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.

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.

Hoping to see these outside soon!

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