"Storm Passes"

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

I have resisted painting this scene with this barn on many occasions. Not that I don’t love the red of the barn in contrast to the green of the landscape, but, it just is not the style of typical local barn…

"Hot Summer Day"

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

This was the first day of summer. The weather obliged. The skies were blue and the temperature went from the 60’s yesterday to the mid 80’s this day. And did I mention that there was a breeze to keep the bugs at bay!…

"Hay To The Barn"

“Hay to The Barn”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

As one of my friends said, I “have hay fever”. This field, with the barn at the bottom and the hay at the top, was too much for me to drive past more than 3 times today and not stop to paint. The color of the barn doors is just enough to energize all the surrounding greens. The late afternoon sun gives it extra drama as it rakes across the pasture…

"blank Cola Creek"

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

This little stream is known locally as blank Cola Creek. In the autumn when the leaves and acorns fall, a lot get washed into this water shed. Their tannin turns the water the color of blank Cola…

"Spring Hay"

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

I am a sucker for hay. Whenever I see it cut and bailed, or rolled, I just want to paint it, to capture that fleeting moment from field to barn. After the work was done, the farmers left the hay rolls to be collected another day. I had the field to myself and enjoyed the view and air and light until the sun went down…

"Coming And Going"

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

One ferryboat went by me before I got the hint that maybe they were my subject for the day. It was nice to have 2 tries to capture each one as they passed by in the shipping lanes every hour or so…

To purchase, please click Go to my eBay auction, Bidding starts at $100.00 US.

"West Chop"

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

I have been studying this area during evening hours until dark for possibly larger paintings to create. There are nice ways to get out of the wind here and great sky-dome sunset light. Besides sea and sky, there are other less obvious foils to play off between me and the horizon. Besides juggling, wind, tide, hour and image it is now the season to factor in biting insects as well…

"Trial Run"

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

I came near the harbor hoping for a sail to paint. This obliging boat appeared and reappeared a few times. She was capturing some good air. I was in the lee with enough breeze to keep away the newly hatched no-see-ums and mosquitoes. A very pleasant afternoon…
