From Bellows' Field

Trees, greens, a view of the sea and cows dotted the landscape of George Bellows' field.

From Bellows' Field  oil study  6x8 





















Some of us went there to paint, but rain ruined the work. Here is another painting after revisiting about five years later. See it on view now at the Conanicut Island Art Association exhibit "Painterly," at Jamestown Philomenian Library at Town Hall on Narragansett Avenue through May 11.

If you plan to be at TF Green Airport before May 9, please visit GreenSpace Gallery (next to Arrivals) where seven paintings of mine and about a dozen more of two other artists greet visitors to Rhode Island.

Please view more work at my website and at the link to DailyPaintWorks on the right.
Thank you!

Blue Grass

Blue Grass -Late afternoon clouds billow with sun-struck tops and reflected in a rain puddle, bare trees showing off white and lighter tree trunks, the greenish grass changing to blue to unite with the wet street pavement. I love being 'alla prima' master of my universe! $100 puts it on your wall in a little 7x5"frame. (no tax, free shipping) A perfect hostess gift!

Mark, Astern to Port


    Mark Astern to Port -- a favorite marine subject as we begin to think about getting back on the water though spring seems far away -- a study for a larger work, oil on canvas panel, 6x8" $100




I will post the larger work on my website.
Thank you for looking at my painting. My work keeps me balanced on an unsettled sea. I am thankful to have this creative outlet and hope it also brings you calm and comfort.

The Neighbors' View


The Neighbors' View · oil  · 10 x 8 · NFS

Sad for us our neighbors of two years moved last summer to Washington, DC. This little view from their back porch just catches a small view to the far shore of the Sakonnet River. I have ratcheted down the intensity of the photo reducing the glare from fresh juicy paint. As soon as it's cured enough, off she goes to join our friends in their new home in Alexandria - a little remembrance of a brief tour of duty at the Naval War College and life in our cozy neighborhood.

Postings will continue now on a more regular basis after a surprisingly hectic fall. Included in the fray has been a lot of experimenting with a pattern drawing method known as Zentangle©, getting reacquainted with my old profession of Hand Lettering and teaching a few small classes, painting abstract works in acrylic, water colors and pigmented cold wax sticks (not all at once) and practicing the art of painting with a palette knife. I will show these from time to time as the spirit and schedule invites. With Halloween behind us, this melodramatic presidential campaign will at last be overwith in a week. Looking forward to celebrating and with relief. Meanwhile, thank you for taking a look at my painting and posting.
