Two very recent paintings
"Supper Time" oil on canvas 14" x 14" $500.00
This is an invented scene. I was thinking about when I was young and walking home on a cold early winter evening. Sometimes there was very little sound or traffic in my little city, and the cold was beginning to sting my ears. Maybe a dog was barking down some side street, and the few windows that glowed with life made me wonder if anyone was going to be home when I got there.
"Valley Sky" oil on canvas 14" x 14" $500.00
I first started this painting in 2004. I was not happy with it, and there it sat in my burn pile. It rose to the surface last week and I saw something that made me want another go at it. Very little, if anything, is left of the original save the composition. I changed the light and re-invented the landscape. I was thinking about the background landscapes behind the formal portraits from the Renaissance. There is something Tuscan (and maybe even a little Dutch) about this Massachusetts happy-valley landscape.

Etsy? For Real?
Yes, for real... I have decided to give Etsy a go. I've never really tried to market my easel paintings beyond the occassional exhibit somewhere. I think I am making quality work, and given what I see on Etsy, I think my stuff is a cut above. We shall see if the market thinks so as well... so, that said,
Please visit my Etsy Gallery! Have a look around and enjoy yourselves. I'll be right over here if you have any questions...

Yes, I am still painting... mysterious abstracted squares with patterns and invented imagery...
but also enjoying this summer weather painting outside!
South From Front Porch
6" x 5" oil on 8ply ragboard
Clark Pond with No Clark
12" x 18" oil on 8ply ragboard
Three Old Friends
12" x 12" oil on Dibond
These last two were painted on the grounds of The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA as part of their Summer Family Day event. It was a good excercise for me to paint in crowd as I typically avoid people while painting.

For those of you who are not Facebookies, I have donated this painting to the Artspace Greenfield "Hearts on Fire" Auction tonight at Hope & Olive - 5:30pm
I made this painting a few years ago looking out the window of my studio directly into the morning sun down the Green River. It's really hard to get a good photo of this, there is a lot more going on in the dark hillside of trees than you can see here. It is 11" x 14" and is framed. This size usually retails for $600. The reserve bid is $200. If you want to benefit a great community resource, and own this painting too, feel free to email or call Artspace directly if you cant make it to Hope & Olive.... 413-772-6811 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks! Hope to see you there!

"Mind & Matter" @ Grappone Hall, NHTI Concord NH
The installation of Mind & Matter at Grappone Hall, NHTI Concord NH went smooth as could be. I am very pleased with how it all turned out. I was a unsure and a little apprehensive about installing into the curved the wall, but other than some small undulations to the wall, the system worked perfectly. I now hope the students will choose to meet "at the big brain."
