SOLD, Free Street Portland, Littlefield Gallery, Winter Harbor, Maine

Thank you to Littlefield Gallery and to my new collector! A sunset painting of Free Street at the golden hour. Portland glows in a beautiful light at that special time of day, so fleeting and glorious. A lesson in enjoying the moment to the fullest.

SOLD Parsons Marsh 2, ETSY SHOP

Thank you to my new collector from my ETSY SHOP! I love the geometry of marshes and the ever changing colors. Low tide is my favorite and the challenge of painting the mud is fun. This is one of my favorite places to paint and there is also a beautiful beach. Please visit Etsy to see more available work.

SOLD "Pemaquid 26" and "Monhegan 13" NW Barrett Gallery, Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Thank you to NW Barrett Gallery and to my new collectors! Both were painted on location at two of my favorite painting places. I love to paint locations many times and try to find new discoveries each time. Every painting trip is a test of will, first to get out there, then to deal with the conditions of the day, and to make a painting. The most enjoyable part of this process is the on the spot decision making for each painting, what to focus on, and the time in each painting when almost finished and I say to myself,,,,time to make it a painting. To me, this means, taking all the elements that I have painted up to that point and making a cohesive whole before I leave the location. I much prefer to finish all my paintings at the location. I hope that you can visit the gallery in Portsmouth for the current pastel show!
