Under Construction

Finally am showing this last of the 3rd Beach cottage series. This painting is on a 24x24inch panel and is now hanging at the Portsmouth Arts Guild juried show "Imagine Red". The color theme has been a huge success, starting with our "Imagine Yellow" show last year. Everyone responds to it, in either obvious or extremely subtle ways. It makes a very cohesive show to hang and there was a great turnout at the opening reception last Friday night. This show will run until May 2nd. View the rest of this series on my website.

Who can resist these first harbingers of spring? Wanting to do more immediate daily paintings as I am so immersed in the larger pieces for the show I'm in later this year, felt the need to balance with direct observation. Felt very good to work small with bigger brushes for this piece which is a 6x6 canvas.

April Fool

Wandering around Providence this first nice day after being hit with major flooding for the last several days. Lots of people out and about.Thought to bring my camera, did some experimenting in Photoshop-there is so much to learn! Love to paint first and foremost, but want to post more frequently, thus the photo, which could one day be a painting. Really interesting reflections in the window of this restaurant on North Main Street.
