How in the world to I have the time to post this on Thanksgiving morning? I'll be hosting at least ten hungry souls. And speaking of feeding souls, painting is what feeds MY soul. This is one of a series of three, featuring the dead-end street where I live, on a late Fall afternoon.

Ode to Autumn

I've been working on EIGHT paintings, believe it or not. The larger panels I've started to use take much more paint and much more time!! Go figure!!

Here's a smaller one, 12 x 12, of an interpretation of the end of our road. 

"End of Nashoba", oil on panel. Available.

Gloucester, Massachusetts

One day I drove up to Gloucester to revisit the old paint factory, which was the subject of a painting-in-progress (will post that painting later).
Someone, somewhere told me that when you are photographing something to possibly paint, always turn around and photograph what is behind you, because that can be as inspiring as your intended subject!

Ah, Florence!

From my recent trip to Tuscany, here's a small view of a sunlit building at day's end. The luscious color of the building, typical of the beautiful city of Florence, compelled me to paint this early evening scene.8 x 10, oil on canvas.

A Conversation Piece

During a recent visit to New Orleans, I snapped some sunny photos of mostly architecture, but a few images of people on the street somehow sneaked into my camera. The shadows of the couple standing at the juncture of several different varieties of pavement was so interesting to me! This is a small canvas, 8 x 10, and I have just begun a larger version.
