"Tashmoo View"

“Tashmoo View”

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

A mellow day faded to a pleasant sunset. As clouds moved in, sunlight danced along edges of blue and gray, saluting the day, heralding the night…

"V.H. By The Bridge"

“V.H. By The Bridge”

“V.H. By The Bridge”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I have been here many times, but never noticed the summer shadows at this hour before. I had to stop to let someone pass. That is when I knew it was a painting waiting to be plucked…

"Solstice Moon"

“Solstice Moon”

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

I motored to 3 different locations to capture the moon rising. I got my bearings mixed up and came here to sort it all out and paint this view instead. Never mind that there were heavy clouds along the east horizon, I soon realized I might be in “the spot” after all. I almost stopped before the moon peeked out. A fisherman suddenly appeared, walking up by the tree in the painting, holding a 34″ striped bass he had just that minute caught. I resisted temptation and kept painting, eventually fishing after dark. I returned home canvas full but fishless…

“595 Boat”

"595 Boat"

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

I was drawn toward the blue pond skiffs. However, a lot of other things seem to have come along with them…

"Edgartown Stakes"

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

This is the view to the north of the last painting I did, “Scallop Boat”. It was a different evening light as well as different wind direction, and colder. With fewer boats left in harbor in winter, it is easier to see into the far corners compared to the madhouse of summer boating…

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

A very windy afternoon, (30 mph, SSW), caught me off-guard without a plan. The head of Lake Tashmoo by the pumping station is always a safe bet but for a Northwind. This evening was no exception. Sailors had rowed in from their anchorage and unknowingly left me their dinghy to fashion my dreams upon. As I stood and painted, a mother mallard duck practically walked over my boots with 4 young in tow as she left the sanctuary of the spring pond behind me and waddled into the briny Lake…

"Aladoah"

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

Gray days are hard to color. Boats always seem to help brighten the view…

"Approaching Storm"

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

I tried to do this outside as ice formed in the puddles and the cold air was streaming in on a 35 mph wind. I got a start in my van, but it, too was rocking from the breeze. The studio was a nice warm spot in which to finish this…

“Two Cats”

"Two Cats"

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

A nice, almost windless, afternoon gave me a chance to set up out on Short Beach and paint this view. I had no expectation of finding catboats on moorings in this sheltered cove. At this time of changing seasons anything may appear around a bend in the landscape…

"Clam Point Cove"

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

The sun had left the Cove as I started to paint. It was hidden by the hill which partially surrounds what must have been a glacier sink hole back in the ice age. The subtle glow from the lightly clouded sky over head gave a shadowless scene for me to interact with. Other than a Great Blue Heron and a lone Cormorant I had the Cove all to myself. I put my headphones on and rocked out into the dusk…
