Just Playing


Every now and then (it should be more often) I give myself permission to just fool around with paint and not worry about the next masterpiece.  Here I'm just playing with another Seine postcard scene near Notre Dame.  6x8 inches, oil on linen panel.

Negative Spaces on a Wonderful Day


The afternoon was cold, raw, and overcast, but I still went on a walk at Field Farm with my sketchpad intending to draw something.  I stopped at this mass of tree trunks framing more tree trunks.  Drawing furiously, I focused on the negative spaces keeping with the mood.  When done, I kept walking noting that it was a wonderful day. 9x12 inches, pencil on paper.

From The Center


The Hopper and Mount Greylock from the center of Field Farm in Williamstown, MA.  The pine tree, which I use as a "repoussoir" to set off the background, is usually inaccessible, due to tall weeds and bramble bushes.  But I found a recently made wide path to it, presumably mowed for cross-country skiing this winter. 9x12 inches, oil on linen.
