I paint landscapes. Mostly. Sky and Water and Sand. I work in oils and my canvases grow larger year after year. My plein air studies are usually done in pastel. Working outdoors ischallenging as well as rewarding. Though plein air is a smaller, summertime joy of mine, the work informs my studio work in large landscapes.
As a Martha’s Vineyard artist, the beauty of the island and the light that baths it work together to inspire my paintings. The hues of the changing windy skies and the turbulent, surging or, at times, calm ocean guide my work. There is a certain mix of blues and reds that make up the waters surrounding this island. There is a coolness to our skies to be seen at the edges of a sunset. With ever changing light, comes the ever changing possibilities of painting compositions.
My latest series, Space Walks, is taking me in a new direction. Acrylics. No brushes allowed. The result is a growing collection of abstract interpretations of NASA space photos. I’m loving the experience. It’s been a wonderful spiritual and intellectual adventure.
