New: “Rose Hips” 48 x 30

The New England coastal landscape wouldn’t be complete without the rugged Rose Hips that grow wild on dunes and beaches, as well as in the more manicured gardens of year-round and summer-resident homes all across the Cape.

New: “Last Day of Summer”

You can’t always be where you want to be. This Labor Day was spent mostly in Boston, moving my son back to college, and not where we ALL would have rather been…on the beach, on the Cape. So, next best thing was to finish a piece begun on the very place we’d rather be… “Last

New: “July Sun”

I came across this scene recently, in Brewster, MA, just around mid afternoon. The huge old maples cast dramatic shadows on the barn’s facade and side, but brightly illuminated the roofs.

New: “Upland Blue” 36 x 36

This piece, “Upland Blue” earned its title for the slight bluish tint visible on this old weathered barnboard on the grayish day I came across this place. With that hint of blue in mind, and the goal of amplifying that color in the finished piece, “Upland Blue” is neither literal, nor entirely imaginary, in it’s

New: “Late Day” 40 x 30

Driving East on Route 28, near the Harwich/Chatham line, I caught a glimpse of this old barn, tucked back down a long drive, and part of an old Cape Cod farm. Did a U-turn and drove down to capture a reference shot. Light and shadows on the Cape are a bit more dramatic, thanks, in

New: “Summer Places” 48 x 48

With Summer here, morning walks along the Cape Cod shore of Nantucket Sound provide no shortage of abstract contrasts of light and shadow, horizontal and vertical lines. While this piece was completed on a chilly, rainy day, it brings me back to that warm, sunny summer morning.

New: “May Fire” 48 x 48

There’s a brief period during the spring, when the pinkish maple buds and other sprouting things appear–under a late afternoon sun–almost fall-ish. When we think of Spring, we think green…which it mostly is. But even in the newest leaves of many trees and grasses start their lives as a soft blend of oranges, yellows and

“Morning Sun” 24 x 24

A recent early morning walk along the shore in West Dennis, on Cape Cod, inspired this piece, “Morning Sun,” as I ascended the beach up a small dune path. These coastal properties have withstood decades of hurricanes, nor’easters, and high storm tides, each time reshaping the landscape between them and the sea, but always returning

New: “Wild Cape” 48 x 48

The Cape Cod landscape is, at first glance, a mix of soft and hard lines, created by the omnipresent horizontal where sea meets sky. It’s palette of the soft green of sea grass, light ochre of sand, and the dark bluish green of cedars and scrub oak. But when the sun is low–just after sunrise
