There were lots of great shots, so far, I have three 'Mercury' pieces which will all be in my upcoming solo show at The Lucky Finn which opens … Continue reading New series: Mercury

New Painting: Caught Inside

My most recent painting from my new series, Spindrift, is a 29x44" multilayered paneled acrylic piece entitled, "Caught Inside". As I've increased my scale and narrowed my composition, I am really interested in how the layering and scale starts transform the image. I've loved the movement and emotion that these big waves have been taking … Continue reading New Painting: Caught Inside

“Sunder and Spray” at Trinity Collection

UPDATE: This piece has been sold. This painting which I just completed is the largest I've completed yet. At 18"h x 44"w it has a great presence and I'm loving the detail and impact I can get at a larger scale. Entitled, 'Sunder and Spray', it's a wild wave breaking in different directions as it … Continue reading “Sunder and Spray” at Trinity Collection

New Painting: Rip Tide

As another Nor'Easter has blown through the South Shore, I thought it appropriate to share my lastest piece!  I was previewing this in Hingham during the Hingham Arts Walk before I finished it so I could show how the piece is created. I have since finished this frothy moment and am happy to share it with you! … Continue reading New Painting: Rip Tide

Layers Upon Layers: Art Onions?

I've been playing with some new images for an upcoming fundraiser at the James Library in Norwell. It's somewhat of an experiment for me, as the premise of the show is to use Instagram images printed and mounted on panels for an upcoming fund raiser in November. I like the idea of it so I'm … Continue reading Layers Upon Layers: Art Onions?
