NEW Commercial Street in Provincetown painting

Busy Commercial Street
18" x 24"
Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord

I had painted a smaller version of this painting last year and decided to try my hand at a larger version this year. It was fun to get a little more detail in the people and buildings at this larger size. 

I decided the best approach to painting this scene was from top to bottom and took some photos along the way after each session. You can see my sketch and usual orange toned background. Lots of the orange is peeking through at the end which I enjoy.

This painting will be available at the red inn in June once it's dry.

Meet Ozzy : : a new pet portrait commission

8" x 8"
Oil with a palette knife on board

This portrait was done for the highest bidder of a pet portrait commission I submitted for the silent auction event we held for Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism at the Artists Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place. Kathy was the lucky winner and she was excited to have a portrait painted of her cute dog, Ozzy.

A collection from a collector

My friend Haydi recently hired an interior decorator to help her redo her place, and the decorator decided to group her collection of Gorbett paintings together in the entrance hallway. I love when people send me photos of my art in their home. I think they look great together.
