Sakonnet Point Road, acrylic, 16x20

Here I was intrigued by the sun on the road. All the colors you can make it in your mind's eye. Once again, my BACK was to the water! Beach roses in bloom... you can just stand there and drink in the perfume!

Hanging now in the Westport Rivers Show through September 10!

At The Waterfront, Hull, acrylic 14x18

This was done last week with Mary Sheehan Winn and Ros Farbush in Hull, MA. I stood with my BACK to the ocean and painted the area with the arcade shops (all closed up still). It has a 'Ros' feel to it, I think.

Bristol Museum, 9x12 oil

Painted plein air today in Bristol, and this is the back of the museum where we painted today. At least I THINK that's where we were! It was very beautiful, with this gorgeous house/museum and these black wicker loveseats with statuary and plants, and these amazing black and white striped outdoor curtains! So to photograph this wet oil painting I put it on the ground at home and the wind blew all these grass clippings and spirea leaves all over it! Hopefully when it dries I can just brush them off! I also worked on another, more colorful piece, which is only halfway done, I'll post it when it's complete.

Harry Loves Tulips, 12x16, Acrylic

Once again my Harry is the subject of a painting. He just LOVES flowers, and here he is sitting on the morning paper taking a whiff of the tulips (do they really smell?). I went for a stylized look here. Anyone who lives with a cat knows their preferred seat is whatever you're reading...
