Low Tide

5x7 Oil on Board

A rainy Sunday here- great day to clean out the studio and paint.  This is a scene off Barnstable harbor at low tide with spring still on the way.

Sandwich, MA Morning

8x10 Oil on Stretched Canvas


I caught a glimpse of this little side street in the early morning and love the play between the long shadows a d the bright sunshine on the faces of the building.

Scudder Lane

8x10 Oil on Panel.  SOLD
This is my first plein air effort for the summer!  I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday at a beach off Scudders Lane in Barnstable painting.  I return to this spot because it is quiet and private and just a great place to be.  The new Coulter easel is fabulous- lightweight, easy to set up, stable- perfect!  Can't wait to go again!

Beach Days

5x7 Oil on Masonite

 I played a bit with palette knife painting this weekend.  It is a different skill set, but great fun.  I am stretching a bit now, with larger pieces in the mix on my easel, new brands and types of paint, pre-mixing, limited palette.  It is easier to stay with what I know for results, but I want to move ahead.  In this little offering to the coming summer, I am eager to get outside and paint.  Hopefully many beach and seascapes ahead!

Ready for Plein Air

My new Coultaer easel arrived today!  I am so excited to take it out for a test ride.  My goal for the summer is to spend more time painting outside.  It is a challenge- - but a good one.  New work coming soon.
