Retreat #1

Here's #1 in a series of two, from the cottage on Cape Cod where I enjoy a one-week art retreat from time to time. No TV, just me, my paints, and Public Radio. And an open window, so I can listen to the sounds of... not much at all!

Here's an 8x8 oil on panel, inspired by my trips to Tuscany. Partly from imagination, this and the others in this series are meant to represent more of the feeling of a place than an actual place. These are begun by rolling paint onto the smooth wood panel and using the result as a jumping-off point for the somewhat dark, mysterious painting.

Small Cape, water view

Here's a 6 x 8 oil on panel of a lovely little house on Cape Cod, overlooking the bay. Today I hope to work on a slightly larger version of the same house.
