"Distant  Dunes"

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

Out of the breeze in a sunny location with Africa just over the far dunes (thousands of miles away), I studied one of my favorite trees. Its leaves, I thought, were brown, in reality were a dark shade of red. As the sun popped in and out between the clouds, the leaves turned on and off from illuminated red to a duller red/brown…

"After The Hurricane"

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

I began this image 2 days after hurricane Sandy rolled by. I returned a few more times during similar lighting conditions to finish it. Got caught up in the storm which came in on the tail of the hurricane. Contracted a bad flue which appears rampant in these parts. Now here I am 10 days later, finished…

"Always Ready"

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

It was a warm, breeze filled day. Down at sea level in the corner of the pond, I found this row boat waiting for me to paint. Sometimes, there is the danger of the boat’s owner appearing and rowing off. Today was not one of those times…

“Dinghy Dock”

"Dinghy Dock"

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

I have been photographing these dinghies all summer, to study them and to remind me to go back and paint them. Now that summer is over, their ranks have been thinning. All of the ugly inflatable ones have been put away, leaving me the more classic types to paint…

"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…

"Sun And Rain"

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

I had to stay in my van to paint this view. The sun was over there, but the rain was over here…

"Kayak Launch"

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

In summer, if it’s really hot, I’ll take an evening swim here. In winter it is a nice viewing spot to watch the sun set just beyond the point. It’s always great to paint here…

"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…

"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!…

"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…
