I recently helped my daughter, Lily, on an assignment for a drawing project at her art school. The assignment was somewhat vague, and far too wordy, for what I gathered to be the core message… “identify what you love, care about, or are interested in, and paint it”. It was based on the premise of

Love driving around Vermont, intentionally getting lost down roads I’ve never traveled. Each time I do, I find inspiration. I may not always know where a road goes, but I always find my way back, and discover new places along the way. “Back Roads” 30 x 24.
I visited this scene recently…one of my favorite places, in Grantham, NH, on Old Route 10. I’ve painted these barns a few times, each time something new reveals itself.

It’s a barely driven section of road, running parallel to Route 89. The “lanes” of the mown hay, alongside the small strip of Route 10 disappearing off the scene, seemed
While driving around my small section of Cape Cod (in the “Dennises”), I caught a glimpse of this old shed/garage, tucked backed a bit from the main road. It is part of an old, quintessential Cape Cod farmhouse…now preserved in the historic district of South Dennis. It was a perfect Cape Cod summer day, with
Love that time of day where the setting sun saturates nature’s colors, and gives a fiery tint to everything it touches. “Hill Fire” 24 x 20
