Some New Art!

 

That Old Stone Church

raising the barn and having a share of the bounty for which 
it was built. The painting is 15 x 30" and it is for sale.

Cape Cod, EEl Cove

 

Cape Cod, Eel Island

This is a rare application for me, per order of my client who wanted to 

 incorporate sea items into the painting so I chose to use acrylics.

which I haven't used in 30 years  If you look closely I've incorporated netting, small

wooden pieces, shells, rope and I textured the wharf. It is 24 x 36"!!!

8/24/20

Shown at the Rockport Art Association and Museum


Is "Northshore" 18 x 24" and is 
a painting that started on location and finished
in the studio. It is framed in Gold Leaf but 
would look just as cool with a silver frame
it is up to the individual. 
Thanks for looking.

The Pride of Baltimore

The Pride of Baltimore in Boston Harbor
oils on canvas 28 x 40"
$5000.00

My friends and I went on a Harbor Cruise in conjunction with
 the tall ships parade where we saw ships from all over and where
I took pics of the magnificent view with Boston as the backdrop.
This is the 5th in the series of this studio work. As you know I've
done a great deal of boats in the harbors from life and I do not know
which I prefer better. Hope you are inspired to imagine days gone by
when ships was the way of travel before all others. Thanks for viewing!!

times to make a montage of what I saw in this beautiful spot.

Horticultural Heroes Exhibit and choice portrait samples


The Sharon Jordan Bahosh entry into 
this promising "have to see" exhibit
features works by a variety of artists
of a variety of Heroes:


My entry into the exhibit is John Chapman
also known as Johnny Appleseed. I used the
only known picture of him to create this portrait
and placed him in a mature apple orchard. The 
caricature is by an unknown but genius artist
which I think makes the perfect punctuation for my presentation.



This is "Randy one of my prize oil portratis.

The Boats of Boston, Gloucester and Martha's Vineyard

Hi Folks I am anxious to get out to paint on the harbor, today I am revisiting boats I've done en plein air and introducing you to the new studio winter work..."The Picton Castle Sails Boston"


"The Picton Castle Sails Boston" was conceived when I heard
the tall ships would be coming to Boston and better yet that
Spirit Cruise Ships provides a day of sail to view the 
parade of sail from aboard giving me an opportunity
to include the harborfront in my paintings as they were.
I am just finishing up a few more of this "in the studio
collection" until it's time to go out and paint en plein air. 
This paintingis included in the opening exhibition at the Northshore 


Presenting Plein Air Paintings Below



The Amastat is used as a training vessel and also as a party boat.  Here
when I painted this boat on location in Vineyard Haven Harbor
there were many people aboard about to set sail.
Sorry this painting was sold in 2017



"The Kalmarnykle" is a replica of a Danish ship from worlds ago. She 
is used as a training vessel and is docked here in Vineyard Haven. This was painted
in 2 consecutive day visits. If I could describe my exhuberance I would
but nothing compares to doing this and finishing it in 2 visits totaling 6 hours
Those of you knowing about plein air painting know that it is neccessary to
move on after a little while and come back to it, the sun has moved on
and has changed the whole picture until a visit again allows for completion.


 


This painting speaks volumns to me. I imagine the adventure, The triumps and challenges,
Here I am in the photo painting the "End of the Line" 20 x 24, a passerby who was enamored with
my work and hung around long enough for me to ask him to take this picture for me. I visited
2 days in a row to complete this painitng, since it was overcast I was able to work long hours
each visit. It is for sale.



The Shenendoah at home port in Vineyard Haven Massachusetts. This painting also 
done on location and is a private collection in Tisbury on the island of Martha's Vineyard.

on salt water. It was melting while I worked on this painting in one session,
Very invigorating! Private Collection

Tall Ships in Boston Harbor

Ready for exhibition are these two new works among the others that I am finishing


"The Oliver Hazard Perry Sails Boston"
oils on canvas   20 x 24"  Sold

This is one of the many vessels that I had the pleasure to see
up close and personal at the recent "Sail Boston 2017"
where about 50 tall ships and schooners sailed
by while I watched with my companions aboard the Spirit Cruise Ship
"The Odyssey" It was a grey day but I was inspired by 
the opportunity to put the harbor skyline as the 
backdrop of these magnificent and complicated ships.
Hope you will enjoy more of them as I go on to
complete the whole collection. Be patient though
it could take years with all the pictures I took.
I will also create combinations of sailing vessels
as I see fit to compose. Enjoy.



"The Europa Sails Boston"
oils on canvas 20 x 24"

From the Netherlands the Europa inspired me to create
it with the old and new buildings of Boston Harbor, 
The juxtaposition of the old and new ignites a
visual wonderment in my opinion, seeing old Boston
with the new and a ship built in the last century, so interesting!
And for me that's what I'm all about doing paintings that challenge
our imagination and appreciation of the past.
Hope you like it and look for the rest of my collection as I go along, Thank you
