Shade Tree

Shade Tree, Acrylic on Canvas, 20"x16", $800
This painting of a large tree was done using a palette knife and fracturing.  I wanted to capture the feeling of the foliage on a bright, summer day. I love the broken color and varied textures.

Two Pines

Two Pines, Acrylic on Canvas, 12"x24", $750
This is a painting of Lake Champlain in the evening.  I love the last bits of color on the horizon after the sun goes down.  This painting was done using a palette knife on canvas.  I used just three colors (quinacridone crimson, Hansa yellow light, and phthalo blue) and white for this painting.

Strawberries, Watercolor, 7"x10", $300

This is a painting I did to submit to "Living Colors", a juried show of watercolor paintings by living artists. It got in and was exhibited at the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville, VT for the last couple of months. I don't do many watercolors anymore, so this was a real reminder of how carefully planned watercolors need to be (no going back in later with that extra patch of yellow you forgot.)

Also, my paintings, "Portrait of a Tree-Autumn" and "Fractured Onions" (pictures below) have been accepted into the "Shades of Fall" juried small picture exhibition at the Bryan Gallery.  That show opens on Sunday, November 10.  Both paintings (they are framed) are for sale.  To purchase, call the Bryan Gallery at (802) 644-5100 or e-mail them at
SOLD - Portrait of a Tree-Autumn, Acrylic on Paper, 6.5"x6.5"
Fractured Onions, Acrylic on Paper, 6.25"x6.25", $195
