Shacks by Night

Shacks by Night • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD 

Sometimes I just like to paint moody nighttime scenes.  Today was one of those days, so I chose my favorite fishing shacks for a subject matter.  I love the shacks in all kinds of weather & light.

Spring Tulips

Spring Tulips –  5×5 –  oil on canvas –  SOLD 

Spring is so close I can taste it!  And these tulips are a great reminder of that, even though we have a foot of snow in the forecast.  Mother Nature can be so cruel.  🙂

Spring Point Etching

Spring Point • 5×7 • etching • $45

My first etching on my press!  :-). I actually worked on the copper plate of this image in the fall & chickened out of printing more than a couple of trial runs.  Today I got my nerve up & printed a series of 8 of these.  They are all printed from the same copper plate on archival paper, but they vary slighty as they are done by hand–the beauty of printmaking!  The paper size is approximately 8×12.  They will all be signed & numbered (but weren’t ready for that at the time I took the picture).  I love Spring Point Light!

Spring at the Head Light

Spring at the Head Light • 4×6 • monoprint, oil on paper • $35

I just can’t get enough of the Head Light.  🙂  It doesn’t really matter at what angle you view it from, it”s just a striking Portland landmark.  So much beauty at Fort Williams.  Soon all of the snow will be gone & the grass will turn from brown to green & kite flyers will litter the fields–I am looking forward to that!

Comes sleeved on archival mat board/signed & numbered 1/1.

 Paper size is approx 7×9.

The Portland Head Light

The Portland Head Light • 8×8 • oil on canvas •SOLD

Spring is in the air, the days are longer & everything just looks brighter, which makes time outdoors even more special.  I took a couple of walks around the Portland Head Light recently in the late afternoon &  I was so inspired by the beauty & the light.  Here’s a painting of the Head Light from one of the dog walking trails.  I just love this place!


Oscar • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I got a late start in the studio today & haven’t finished a daily painting yet, but here’s a recent painting of an adorable border collie for you.  I love the head tilt & bandana.  Woof!

March Sunrise

March Sunrise • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

It’s hard to wake up early after springing the clocks forward, but this morning I was up before dawn & had to wait for the pups to crawl out from under the covers.  Once they made their way down the stairs, I bundled up & headed out to catch this gorgeous sunrise over the snowy Eastern Prom.  Mother nature never disappoints!

The Morning After the Storm

The Morning After the Storm • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

The blizzard hit hard yesterday!  The snow came down 2-3 inches an hour for awhile … it was insane … but thankfully we woke up to pure sunshine today.  I wasn’t able to go for an early morning walk with the pups because it meant climbing a 6 foot mountain of snow just to get to the street & they weren’t up for that.  Instead I shoveled a path to the street, came in had breakfast & then we all headed out for a walk around the neighborhood.  I love strolling the hood after a storm … it’s fun to walk in the snow covered streets & take in the brightness of it all.  Here’s a view looking down O’Brion Street to Spring Point.  Love this view!

Mean Girl

Mean Girl • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

This is Chickpea, the mean girl of our house.  She is sassy & territorial, but also so sweet & cuddly.  She follows us all over the house & cuddles next to me all night.  She also keeps all of the other pets in check with her strong personality–chickpea takes no crap!  🙂
