Clouds over Mashpee

This is a larger painting ( 30" x 48") I did this weekend in a new larger gallery and studio space at Patriot Place in Foxboro, MA. It's a view from a cottage I was staying at in Maushop Village in Mashpee on Cape Cod this Summer. The view is always big and spectacular—I tried to capture that as best I could!

Nantucket Island En Plein Air

Last weekend was a productive and fun time in Nantucket. Well, the productive time was fun too. A group of us painted outside on Nantucket Island and were lucky to have beautiful weather. That group would be the Neponset Valley Artists. Here's a couple of paintings I did. The one with the blue boat will stay with one our very generous hostesses. That's Ann Gorbett, renowned palette knife artist extraordinaire, also known as my wife.

Cap'n Jack's Wharf and MacMillan's Pier in Provincetown

Here are two new paintings I just finished of iconic sights in Provincetown on Cape Cod. Went on a RoadTrip to the Red Inn to hang these this weekend and had a nice time taking in the Summer in Provincetown. Summer is moving fast here in New England...

"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.
