These blog posts are where you will find updates on what I have been up to in my painting endeavors. I will let you know about commissions I receive for paintings and show you progress on paintings I am working on. I tend to use a realistic style, perhaps somewhat impressionistic at times. My subject matter includes landscapes, coastal scenes, maritime scenes and portraits of both people and animals.
The list of various animals I have painted is lengthy: lions, tigers (no bears, oh my), cows, fox, dogs, and birds such as parrots, egrets, pelicans, piping plovers, and ring-necked pheasants. I have also painted a number of horses, but also horses and hounds on fox hunts.
Then there is the architecture I paint if it is interesting. There have been a number of commissions to paint people’s homes, but I have also painted barns, stables, row houses and other buildings that catch my eye and hopefully yours too.
The maritime and landscape paintings range from cypress swamps to fields and pastures, beaches, and boats on the water. There are rugged New England / Maine coastal scenes to sandy beach scenes around the Chesapeake and the Caribbean. I have been commissioned to paint several boats and have done a number of boat or yacht paintings, both sail boats and power boats. Spinnakers are always fun because of the color.
I will also let you know when I have paintings in an art gallery or I take part in an art show.
