William St. Parking Lot, 7 3/4″ x 9 3/4″ , oil on panel
William St. Parking Lot, [DETAIL]
Happy to finally finish this piece. I started it over a year ago and must have repainted the sky more times than I can count. I must say I am happy with the composition and mood.
Big Sun, oil on canvas, 5″ x 7″
Big Sun [Detail]
One of the first things I do in a new studio is find exactly on the horizon where the sun rises and sets. It is interesting to watch as it shifts from one point to another; during winter, spring, summer and fall. I feel a sense of place in my environment having this knowledge.
This oil painting is on stretched canvas, unframed and self hanging.
Rise, oil on canvas, 5″ x 7″
This is another landscape study in the sun series.
blood red moon, oil on canvas, 5″ x 7″
The moon is sometimes referred as “blood moon” or “blood red moon” because during a full lunar eclipse the earth’s sunset reflects on to the moon making it a red or orange hue.
Cupola with clouds, 5″ x 7″ oil on canvas
Much of the inspiration for my landscape work comes from the wide vista I have in my studio. I can see much of downtown New Bedford and the neighboring town, Fairhaven. This small painting is of the New Bedford Whaling Museum‘s iconic Cupola during the day. It has become a subject that I paint and draw quite often.
