Cafe This Way show is up!


All my art is currently showing at "Cafe This Way" in Bar Harbor, Maine.  I am very pleased at how this body of work came together.  Now I am working on a series of prints, a new facebook page for my art and many commissions.  

The Whole Shadow


 Many years ago, I was told that the Crow / Raven is among the smartest animals in the world.  One of the very few that has the ability to use tools.  Some cultures believe that a visit from a Raven is a visit from a departed loved one.  Whatever the case may be, I have been paying attention and enjoying them very much!

Peony in progress...

Yup, I think I have Spring fever.  I have been working on this one for two days.  I think I can finish it by the end of the week. 

My Chickens in progress...

This is the third time I have painted my chickens looking in from the deck.  It just makes me laugh every time.  It is so funny that they like to watch us as much as we like to watch them.  I guess I am the fish in the fish bowl :)

Magnolia in progress


Magnolias are one of the first bits of color we get in the spring.  I am very much looking forward to this sure sign of warmer weather!

Goat. Cheese. 6x6"

Don't they always look like they are smiling.

Lobster dinner. "In progress".


This painting is a 36x36.  There is a lot going on, so it is taking a while.  I am enjoying the puzzle-like process of painting the tablecloth and it's reflections.  I wonder if lobsters are "beautiful" to everyone, or if it is just to me and my fellow New Englanders.

Thomas Moser - Boston

I have a solo show at the Thomas Moser showroom in Boston!  Now through the end of September.  
This is one of the new paintings for that show "Gold Country" 36x48 oil on canvas.
It has been a busy year for me.  My website was just updated with all the new work.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Cherry Blossoms "in progress"

Hope to finish this one tonight.  Wish me luck.  I need to finish three this week!
