IMG_3776Hi all –

Seriously, 2 blogs? what was I thinking? It’s time to combine both of those blogs (this, the informal chatty space that covers my evolution from daily drawing back to oil painting and the more business-like page  )

So please go to for a look at my new and old work and learn where my paintings can be seen.

Experimenting with Acrylics

An evening in the studio with Golden acrylic paints – on gessoed paper. Exploring the materials, hoping to connect with it in some way. 

Rainy Boston Sunday

Beacon.FairfieldToday in Boston, we have flood warnings but all I dealt with was intermittent drizzle. I’m working on getting the hang of painting the local buildings.Seems flat – none of the depth of vista’s. Doh! Will need more work. This is a 10×10 oil paint on canvas looking at the corner of Fairfield and Beacon Streets. Ambivalent about scraping it down.

Postcard: from a Boston alley

Postcards are quick, small (6×6) and maybe a little abstract. I’ve painted them in the countryside, now to try the city.  


Little treats

a tasty handful of chocolate eggs – thanks Elissa. Oil on linen 6×6. All gone now. 


So I had a Disney moment this morning. 

  On the Esplanade in Boston’s Back Bay. 12 inch square oil on canvas.    


Off The Wall at Danforth Art

Charlestown Morning


24x20 inch oil on canvas

Damming The Charles

I’m very happy that two of my paintings – Charlestown Morning and Damming the Charles have been selected for the annual Off The Wall juried exhibition at Danforth Art in Framingham, MA.

Can’t wait to see the exhibit this summer, open from June 7 – August 2, 2015.

River work


Back to the Charles River, and I wasn’t sure Spring would ever arrive. This is the iconic Longfellow Bridge now undergoing massive rebuilding. While the view shows Back Bay, the bridge connects East Cambridge and Beacon Hill. This was painted over 2 mornings.

Spring Hopes – Daffodil

6 inch sq stretched linen

Hoping to see these outside soon!

A bit of green with all the white

Here during an exceptionally snowy February in Boston I’m working on still life paintings.

What’s on the nightstand?
