Jordan Farm Bus...

jordan farm bus 12x16sm


This was painted at the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust Paint Out last month. The event is a lot of fun and very well run. It was a quick sketch done after working on a bigger painting through the morning. Jordan Farm was a great location with some fun old tractors, and also this great bus. This is a 12×16″ painting, oil on canvas.

Maine Island...

Bird Island 12x16sm

Lately I’ve been playing with some scenes of the islands in Penobscot Bay. This one is Curtis Island, painted from the shore of Camden harbor. Afternoon skies can be fun to paint for the soft shifts in color and value. This is a pretty simple scene, but I really like the painting. It’s 12×16″ oil on canvas.

Spring Tulips...

Flowering Spring 28x26sm



This was painted at one of my favorite local gardens this past spring. I love painting gardens when tulips are in bloom and everything in the garden is still fairly clean and uncluttered. This is a lovely garden that goes right up to the sidewalk near downtown Camden.

Dinghies on a Dock....

These two dinghies are parked in Rockport harbor, and I’ve always liked the color of the teal interior on the right. These two together make quite a pair. I don’t do many dinghy paintings, but I did have fun with this one. 12×16″ oil on canvas.

Podcast/Radio Interview...

House on a Hill 20x16sm


I painted this in Stonington last summer. The composition is a bit odd, but I really like how this one works. I think it’s the subtle shifts in grey and white that I like, and the way the more intense colors contrast against those lighter tones. This painting is 20×16″ oil on canvas.

Also, I’m doing an interview today at noon EST for Artists Heloing Artists, which is a podcast/radio show that interviews painters and gives advice on building your career as a painter. If you want to listen to it live you can do so at this link. You can also find the podcasts online and hear lots of great painters talking about their process.
