Five Seasons a Year and Show Announcement!

Five Seasons a Year 48x60"
Finally!! I can put out some high quality images of what I've been working on.  This piece "Five Seasons a Year" 48x60" is the center piece of my half of the two person show "New Works" with Abbie Williams  , opening this Saturday (June 28) at Maine Art Gallery in Kennebunk. I enjoy Abbie's love for color and subject, I think our work will hang great together and can't wait to see it up and lit nicely like this gallery does.  Thank you Maine Art and Abbie! See you Saturday.

Well its a goal right.?.

  I have been occasionally adding a small piece or two onto my ETSY store. These recently added pieces have been smallish works, oil on Arches Oil paper. One sold before this post was even up.. Thank you!

I have been having fun getting the warm and cool variations of the intense colors of the can to work. Hope you enjoy!

Scooter Dogs and the Return of Color

Scooter Dogs 26x36" available at Camden Falls Gallery

Scooter Dogs Detail
One of my favorite parts of the summer season is the return of businesses like Scooter Dogs and getting to paint all that fun color. I was very fired up to paint the battle of "loud vs quiet color harmony" that is represented by the foreground and background in this piece.

If you're in Rockland and want a fun way to tour the local coast see Marty at Scooter Dogs. Tell him i sent you and he will most likely not give you a discount but tell you of all food I buy from the local Vietnamese food truck, "Pho Sizzle".
