This was painted during a "paint out" with the Connecticut Plein Air Painter's Society, a group of artists that get together to paint various locations throughout the state. I don't mind painting among curious on lookers, while some artists choose to put on their Ipods to avoid conversation, I enjoy answering any questions and hopefully inspiring new artists to get out there. Plein air painting is a much more spontaneous process than studio painting and gives the feeling of ultimate freedom. I hope to inspire others to give it a try!

Oh, Monhegan, Monhegan! What a beautifully wild landscape full of fishermen, poets and artists. This is my kind of vacation, one spent in a place caught in the timeless simplicity and charm of a bygone era. Only one short week was hardly enough and the painting possibilities hardly tapped into. I'll be back… Continue reading… 0 comments

This is a scene of the potting shed that adjoins the Historic Hart House in Old Saybrook, CT. It was painted during a paint-out with the Shoreline Plein Air Painters Group. The back garden is a botanical eden and a terrific place to walk, contemplate or... PAINT ! It's worth the stop if you are ever in the area as well as is a tour through the grand old house itself. Although it rained lightly for most of the day, I was quite comfortable under the cover of my easel umbrella… Continue reading… 0 comments

I used to be a part of the Noma Gallery, an artists cooperative, in the North End of Middletown a few years back. Once a month we hosted Friday night art openings for the gallery artists featuring their latest work. We featured different local musicians for each opening and had attracted quite a following. The shows had different themes, so the work was always fresh and exciting plus it got us going in creative directions we may never have taken. This piece, the Harbor Park Restaurant on the Connecticut River, was painted for a 4 person show that I was a part, called "Seize the Moment". We painted local area scenes while enjoying interaction with the community, as well as, experiencing the excitement of capturing a variety of new places… Continue reading… 0 comments

Painting in Clare was an experience that will stay with me forever. I stayed at an artist friends ancestral cottage on the coast road in Fanore for a few weeks, a cottage not modern by any means but oh so charming. Although there was no washer or drier, the cottage was equipped with twin cane rockers nestled near the fireplace and had lots of peat to burn and books to read! There was a separate bath house accessed by a slug lined path, for morning and night visits, and the room itself fit with skylights as well as a spring-fed toilet. What more could you ask for? Painting views? Turn 360 degrees and there you have views of a dune lined coast, Galway Bay and the Burren… Continue reading… 0 comments
