The painting "Weather Beaten" above is part of my new series of dinghies and skiffs. With beautiful August weather providing wonderful light and reflections, I've been exploring the coast again to find new resource material to paint these colorful subjects. I find the boats full of personality, reflecting the fishermen who ply their trade or the weekenders enjoying their time off. The current collection of paintings in this series is shown on the New Work page.
The painting below, called "Wild Harvest", was featured on all of the promotions for this year's Yarmouth Clam Festival. Thanks to all my friends and fans who stopped by my booth during the festival, July 15-17, and to the many collectors who purchased my work. All three paintings of this clammer have now sold, but I am working on others, and they will be posted on the Marshes & Inlets page as they finished.
As a summer showplace, the Old Post Office Gallery in Georgetown, Maine, will be open until Labor Day. I share this exhibit space with four other local artists: Judy Conlan, Marijke Damrell, Cory Hart, and Denise Rankin. Work by guest artists Dahlov Ipcar, Jack Schneider, Morgan Hart and Lyndon Babkirk is also available. The gallery is open from Wednesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Here is one of my paintings, called "Backwater", now showing there.
My primary year-round venue, Centre St. Arts Gallery in Bath, Maine, opened a new show on July 3, exhibiting the varied work of 20 Maine artists. During the summer, the gallery is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
For the complete list of my shows in 2016, see the Exhibits page.
