El Torreón y las Olas

This fort, built in 1649, sits right on the channel into the harbor at Cojimar, Cuba. I painted a small study on location, then completed this larger painting in the studio, after several re-workings. It was a moving place to paint, listening to the guitars and singing of local talent and smelling the salt air and the warm stones.

Currently on view at Crystal Moll Gallery in Baltimore, Maryland.



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.

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.
