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.

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

Finishing off the holidays?

Well, it’s about time.



Gorgeous day at Art in the Park

Charlestown’s City  Square was alive with art on Sunday, September 7 for the annual Art in the Park hosted by the Artists Group of Charlestown.  Lots of thanks to Eddy Lehar for all his help both with heavy lifting and sales while I was taking down the show at the Arboretum! A very successful day.

September 7, Arboretum exhibit comes down and paintings go to their new homes.

04.14.arboretumA bitter sweet day – the 2 LOOKING @ 4 exhibit at Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum had to come down. The past 2 years have been a wonderful experience, an endlessly intriguing place to explore and paint, and a wonderful group of people.

Thanks so much to the terrific staff who made it possible: Brett McNeilly is a power house, especially when it comes to hanging a show! and Maggie was so helpful at our presentation.

Another wonderful aspect of the day was sending paintings off to their new homes; to my collectors, may your paintings bring many years of joy.

Kathy and I are grateful.

Painting the visit of the Morgan to Charlestown Navy Yard

Its been a whirl-wind summer – and I’ve been a little slow to share. Here are the photos from July 18. 19 and 20, when I painted the whaler, Charles W. Morgan as she visited the Charlestown Navy Yard/ the Boston National Historical Park.

5 painters were privileged to paint at this event – many thanks to the National Park Service for welcoming us to this wonderful painting opportunity. Everyone we meet at the Navy Yard was so positive and helpful, it was truly a unique and fun experience.

What’s on the nightstand?
