Entering Keating

Entering Keating

Mike saw a painting I had done called Entering Sandwich and got an idea. He asked that I replace the town name with the name Keating. He was staying at his friends' home, the Keatings, in Falmouth and wanted to give them a gift. So he asked if I would paint the sign again, but replace the town name with the family's last name. It was an interesting idea and I do love a challenge!

The Path Home

The Path Home (Maynard Studio)

8" x 10"

Oil with palette knives on board


While visiting Ptown last June, this home along Commercial Street stopped me in my tracks and shouted "Paint Me." I later found out that this was the former home and studio of the artist Bill Maynard. It was purchased in 2020 and completely renovated. They did a beautiful job updating it while still maintaining the history of this cute home. They added the amazing garden in the front and back that help to complete the home's curb appeal. Here is a link their Instagram page that documents the entire process.

Olives or Twist?

This painting was inspired by a wonderful dinner we had at The Red Inn in Provincetown this past June. We were celebrating Polo's birthday and a friend offered to buy us a few fancy cocktails before our reservation. The weather was fantastic, and this view unbeatable, making everything taste even more delicious.

I hope you are enjoying a nice cocktail of choice on this lovely Friday.

I chose a simple white frame to finish it off. 

The new owner of this painting sent me a photo of the painting hanging in his outdoor pool bar. Fun!

New commission from an old family photo

Peg and Lorraine at Nubble Light

11" x 14"

As a birthday gift, Grace asked if I would paint from an image of her partner from a favorite family photo of her with her mother at Nubble Light in Maine. We debated about leaving the cigarette in her hand or not, but in the end we thought it was part of the classic feel of the image and of Peg's personality.

I love to paint from family photos so if you have one you'd like to turn in to a painting, send me an email at along with your image and I'll make some size recommendations along with pricing options.
