I got to the beach and played in the waves the other day- yahoo!
Also, my painting class in Little Compton got off to a great start. Rain was predicted, but fortunately didn't materialize. It's a really great group- they even suggested having a crit with wine after the next class! Sounds good to me.

Rocks and waves-sold
We went painting at the beach the other day and I foolishly decided to paint rocks and waves. Talk about a moving target! Waves come and go and come; rocks get covered and uncovered and covered. It makes you really appreciate the powers of observation of maritime artists in the days before photography.
If you're interested in this painting, send me a bid.

Dinner at McFadden's- sold
This is a larger piece I finished recently. If you've ever been to this restaurant, you'll notice I didn't include the row of TVs over the bar (too much light at the top of the painting, when I really wanted to focus on the waitress and the diners). Makes it look like a nice place to just go and talk, doesn't it?
This painting isn't for sale right now- it's headed for a show in Philadelphia at the F.A.N. Gallery in August.

When we were out to dinner the other night I was struck by the late day light coming in and illuminating these two women at the end of the bar. The martinins and the red dress were an added bonus.

Afternoon at the Black Pearl-sold
The outside bar at the Black Pearl restaurant in Newport is a great place to hang out for a few hours.

The rose arbor
All the flowers this year are blooming about 2 weeks ahead of time, and I've felt like I'm playing catch up all spring. This rose arbor is in my backyard, and I got out and painted it the other day, while there were still roses on it. Once they're gone, that's it. I think I'm going to replace it with an everblooming variety in the fall.

View from Casey Farm
This is probably one of the nicest views in Rhode Island- looking across the bay toward Jamestown, with the Newport Bridge in the distance.

Oil on stretched linen, 6" x 6"
The weather this past weekend was fabulous. We went for a bike ride through the village of Wickford, where I spotted this little skiff.
