As you have probably noticed, I have been focusing more on larger paintings and less on small daily paintings. My posts may be less frequent for a while, but I will post updates on works in progress when I think of it!
This is a larger painting- 24"x24"- oil on canvas
A grand old house around the corner from me that I always admire, and finally have incorporated into a painting. My desire was for the henna to resemble ivy growing up the sides of the house.

I am finally back to work on a new painting! Head colds really take the drive out of a person! I am happy to say that the school year is proceeding well though, and I am enjoying the cooler temps of fall (my studio is not 120 degrees!)
This is the beginning stage of a new painting of a church here in Belmont, MA- more to come...
Also, for anyone in the Boston area, we are having an opening Friday night at the Belmont Gallery of Art for the Belmont artist show- all are welcome and encouraged to attend- we have some real talent here in Belmont!

Trying to keep up with my blog- but right now I am working toward a deadline for an application to MacDowell. I am working much larger, so the photos are not very good- hard to shoot with even light and no glare! This is 2x4 ft- oil on canvas- and there is a second panel to be hung with this- I will post the professional shot when I get it. I am really enjoying this work- more to come soon!

OK- here is the beginning of a new body of work I am developing. I am, as some of you may have seen in the recent past, very attracted to old buildings- churches, meeting houses, barns, etc. This is an old town hall in Deer Isle, Maine. I have begun "tattooing" my paintings with henna like patterns. The surfaces of these beautiful white clapboard buildings is crying out to be decorated- beautiful graffiti, of a sort. Let me know what you think. I am working on a much larger piece as well, and will be posting it's development in stages.
