New: “Flaxen Sky”

There is always a color that, at the beginning of a piece, emerges as the primary color around which the palette is determined. In this case, I blocked in a yellowish gold with the slightest tint of green for the sky, but wasn’t sure it would remain that way to the end. But as the

New: “Divergence”

This is the second in a series of pieces inspired by a decaying, abandoned farm a few miles from here. The property is marked with very visible “No Trespassing” signs, but there are so many different views, perspectives, and angles created by the barns and farmhouse positions to each other, I had to take the

New: “Amber Light”

Love that time of late day, in certain conditions, when the landscape looks like an old yellowed photo. There’s a warm yellowish tint to everything, like the amber filters used in movies to create a sense of being back in time. “Amber Light” 24 x 24 o/c

New: “Farm’s End”

This old farmhouse is a few miles down the road, slowly decaying on a coveted piece of land along one of our state routes that runs east/west from Keene, to the Monadnocks, ending at the Seacoast. A growing retail highway. It’s classification as a working farm is likely to soon be re-zoned commercial. I recently

New: “Duneland”

This piece is a good example of the importance of not falling in love with your first idea for a composition, like I did. I climbed over this dune a few months ago, and to the East there were three summer cottages peeking over the dune grass. Thought it would make a nice composition, but

New: “Violet Sky”

Sometimes a painting comes along simply based on the desire to use a particular color. I have a tube of quinacridone violet… very intense when mixed with white. I started this piece with that color in mind for the sky…and that alone seemed sufficient to name the piece with color as the starting point. “Violet

New: “Last Mowing”

This is the time of year the local farms mow their meadows, and bale the hay. The dry grasses are cut and layed flat, exposing some remaining green where the grass meets the soil. You see these swirling, curving patterns everwhere, but only for a few days, as the hay needs to be baled soon

New: “Approaching Fog”

Came across this small cottage on a fall day on the New Hampshire Seacoast quite a few years ago. Fog was rolling in from the Atlantic that day, slowly erasing the horizon line. I started this piece shortly thereafter, but having put it aside, recently finished it. “Approaching Fog” 36 x 36
