Before the Rise

Before the Rise 12"x12"

Today is the day.. Ive decided that for at least the winter months (summer is SO busy) I will attempt to consistently post work here and connect collectors to my work thru the popular online Art auction site Daily Paintworks. You can click the on the link in the upper right hand corner of the blog to preview the work or follow the auction. Fair warning, this link is invisible if looking at the mobile site.

Some Flowers are Sunflowers

"Some flowers Sunflowers" on location Thomaston ME 2014

It is Freezing in my studio this morning! I could almost hear the computer creak as I hit enter on my website bookmark. I've turned the heat up to take the ice off the windows and get some clean light in here for painting. I'm not sure if the build up of ice on the windows is cause I'm across from the ocean or what.?. Anyone know? So as i take the skins off yesterdays paint and look for some photo references and inspiration I came across this image. I posted it on my Instagram earlier this year and being a great day and the type of image that i love seeing other painters post, i thought i'd share it here with you.
