Cape Cod as seen from space

Cape Cod From Space

This idea has been germinating in my head for awhile...to do a painting of Cape Cod inspired by the view from space. This worked up pretty quickly. I painted the abstract land shapes, roads, and lakes first, then I worked on the water. Finally adding the white sands and shorelines. I love all of that prussian blue!

I think may have to do some more of these. NASA.gov has some amazing imagery!

Making the rounds with "Fresh Clams"

My painting, "Fresh Clams" won an honorable mention in the Foxboro Art Association Fall Member's Show. Exciting!

This summer "Fresh Clams" was also in a show at my alma mater, Miami University (Ohio). There were 100 works in the show representing alumni from 7 decades! I was unable to attend in person, but the curator was kind enough to sent these images of the show to all the participants. It looks like a great show. Click on this link to see an image of all of the artwork in the show. A great variety of mediums and styles.

The Red Inn number eleven!

The Red Inn XI
12" x 36" x 2"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
SOLD

Yes-that's right. This is number eleven. I have painted this view of the Red Inn at this size eleven times. I have also painted this inn from different views and at several other sizes, but this is by far the most popular request. This painting will be on its way to a couple that recently got married at the inn in September.

The weather today is picture perfect. I hope everyone enjoys the nice long weekend!
