In the Thick of It

10 x 12 Oil on canvas board
Now I really feel like I need to escape into these paintings, as winter has geared up here in Maine. Wind chills with gusts up to 45 mi per hour, for the second time this week, and 2 feet of snow. Hard to believe this garden happens here in the summer. I'll dream on.........

Around the Bend

8 x 8 Oil on gessobord
I have had this photo that I was compelled to stop and take, for a long time. I loved the clouds and their position. I am glad to have finally gotten around to paint it!

Key West Yellow House

8 x 8 Oil on board
Here is the second in my Key West House series, my continued quest to escape winter. It is working a little in that it I am daydreaming and feeling the Key West vibe, but it is only making me want to go there more! Nothing wrong with that.....

Key West Green House

8 x 8 Oil on board   SOLD
I spent some time in Key West, much of the time riding my bike, exploring all the side streets and admiring all the colors and plants and architecture. Now I am spending time there, but only in my mind, painting the experience and trying to imagine being there! It's only January, but I feel the need to escape the winter, way too early. There is a lot left to go.....

Little Coastal Sketch

5 x 7 Oil on clayboard
I tried oil on some clayboard samples I had. It is similar to gessobord, anybody know if there is a reason they don't list oils as a medium for these boards? It seemed to work ok for me.
