Summer Storm Clouds

Click Here to Purchase
I thought it was time for a little warmth. This was one of those hot summer days when the clouds roll over the sky, and the thunder rumbles, and the rain may or may not come down, and then suddenly it’s sunny again.

This is probably it for this week. I’ll be hanging my show at the Flat Iron Gallery tomorrow. If you’re free Sunday afternoon, come by and say hi! Reception is Sunday, March 2, 1-5:00.

Upstate, Late Winter

Click Here to Purchase

Here’s another large one. This is some out-of-the-way farmland just south of the Finger Lakes region, on a cold, bitter day, when the last of the snow was not in any mood to melt. Unless it sells in the next few days, this painting will be hanging in my show at the Flat Iron Gallery in Peekskill for the month of March. (Reception is Sunday; come on by!)

Cranberry Bog, Afternoon

Click Here to Purchase

My favorite ski run used to come down through the woods and end at the far reaches of this scene. They logged the woods last year, so we had to establish a new run down through the adjoining forest. It’s pretty, but not as thrilling and terrifying as the old one. A few people should know exactly where this is.

Half-Hour Portrait

This man has such distinct features. It was so interesting to see his square jaw and the way he knits his eyebrows reflected in the features of his sons.

And the baby brother! This was my first baby painting from life, rather than a photo. He was such a good-natured boy, which is why it worked. He sat in his high chair, with his sippy cup, and I painted in between sips, while his mom played finger puppets behind my head.

I just spent a lovely weekend visiting my friend Christa and was finally able to deliver her Christmas present—this painting done from a photo she took while hiking in Peru last month. I don’t usually paint places I don’t know firsthand, but I loved this little guy.

Red Tractor

Time for a little break from the snow. (Though I am loving painting snow.) This is a scene from my trip to Maine back in October. The farmer who was haying Louise’s field was taking a break in the afternoon. I had been eyeing his tractor for a couple days, so I took the opportunity to walk down off the hill and take some pictures.

Again looking south, this time from the path at the end of the marsh. I always like to stop here and watch the water rushing down into the culvert under my feet, and then out the other side, under the ice and on its way. I like to imagine who is alive under the ice, and who might be in the grasses and snow, waiting for me to leave.

Looking South

Email to Purchase

I’ve been working on some larger landscapes recently. This is another view of the cedar swamp, skiing home across the marsh in the afternoon. It’s always a nice, serene way to end a ski, after managing the dicey little hill down onto the ice without crashing or putting an eye out.

Unless it sells beforehand, this painting will be part of my upcoming show at the Flat Iron Gallery in Peekskill, NY. Opening reception March 2—save the date!
