“Nearing Storm” study



On a recent early morning walk along one of the Sound-side beaches of Cape Cod, a bank of clouds forming further up Cape, maybe over Buzzards Bay, sat on the horizon as a dark strip of grayish purple. But as the morning progressed, and the breezes pickup up, the sky darkened as the cloud bank

New: “Dune Light”



There’s a strip of Bay-side beach on Cape Cod that has been a special part of my life since I was a kid. Extending West to East from Chapin to Cold Storage, this sand-bar expanse of beaches are interspersed along their shores with dunes that have, over the years, shifted and reshaped themselves according to

New: “Alongside” 36 x 36



There is something about old structures that have withstood time and weather, that have remained intact through good times and bad, that transcends there being man made things. I’ve painted barn pairings before, and in this piece, “Alongside” (36 x 36, based on the old Upham Farm barns down the road), that same sense of

New: “Island Meadow Afternoon”



Years ago, when living on Martha’s Vineyard, days began, or ended, with walks through the many open land trails the Island offers. This piece, “Island Meadow Afternoon” (40 x 30, oil on canvas) is of a clearing in an up-Island tract of privately owned land in Chilmark, a portion of which has been deeded to

New Work : “The Ascent”



I never mind getting lost. When driving through the rural back roads of New England (or anywhere), GPS shut off, it’s inevitable I’ll end up going the wrong way to wherever I’m going. On a recent trip through rural Central Massachusetts, I found myself lost on an old road, on the outskirts of the town

New Work : “Jade Skies” 36 x 36



While recently on a drive through Harvard, MA–a beautiful small rural town I’d never been to–I came across this old farm with a main barn and an adjacent long barn that disappeared behind a huge expanse of hedge. Raised on slight knoll, the main barn seemed somewhat smaller than it should, due, perhaps, to the

Simplicity vs Complexity



In this piece, Summer Sun, the intention was to keep the piece simple, sparse of detail, and focused on the light, shadows, and the object casting the shadows. As many things in the scene were edited out, it was the remaining elements that proved to be a bit more complex to render than I had
