Canvas Studies

I had been posting on Instagram about a series of canvases I had been working on. They were in part an idea for a friend's wedding and an exercise in loosening up at a large scale. I got a lot of great feedback on them so I wanted to share them as a whole. They … Continue reading Canvas Studies

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

‘The Wave Falters’, at Nantucket Christmas Stroll

Thrilled to finally assemble this new painting this weekend titled, "The Wave Falters". It is a larger piece, at 21"h x 30"w, but  I was fascinated with the texture and translucency of this shot so having a larger scale to work with was key. The piece is comprised of 3 layers of clear acrylic paneling that is … Continue reading ‘The Wave Falters’, at Nantucket Christmas Stroll
