"Crabbing Bridge"

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

The sun popped through the clouds long enough to illuminate the bridge for my painting. Then it played hide and seek with me until it set…

"Twilight"

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

I always think of twilight as the beginning of the space of dreams. What did happen. What should have happened. What could happen. What will happen…

"Hot Summer Day"

“Hot Summer Day”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 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!…

"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…

"Slack Tide, Fog"

“Slack Tide, Fog”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

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

"Quansoo Creek"

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

This scene attracted me a year ago, but the pond has been over full of water until now. Only when the dune has been cut open to the sea does it get this low…

"Edge Of The Wood"

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

Behind a vernal pool on the edge of the Great Pond grows this elderly oak. Toward sunset the lingering light catches its branches and graces them with gold…

"Distant Cabanas"

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

I went back to the farthest NE corner of Edgartown proper and painted this view looking west. That is State Beach, or, as I’ve always known it, Bend-In-The-Road Beach. I have painted those cabanas from many closer, different angles before, but not from this far away…

"Into Nashaquitsa"

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

Searching for dried milkweed pods to paint for the foreground in a larger piece, I walked down to the waters edge to uncover today’s subject. It was dead low tide, quiet and still as I began to capture the landscape on my canvas. Three fast flying ducks navigated through the narrows a foot above the water as I worked. They quickly passed within feet of me with whistling feathers and mild peeps as their wings worked overtime…

"Katama Moon"

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

I planned creating another painting of the flat bottomed pond skiff, “Tidely Idely” (see my work March 30, 2011 on my website), which is moored just to the left of this view. However, as I was exploring the best place to setup my easel, I saw that the moon had just come up from behind the cloud bank. I am a sucker for painting moon rise images, but I had not been paying attention this month to moon phases. Normally I plot a plan of action a day or two before a full moon. This was a very pleasant surprise…
