Still Life with Golden Vase

I find great joy in painting colorful still lifes in the wintertime. This was done from a photo that I took a year ago. Whenever I receive flowers I quickly set up a still life and photograph it so that I have many warm, floral scenes to work with in the dead of winter. This is a very small painting but it packs a lot of punch!

Path to the Sea

This is a favorite little painting that was done very quickly with a large brush to keep the energy going. It is a scene from Kittery Point, Maine at Fort Foster. That is a great place to paint because of the beautiful rocks and winding little paths along the shore.

A Pile of Pumpkins

I was at the local Agway Store to buy dog food and I saw their latest display of fall flowers and pumpkins. I could not resist this exercise in painting multiples. Out came my camera and I ended up doing several paintings. This is the first one.

Path to the Cove

This was a fun painting to do! I was experimenting with a new textured linen canvas glued to a birchwood board that my artist friend Stan Moeller gave me to play with. Trying out new surfaces is an excellent way to keep the creative juices flowing.
