In the studio now ... Come back often to watch a selection of my paintings develop from start to finish. I usually work on several paintings at a time, particularly with oils, which involve multiple glazes planned out ahead of time, each glaze needing to dry before the next.
"First Light" (sold while in progress)
A hazy summer morning and gentle lapping waves come alive in this 8" x 6" oil on gallery wrapped canvas Final image coming.
Morning glow . . .
A quiet moment at ocean's edge develops
A study in contrasts and reflections
The setting sun gilds branches, softly mirrored in a freshwater pond
Strong westerly breezes on the edge of a nor'easter blow the tops off 15 - 20 ft. swells on the outgoing tide
There's a thrill to capturing the ocean's energy in oils This 8" x 16" oil is still in the studio getting final touches
"Sunrise" The sun peaks through on a misty, cloudy morning (sold)
Private commission Sometimes there are no photos that capture a departed loved one as you'd like to remember them. Here, a number of photos were used to recreate a favorite memory of a couple's late fur child.
"At Water's Edge"
Paintings are often windows into places and the artist's thoughts as they paint. I might have called this one "cathedral".
19" x 25" Pastel "Radiance" in progress This painting was originally to have been unveiled last year. A health problem due to breathing pastel dust put it on hold. It will appear here when completed. Take care when using pastels.
See the progress of this 9" x 12" seascape from start to signed finish. Sold.
8" x 16" oil on canvas
"Roxy" family portrait
Captions explain the process step by step as this 11" x 14" oil painting takes shape.
This was my first painting of a bird and my only acrylic. I enjoyed the process beyond the limits of acrylics. It was done for one of the most special people in my life as an artist, now sadly gone but never forgotten. I miss you John.
