Shorelines

Hold My Hand

During an October heat wave, this was painted en plein air on Good Harbor Beach, where I was participating in Cape Ann Plein Air (Massachusetts). This was awarded Best Beach, the Joan Van Roden Memorial Prize.

Caulking the Lynx

On a rainy fall day in Gloucester, Massachusetts I painted this under (mostly) an umbrella, as part of the Cape Ann Plein Air competition. So inspiring to work to the rhythm of the caulker’s hammer. The painting was awarded Third Place.

The Salt Air

Every day of painting the ocean is different. Painted en plein air, and the title says it all.

Momentum

Hooper’s Island is gradually disappearing into the Chesapeake Bay, and taking with it a long history of Bay culture. This painting is based on a study painted at this magical place. While I was painting, a flock of glossy ibises flew over, a rare sight here. For me, this painting tells many stories of what’s happening around us.

Namaste

This painting has been in the works for many years, inspired by a month of traveling around India long ago. This oarsman on the Ganges River rowed me around at sunrise while I did some watercolor sketching in the boat, dipping my brush in the river for water. The Ganges is a holy river, a source of solace, a final resting place, a beautiful escape, a place of commerce and tourism….many things to many people.

Finding Lunch

Part of a continuing fascination with painting the surf en plein air, this time capturing a passing egret fishing along the shore.

Finding A Way

I often look across Chesapeake Bay in the morning and dream about the journeys of boats I see making their way up or down the Bay.

This painting has been selected for the Mystic International Exhibition in September 2017. Please contact the gallery for purchasing information.

Great Falls

On an early Spring day, I met up with an artist friend and painted to beautiful and energetic Potomac River as seen from the Virginia side.

January’s Light

Yet another lovely late afternoon painting on the beach. Time is limited while working en plein air (everything is constantly changing), but I love capturing the subtle shifts in light and color, and the energy and sparkle of the water. All while barefoot in the sand with birds flying around me.
