“Slack Time”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I started this on a rainy evening a few days ago while sitting inside my van. I couldn’t finish it then and went back a few more times for better details. The light was not as dark and overcast the next few times. So I waited until it was almost dark for the colors to mute more like the original start day…

"Far Meadow"

“Far Meadow”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I almost missed the color changes in these marsh grasses, as they turn from green through orange and gold then brown and silver. Soon enough, beside sky and cloud, the cool blue water will remain the sole enchanting dancer in the land and sea of winterscape…

"Pulling The Pots"

“Pulling The Pots”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

None of the lobstermen appeared while I was painting this, which was good and bad. It is always good to paint without too much activity happening around me, but then there is no one to pose a question to about my subject matter…

"Moon Full"

“Moon Full”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I sort of knew where the moon would rise when I started this piece. But, I really didn’t. I hadn’t done a compass reading, nor looked at the astronomical chart. I was glad it wasn’t off in the pines to the right as I might never have seen it until too late…

"Black Point Moon"

“Black Point Moon”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

A beautiful, warm and sunny afternoon found me out along the paths behind the dunes. The Atlantic Ocean gently rocked the air with sounds of surf and scent of sea. Ducks dropped down into the reeds for an overnight rest. Moon rose from the east gaining its luminous power as the sun slipped ever lower and was gone…

"Fuller Street"

“Fuller Street”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I came into town to paint a friend’s garden, but the frost had beaten me to it. The lighthouse was just down the street…

"Watering Can"

“Watering Can”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I accidentally scared a turkey away in a friend’s backyard and discovered this red watering can as I turned to go. I think if it hadn’t been red, I might have let it be and gone about my business…
