Room with a view

Nantucket Morning

16" x 20" 

Oil with palette knife on board


I was lucky enough to wake up to this view a few years ago while staying at a friend's house on Nantucket. It doesn't get much better than this!

New CAT painting

Dancer III

24" x 18"

Acrylic with gesso


Here is the latest in my series of paintings under my pseudonym CAT. My technique here is fun because it gets me to loosen up a bit from painting with palette knives all the time. I first paint on a black canvas with colorful acrylic paints, then put a layer of this gesso on top. I then use the end of a paint brush to draw the figure which "carves" out the gesso and reveals the color underneath.

A little bit of autumn in the summer

World's End Hingham in the Fall

11" x 14"

Oil with palette knives on board


My friend Jeremy asked if I would paint from an image he took while visiting World's End in Hingham Ma. If you've never been, it is a beautiful place with lots of trees and views of the ocean. He was visiting in the fall and captured this scene of the light coming through the trees and the colorful leaves on the ground.

Five sisters

Bobbi's Family

11" x 14"

Oil with palette knives on board

Bobbi (the little blonde girl on daddy's knee in the painting) is the youngest of five sisters. She had this wonderful photo of her sisters and her mom and dad on the porch of her grandmother's house and she asked if I would paint it for her. The photo was black and white but I decided to "colorize" it. It was such fun imagining what the outfits might look like in color.

Foxy's Sign


2 sided, hand-painted sign

20" x 8"

Acrylic on wood

This is the third installment of Bill's tribute to Foxy, his beloved dog he lost a few months ago. He pictured a pub like sign in her honor that would display near his Provincetown pool where Foxy loved to hang out.

Here is a photo of my work in progress. I painted the two sided sign using acrylic paints and brushes (gasp) so I was a little rusty but it worked out great.

Here are Bill and Dan trying to figure out how the sign will hang off the poolside bar. Can't wait to see it finally hung!
