Home Sweet Home

  Man it is great to be home! I have been working on some figure pieces which I can wait to share and hear a little feedback on. The inclusion of figures in a painting is almost the "fourth dimension" in a two dimensional image. 

  In the Meanwhile this piece above (Local Setting" 24x30")  is of a local scene on Orrs Island, Harpswell, ME. The sunset is an elusive hunt and a worthy opponent to even the most seasoned painters. If you would like a tip on sunset, i say go for it. Include logic and thinking later, make marks of value and most importantly temperature. Sort it out later with memory and the study.
