Beachwalkers


Oil, diptych, 2- 6"x 6" panels

I don't usually paint diptychs so this was a fun challenge. The question now is, frame them together or frame them separately? I'm thinking separate, using floater frames to show up to the edge of the panel.

Cows by the ocean-sold

Oil on panel, 5" x 7"

These cows in Little Compton, RI have it pretty good- free range, hay fed, with expansive views of the ocean.
Having visited Puerto Rico two years ago, I'm really stunned at the news of the devastation caused by  the latest hurricane. I will donate the entire price of the painting to relief there.

Sunset

Oil, 9" x12"
The sky was really interesting on this particular evening so I got in my car and hunted for a good spot to observe the sunset. As is often the case, I ended up on Veterans Memorial Parkway in East Providence, not far from home.
I'm celebrating- this is my 1004th blog post!

Green

Gouache and pencil, approx. 7.5" x 5.75"

 When I parked in front of the library, across the street from this house which I wanted to paint, I thought I'd be inconspicuous. Cars are constantly coming and going from this spot. I was wrong, though, the woman who lived there saw me staring at her house and came out to ask me why. It's too bad that it looks like you're casing the joint when all you want to do is follow your muse! Fortunately she seemed quite happy when I told her I was an artist and showed her my sketch, and no cops were called.
