Babbling Away

Sometimes, I tell myself that whenever I leave someplace special — be it the beach, the mountains or wherever — that place ceases to exist once I’ve left. It somehow makes my leaving it behind a bit easier. Of course, I know the waves keep rolling up onto the beach, or, as in the case of this recently completed painting, the brook keeps babbling away. 48×36 oil on canvas.


I’ve experimented with something a bit different for me: two canvases side-by-side to extend the image over both. Each painting works individually, I think, as well. Inspired by a trip to the Maine coast, which has served as inspiration for many of my water-themed paintings. Each canvas is 30×40.
