My Sister's Kitchen

14x10 mixed media
My sister has the most interesting flare for interior decorating. I just felt I had to do a painting of her kitchen. I painted her living room already and gave it to her as a gift. She is one of my biggest fans. This painting is done with a watercolor wash and pastels on top. A little funky - just like the kitchen.

Walking Path Near Massabesic

6x8 oil on board SOLD
Autumn is by far the best time to paint outside. The sun is lower in the sky (at least up here in New England), many of the leaves have fallen leaving bare trees (which I love), the sun is warm... I could go on.

Pine Trees and a Bush

6x8 oil on board SOLD
These trees are in my neighbors yard. There actually is a row of them. I have painted these trees many times. I love them when the sun hits them just right.

Silver Lake Cottage

8 x 6 oil canvas
Another rendition of Silver Lake. I'm trying to shake up my palette a little bit - use colors where I normally wouldn't.

Cottages on Silver Lake

10 x 8 oil on canvas SOLD
This was started the last hour or so before the sun went behind the trees. I took a photo at the time and finish it later.

Houses Next Door

14 x 11 oil on board SOLD
This was painted outside. There were alot of clouds, some rain, some sun. By the time I finished, it was late in the afternoon, but no clouds. So there was alot of changing shadows and light. I guess I was lucky to finish before dark.

Yellow Tablecloth

12 x 9 oil on board SOLD
This was done outside. It always feels like a mad race painting outside. Much got eliminated.

White House Off the Road

8 x 6 oil SOLD
I was attracted to this seen because of all the color that was going on in the field. There is now a huge church to the left of this little house in big woods and an expanse of pavement right behind it. You don't even notice the house. It takes you awhile to realize the house is still there.
