Rough Point


This is the view of the Atlantic Ocean from Rough Point, the summer home of the heiress Doris Duke. The link will take you to Newport Restoration Foundation which has preserved much historical architecture in Newport, RI. It was a pleasure to paint there on a morning when it wasn’t open yet to the public and our group could explore the grounds freely. I chose a corner of the main house ( really more like a mansion ) and one of the many rocky outcroppings. Plein air at its best!

Dune Shadows




This 10x8 oil painting captures the path to the beach- always a new experience; will there be calm or waves, low tide or high? My footsteps quicken, I can’t wait to get to one of my most favorite places- the ocean.
