"After The Hay"

“After The Hay”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

I painted 2 paintings the evening this field was baled into hay. The first was from about 100 feet away and posted here about 8 paintings ago. In this one the field breathes with its new freshly shorn look and the shadows rake neatly across it…

"Farm Field"

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

The sun lit up this field as I passed by. The thunderheads off in the distance also caught my eye. Luckily, they remained there while I painted…

"Summer Light"

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

The clouds I came here to paint moved too fast. So I waited for the sunset coloring to appear. It, too, was over in a rapid crescendo of oranges and lavenders…

"Storm Passes"

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

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…

"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…

"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…

"On My Walk"

“On My Walk”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

I pass this house a few times a week on my winter’s daily walk. It always makes me smile when I come upon it. Sometimes there are otter in the little saltwater estuary and sometimes duck and now a chorus of red wing blackbirds. At low tide the pond is mostly empty and high can fill it to the brim. I won’t try to paint this again until fall as the poison ivy is leafing out and it was up to my waist where I stood…

"End Of The Bend"

“End of The Bend”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

This is from the eastern end of Bend-In-The-Road Beach. Erosion is bad along this stretch of sand. The dunes on the right are in their 3rd reincarnation, having been rebuilt for the second time last year. Nor’Easters have no mercy here. I beat the fog while working on this painting. Forty-five minutes later, even the first little pond was covered in mist…

"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…

"Cranberry Bog"

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

I painted here in late afternoon light over two years ago. Driving by the other day, I couldn’t resist creating it again in morning light with the tree shadows rippling across the drive…
