New: “Fenced In”

Living on an island, as I did many years ago on Martha’s Vineyard, there are times you feel trapped by island life. It’s often difficult, and expensive, to get a boat back to the mainland. And despite the beauty and uniqueness of the Vineyard, sometimes you just needed to get off-Island. And that wasn’t always

New: “Beach Road”

As a kid who summered on the Cape, days were spent barefoot, walking the sand roads that lead to the local beaches, to a friend’s house, or to the ice cream truck that slowly stalked us as it drove slowly through the beach parking lot. Those roads still exist, and this one, located in Dennisport,

New: “Late May”

Incredible weather here on the Cape this Memorial Day weekend. Being the weekend that marks the start of Cape Cod summers, it can just as easily be a beautiful sunny weekend, as it can be a cold and rainy one. This year we lucked out. And while on a drive back from Chatham, I came

New: “Lilac”

Lilacs are one of those trees that are beautiful for a very short period of time, when in full bloom, but after that are just sort of blah. Same with forsythia (all my opinion, of course). But when at their peak bloom, there’s nothing like them. In honor of their very brief moment of glory…”Lilac”

New: “Seaboard”

The coastline of the Northeast shares the pure simplicity of where land meets the sea…the horizon line, preceded by a band of sea, with land in the foreground. Three simple shapes. Anything that interrupts the simplicity of those horizontals is instantly in the spotlight. There’s no shortage of old beach houses along the shores of

New: “Red Maples”

I can’t remember where I first saw this cluster of barns…could have been Vermont, or New Hampshire, or in one of the rural town in Mass just south of me. Doesn’t really matter, but I like the intersection of angles the structures make, with two at right angles to the dominant front one. These geometric

New: “Lowland Light”

We had some interesting light yesterday, up here in New Hampshire (and probably most of the Northeast) due to forest fires in Canada. The smoke vapor in the atmosphere gave the daylight a golden glow, and at dusk, the sun was red. It was a beautiful light…shadows looked softer, and everything seemed to be a

New: “Uplands”

This smaller piece is based on farm close to home, in Mont Vernon, NH, which I’ve painted several times. Pretty simple scene, with the barn tucked into the slope of the hill, and a few small saplings growing here and there. Each piece is different, but focuses on some other aspect of the scene, depending

New: “Crosswinds”

There’s a narrow stretch of the Cape, in North Truro, that runs along Cape Cod Bay. On the west side is the Bay and on the east side the Atlantic. These two summer places sit feet from the shoreline and are subjected, at times, to winds from the Bay and winds coming in from the

New: “North Country”

My approach to commissions differs from some, but works well for buyers who are looking to fill a specific wall space, and have several images in mind of pieces they’ve liked in the past. My process is simple. You can read about it on this page. This recently completed piece is a good example of
