Hudson Nocturne

This is a night-time painting I did at the site of the old Brass Anchor restaurant which burned down last year. The marina was relatively empty, although I eliminated all the boats except the one up on supports on the gravel berme which forms the mouth of the harbor. The moonlight and the single boat emphasized the loneliness of the scene which was what most impressed me about the place.

Gloucester Boatyard

Here's a painting I did in Gloucester last summer from Rocky Neck looking towards Gloucester cathedral. I painted it plein aire at 24" x 36"- pretty big for one shot, and then refined it a bit in the studio. Painting this big outside is quite exhilarating. It makes you feel like your really living the artist's life! Cape Ann is one of my most favorite of all places to paint.

Wallkill River

I've just finished this painting of the Wallkill River for a client. Their beautiful home is situated on the banks of this river and the painting is destined to hang in a room with a large bay window that overlooks the river.

Sedona Red Rocks

Just finished this scene of a moonrise over Red Rock butte in Sedona Arizona. This painting measures 32" x 48" and was made from a plein aire sketch done on site.
