I finished up two pieces today that I had started on a trip to Camden last month. This is a view of Rockport Harbor, Maine, former home of Andre the Seal. The painting is done on a surface that I prepare with a texture of pumice. I'm loving the new look of this surface. For more information see the landscape page.

I just returned from an art filled trip to New York City where I spent some time at MOMA and the Art Students League. There is a wonderful show at MOMA "Tangled Alphabets" if you have a chance to go in and see it. This painting was completed on one of my painting excursions to Boothbay Harbor before I left.

This is a pretty subtle painting but I think it shows up fairly well here. I'm having fun playing with the textured surfaces which I create with pumice medium and then use as a base for the pastel. For more information on this painting click on the landscape portfolio link.

I've been traveling and not able to post these paintings as I had planned. So NOW I'll get them posted in the next few days before we take off again. This piece was painted in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. You can see it at the Art District by allen david Gallery in Boothbay Harbor which will be open weekends now until Memorial Day, open daily after that. For more information on the painting click on the landscape portfolio page.

I must say I haven't posted anything for quite awhile. But I have an excuse. I've been framing and matting and framing and matting. Not my favorite activity but the reward is I have several new pieces to post over the next couple of days. I titled this piece Ocean Point #1 because I know I am going to be painting a lot more at Ocean Point (near Boothbay Harbor) this year which will eventually produce a series. This piece was painted a couple of weeks ago and it was just such a wonderful day at the water's edge. More information on this painting if you click on the landscape portfolio.
