Quiet Day on Squirrel Island - Pastel 8 x 10

Back to Maine for the summer! I have new paintings in the Celebration exhibit at Yarmouth Frame And Gallery llc. The show runs through September 28th and is co-hosted with the Royal River Conservation Trust. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Trust. It is a great show. I hope you get a chance to see it!

Corner Street in Obidos

Corner Street in Obidos, Portugal - Pastel 9 x 12

It had been over 20 years since I last spent time in Portugal. Much has changed with the amazing tourist boom taking place all over the country but  the medieval village of Obidos - though much visited - still holds its timeless charm. This lovely corner street scene away from the touristy main street was meant for me!

Sepia Evening

Sepia Evening - Pastel 9 x 12

Had a great couple of days in Aline Ordman's PSNH workshop at the Wild Salamander Creative Arts Center in Hollis, NH. I produced this painting that I wanted to keep working on but decided to go along with the class consensus to leave it alone. So, it is signed as is...

First Color of Spring

First Color of Spring - Pastel 9 x 12

Winters are long in New England and we long for any glimpse of color as the first sign of spring. The forsythia in my backyard is usually the first one to deliver.

Nature's Gift of Gold

Nature's Gift of Gold - Pastel 16 x 20

I photographed, cataloged or sold my last winter paintings. This last one is from an extraordinary 20 minutes of pure gold over our orchard after a storm. An unforgettable moment of pure beauty! 

Time to honor spring and paint color!

Frigid Air

Frigid Air - Pastel 11 x 14

I try to walk everyday, even in winter. I do make exception when it is 5 degrees Fahrenheit with a windchill factor of minus 15... It is wiser to take some quick pictures of the frozen landscape and paint it in the studio.
