Merry Red Christmas

The Red Inn From The Road

8" x 24"

oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord


There is nothing more Christmasy than a red inn on the coast. Except of course, if you add some snow.

Those of you who have followed my blog for awhile will recognize this as a familiar painting. This was a commission and the 38th time I've painted this beautiful place in one form or another. But this was a new size canvas for me and I really liked it. 

Happy Christmas to all! I hope Santa brings you everything you wished for.

Entering Boston

Entering Boston

12" x 12" x 1.5"

Oil with palette knives on Blick Studio Artist Panel


I have done many of these Entering signs before for various Cape Cod towns-Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet, as well as one for Foxboro. Now it was Boston's turn. I wanted to have this as my anchor piece for the collection of 10 Boston paintings I completed for the Zullo Gallery's holiday sale, 

Here is a photo I took of them all together before I delivered them to Medfield.

While it would be really difficult to hang them on the gallery wall like this, I really liked how they look all together, especially with the different panel depths giving them dimension. As someone on Facebook described it, "I feel like I just took a nice walk through Boston on a clear day." 

I love that!

The Seaport, Boston

View from the Seaport District, Boston

6" x 12"

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord

SOLD at Zullo Gallery, Medfield

This was the last of the 10 paintings I completed for the Zullo Gallery holiday show. I struggled with how much detail to put in to the buildings in the background but I think I ended up in a good place. This walk around the Seaport is great to do during your lunch hour on a beautiful sunny day in Boston. The boats coming in and out are fun to watch too.

60 Beacon Street

60 Beacon Street

12" x 6"

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord

SOLD at Zullo Gallery, Medfield

I've painted this beautiful brownstone on Beacon Hill many years ago on a much larger canvas (click here to see that version) and I so enjoyed it that I wanted to paint it again smaller for a small works holiday show. There were a lot of windows to paint but the most fun was painting the window boxes with the pretty flowers.
