Painted this for my sister and her husband, their house before the renovations. 11x14, I had fun with this, from the dried hydrangeas in the foreground to the small piece of Narragansett Bay behind the house. They were thrilled and that made me happy!

This painting was just purchased by a friend for a Christmas gift for her sister. Their mother passed away earlier this year, and her house, which had a view of the bridge has been sold. So now they will always have this view!Painted plein air at Battery Park, this bridge leads to Jamestown and points south from Newport, RI.

Second in this little series is Sliced, again painted on a 6x6 cradled panel. I coated it with gesso first, then sanded it. I could have used a second coat of gesso, but my impatience won out. I played with the edges of the foreground rind, not wanting them to be too well defined. Working quickly, not trying so hard. Against my nature, but then, that's how I grow.
