Owls Head

This painting was a perfect Maine morning, clean and clear and tranquil beyond description. It sold today at Spring Bull Gallery before it even got hung in the upcoming En Plein Air Show!
I'm delighted it will be headed to New York with a new collector. Thank you!

On our trip to Maine I happened to have a peaceful morning to myself and found a spot right at the harbors edge to paint. With all of my senses engaged, I zeroed in on shape and color, with a great deal of editing needed to simplify the chaos into a painting.

The Waves

The view from Bailey's Beach in Newport RI looks out at this wonderful house built on the ruins of a home destroyed by fire in 1927.
I painted this for Wet Paint, the most fun weekend summer fundraiser for the Newport Art Museum.
Silent bidding then a select few chosen to go to a live auction- and mine was one of those "under the tent". Thrilling!
