Please check out the 2018 Calendar of Artists of the Seacoast at

My painting "Awaiting the Next Season" is the March image.  All proceeds from calendar sales benefit Families First,  a health and support center serving the seacoast area of New Hampshire.


Four of my oil paintings are included in a juried three month show at The Gallery at 100 Market Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Check out this venue on four floors of commercial space in the downtown area.



Check out my Italy series of five oil paintings at The Clown Gallery in York, Maine on Route 1,  just off the York exit to the turnpike.  These paintings were finished in my studio after my trip to Tuscany and Umbria a year ago this past May. You can also enjoy wine and art at the monthly wine tasting at The Clown the second Friday of each month.

Back from a week at Chateau de la Napoule in southern France,  painting plein air with a group from Maine College of Art.  Multiple layers of experience and joy in the beauty of this area, the people of Provence, and the connections made with art and the people who participated.

My goal was to get some oil studies and photos from which to work once I returned home.... studies of large shapes and color pushing towards the abstract.  That goal was realized and accompanied by an experience of sight and emotion hard to express in words.
