Looking West at Warren's Point #12 of 30

Looking West at Warren's Point
12 x 16
(no charge for shipping)

The incoming tide and changing weather are always factors to contend with while painting "en pleine air." Little things, like the tripod legs sinking into the sand, can mess with your perspective while sketching out the painting. Whoever wants this will also get a very nice wooden floater frame ready to hang.

I would love you to visit the studio to see this and other beachy works. The little beach paintings are going quickly. However, if you can't make it to the studio and your heart is already set, just reply to this post or purchase outright through Pay Pal with this colorful button:

Be sure to include the shipping address!

Rosy Island Sunrise #11 of 30

Rosy Island Sunrise


You may recognize the black bass weather vane atop the Cuttyhunk Island Historical Society. Painted this at about 5 am from a friend's cottage porch - still in pajamas. I can imagine this painting hung in a spot you look at first thing in the morning, as I painted it!

September Challenge #1/30

Dunes III

With the end of summer came an invitation to join another challenge - 30 paintings in 30 days. Not ready to put away my summer toys, I decided to revisit beaches I've been painting - in Rhode Island, neighboring Southcoast Massachusetts and Cape Cod, and DownEast waterfronts in Maine.

Labor Day weekend we sailed over to Westport Harbor, went ashore and explored the poison-ivied trail to the barrier beach. Where the two branches of the Westport River converge the scene is breathtaking - expansive and marshy and home port for the local fishing fleet. Popular with generations of painters, I will show some of my own oil sketches. Once I agreed (with myself) to join this challenge offered by my long-distance painting colleague, Leslie Saeta, I decided to paint all of the beaches I can possibly gain access to in the next 30 days.  Already stymied with days of heavy downpours this first week of September,  I'll be relying sometimes on photos and oil paintings I've been gathering for reference all summer. Dunes III is the latest in a series I began early in the summer. I love to see what emerges at a beach from fog and other inclement weather.
