NEW Lifting Fog
My favorite view of Acadia National Park is late AM on a fundamentally sunny day as the morning fog lifts to reveal warm coastal rocks and purple shadows. There is also reflected light and boundless detail, some of which I had to remove to strengthen the composition. The blocking contained full-strength colors, which I modified very slowly in order to preserve the emotion of the scene.
Oil on canvas, 16" x 20". $2,500.
NEW Beach Family
I caught this beautiful group of children as they were completing an exploration of Paine's Creek Beach in Brewster, MA at low tide. An overcast sky allowed for highlights in some areas (the beach) and not in others, allowing me to accentuate certain aspects of the composition over others. Halfway through the painting, I removed other subjects that we're gathered on the beach so the viewer could focus on the children and their chaperone. Oil on linen, 24" x 30". $2,800.
NEW Acadia Morning
This is the latest in a series of paintings of Acadia National Park in Maine. My daughter took this photo, balanced precariously on an adjacent rock. The day's first light struck waves and ledge with warm energy.
Oil on canvas, 11 x 14, $1,200.
NEW Sea Spray II
A moody painting of Acadia National Park in Maine. Painted primarily in mid-tones inspired by the variety of granite that covers the coast. The few highlights are created with light pinks and browns to keep the painting rich with drama.
Oil on linen, 24" x 30". $2,800.
Sea Spray I is an 11" x 14" color study of the same subject.
Stand of the Tide
I explored this jetty in Brewster, MA from one end to the other at low tide, as the sun played hide and seek with storm clouds. The Burnt Sienna color in the sand and rocks picked up a violet hue when the light was blocked.
Oil on linen, 18" x 24", $1,800.
Odiorne Ledges
Late day sun pours rich light across this outcropping at Odiorne State Park in Rye, NH. Purples define shadow detail as light ochres and crimsons pop mid-tone and highlight areas. Oil on canvas, 16" x 20", $1,800.
Ebb Current
I spent the good part of an afternoon walking the beach with my wife, Beth in Brewster, MA. The tide had just receded, revealing soft green sea grass and brown waterways. Here and there the sun broke through to add sparkle to this otherwise subtle scene. Oil on linen, 24" x 30", $2,800.
Cliffs at Sand Beach
My children used to explore these cliffs at Acadia National Park when they were young. On this day, the rocks and sea were moody, stirred up by a recent storm. Winner of numerous awards, and accepted by Oil Painters of America for their 2017 National Exhibit. Oil on canvas, 18" x 24", $2,500.
