"Slack Tide, Fog"

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

There has been quite a bit of fog, lately. Ten minutes before I started this painting, it was sunny with good shadows…

"Evening Fog"

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

I drove right by this tranquil scene, the fog was so thick. When I rounded the bend in the road, I could just make out this boat. I turn about and was able to park and get this painting mostly done. Then I noticed car headlights going past getting brighter and brighter. Or was the evening getting darker and darker…

"Sailing Lambert's Cove"

“Sailing Lambert’s Cove”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

The joy of spring is that one never knows what to expect around the next bend, as the season turns toward summer. I had no thoughts of a sailboat appearing as I started this painting. Now I may start to anticipate sailboats as I move on to newer water views…

"Rocks Remain"

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

It was a warm and beautiful day. I went to the beach to watch the light dim, the colors turn to gray and the waves lull me from evening into night…

"Spring Leads To Summer"

“Spring Leads To Summer”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

Spring rain and warm weather have brought the dune grasses back to a vibrant green. Lounging on the beach and playing in the surf are closer than you think…

"Spring Fog"

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

A rainy blowing evening sitting in my van while painting the rock strewn beach. The fog added mystery and the rain intensity of color to the scene. All was appreciated from the dry warmth of the driver’s seat with my easel in my lap…

"Forest Fog"

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

At a new location (for me), I followed a path which wandered through a swamp and over a small stream or two. Then this clearing appeared on slightly higher, dryer ground. Emerging from the closeness of the swampy shrubbery walls of the trail to the openness of this space, made me appreciate the larger view this afforded. The tree trunks were like umbrella poles with their developing canopies overhead. A fog lingered at the edge of view, maintaining a surreal quality to the place as a stonewall laced along the back…

"Great Rock, Spring"

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

I am back in my summer studio and out painting again, now that the move is over. It is still spring here by the ocean. Some leaves are out and some are just beginning to unfurl. Landscape color is delicately beautiful as it changes from buds to foliage…
