A brief review of 2010

"Shore House" Salt water farm near Castine. 7.5"x22" Watercolor

This past summer found me with my show on the road. I did regional art shows from Portland to Bar Harbor, selling paintings and even winning a 1st Place in Oils cash prize, and a purchase award. It was a lot of driving and hard work, but fun to meet and talk with fellow artists and customers in person. Between shows, through the Summer and Fall, I loaded my gear and my dog into my car and headed out to paint on locations deep in the woods and along the coast from the Mid-Coast area to Lubec.

Now we are all buried under tons of snow for the duration of winter. In the studio I've been working on winter scenes, but also contemplating those gorgeous days of summer by working from references gathered months ago. Seeing some of these beautiful new watercolors, nicely matted and framed, warms the walls of my studio and my heart just to look at them. Should you choose one to purchase for your own, I believe you will see the light, and feel the warmth of Summer days ahead, too.

I hope you enjoy looking through my 2010 collection of available paintings on my Watercolors page, and also New Works page. Perhaps you'll find that special one that you want to add to your collection.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information about a particular work, or to inquire about commissioning a painting soon.

Best Regards for a great 2011,
