Let's Hear it for the Buoys

Let's Hear It For The Buoys

8" x 8"

Oil with palette knives


Are you singing that song from Footloose now? 

I love this colorful display of buoys and lobster traps that welcomes you to MacMillan Pier in downtown Provincetown. This painting will be on it's way up to the Red Inn for sale in April when they open up for the season. It's exciting just to start thinking about opening up for summer 2021 even if it's only still February.

The Seaport, Boston take 2

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessobord

6" x 12 x 2"


I painted another version of this for the holiday show at Zullo Gallery in Medfield. That one sold but the gallery director told me that someone else really wanted it so he asked me if I would paint another one. So of course I said yes.

Week 7 Be Ready To Share Your Best Work

It's week 7 and this week's challenge is to get your best work ready to share with those that ask. Don't be one of those people who scrolls around on their phone while others wait for you to find the right images. Have it ready to go in a folder or with a link and practice bringing it up! You will be so happy you did. And so will your audience.

Happy Valentine's Day from Bailey



6" x 6"

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Gessoboard

How can you resist this cute face? Bailey is the neighbor dog to my friend Danielle and she comes to visit them in their backyard almost every day. She wanted to have a portrait painted to give as a birthday gift to her neighbor. She asked me to make a print also so that she could have a copy for herself to enjoy as well.

I love painting pet portraits so if you have a favorite photo of a special dog or cat that you'd like to turn in to a one-of-a-kind piece of art, please send me an email. I'd be happy to recommend some size and price ranges for you.

And 3 boot paintings makes a series

Old Gringo Freedom Eagle Boots

10" x 10"

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Encausticbord


This is the third painting of boots and you know what that means? It officially makes it a series. These boots are so fun to paint that I have already lined up several more boots from that I want to paint next. 

Here is a process shot so you can see that I still used the orange ground color as with my other paintings. I tried a new technique with this pair. I painted on all of the different tones for the brown leather sections, then scraped some of it off which I think gave it more of the appearance of leather.
