"Red Inn Tide"— series in a series

This is the third painting of a series of the Red Inn in the series of the Red Inn series, if that makes sense. This is my newest minimalist approach to painting — less application of paint, more intention, more truth. Excuse me — I'm still working this out. I was thinking it's a cognitive approach — fractured memories of an event. How much do we really retain or see in a visual experience?

The Red Inn Frame of Mind

This is an ongoing series I do (and also my wife Ann Gorbett) of The Red Inn in Provincetown on Cape Cod. It's a very popular destination in the good-weather season of New England. We show our work there and have done "many several" depictions of the inn. I am never bored of painting the building because there is always something new to explore and find—this is a very nice thing when doing a series.

Rocks and Water... emerged and submerged

Interesting title? This painting is a kinda' experiment or exploration. I used different references but mostly did it from my head. I've been playing with rendered images, or at least representational somewhat, with flat surfaces. I believe the brain fills in the blanks... I"m still working on this idea and will hopefully be able to explain this "phenomena" more concisely, soon enough. I do realize I didn't come up this.

Rocks and Water at Hermit Island, Maine

This one is from a trip to Hermit Island in Maine last Summer. My wife and I were scouting campsites and came across great views from various campsites. It would be nice to study and paint the changes in light and color from the same location for a few days next time.
