Corina, Corina, 16x20 acrylic on board


I'd been dying to paint my friend Corina forever, she's so elegant and self-possesed. Monday my friend Paula Villanova (who's my travel-painting buddy) and I invaded Corina's house and forced her to pose. This is just a first-pass, and I'll post the refinements later.

Pardon Gray 20x24 Oil

Accepted into the Art League of Rhode Island Associate Memeber's Juried Show!This is a scene from a local Preserve, called Pardon Gray. It's a beautiful space, former farmlands, with a distant view of, I believe, Fogland. The light is amazing here, and I liked that there were so many 'roads' you could take. I have been working on this one a while. I believe it is 'fini'!

The Kayaker (finished version)

OK, I fixed the reflections of the trees, added some depth to the water, highlighted the oars and enriched the back end of the kayak with bright red. Now I feel the peace of the moment on that warm summer day, and not the blustery freezing weather we have right now!

Bird Gossip, Oil, 10x20


This painting has a deliberate, unfinished feel to it. I wanted it to reflect the quickness of the sparrows' movements. They don't hold still, yet they seem to have a very 'social' quality to them.
