Last year the wind changed direction at my studio. I wanted to get more work out into the world, and began thinking about making prints for walls or fabric, or placing my images on clothing. My painting image library was stocked with mostly iPhone images (read: not enough pixels for quality printing) s...

Back from a long period of digital silence. I want to share what I'm working on today, after some months of small paintings inspired by the quarries of Cape Ann. I need to paint big stuff again! My arm is happy when it's really moving and the paint is flowing.  Here's layer 1 of a painting I started to...

Convergence (oil on canvas, 30" X 30") was first painted in gouache as a small study at a beloved Maine island I visit annually.  I was mesmerized by the movement of the seaweed, the rushing and soothing sounds of the water, and the depths beyond.  On a lark I made a two-minute video of the motif.  Bac...

Here's the final version of the painting I posted about in July:  Cottage Window with Nasturtiums, oil on canvas, 30" X 30.  Looking forward to sharing this one at my November show at the Beverly Farms Library.

This past week I've been working on a larger version of a painting I did a couple of years ago.  Just for fun, here are two days' progress from the easel on the new one (30" X 30") as well as the earlier painting (12" X 9") completed in 2014.  I've always loved the composition of this image.  It's exci...

Excited to be integrating past years of looking, learning, discussing, experimenting, and hard work.  This painting is a leap for me and I intend to keep moving.  It's about color interaction, amplified I think by lively brushwork and an ambiguous picture plane.  It's my first completed work since my m...

I've been thinking a lot about the painting process.  Here I'm sharing at least the visual part of my process, from source photo through value sketch/underpainting and on to the completed painting. (Thanks again to photographer Barbara Aiello for the inspiration.) 

My aim was to celebrate the form...

It’s been winter for what seems like forever.  Does that mean I stop making my beloved landscape paintings?  Not at all.  These are the months that I’m grateful for a trusty camera and long dog walks.


This week the source material for a painting is a photograph by my talented friend Barba...

This is what's on the easel this wintry morning.  I was struck by the moxie of this stalwart tree holding its foliage through January, and my  goal is to express that energy.  I like this beginning very much.
