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 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.

Goodness

The wonder of a coming storm, the mystery of where it will pass, the peace of a beautiful evening on Deep Cove Creek. This creek is muse and refuge to me and many other creatures of nature.
