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.
Deep, lush greens spilling into a sunlit mountain stream. A rock here and there. These are the elements of my most recent oil painting, “Oasis.” 40×30.
Another in my ongoing “I’ve-been-missing-the-ocean” series of ocean-themed paintings. This one called “Raging.” 36×36 oil on canvas.
I’ve been missing the ocean during this time of Corona-related travel restrictions. The next best thing is painting ocean scenes. This one I’m calling “Breaking,” intending to capture the “motion of the ocean.” 40×30.
Another butterfly-featured painting, this one 18×18 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.
Sometimes, all you have to do to find answers is to be still and listen. Often, nature provides a calming soundtrack to do so. This painting was inspired by a recent contemplative walk through the woods where I happened upon this tranquil setting. 36×36 oil on canvas. (SOLD. Thank You!)
An appropriate title, given these global pandemic times, for this chaotic ocean scene. Waves thrashing and crashing into one another out in mid-ocean (no social distancing out there). 36×36 oil on canvas.
From a photo I took during a trip last year to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. A bright and cheery painting for these less than bright and cheery Corona quarantine times. 30×40 oil on canvas.
