Neon Mountains, 8x10
I can truthfully say that these were the brightest trees I've ever seen. They just glowed. It was pretty exciting for someone from Florida. This is the first of my paintings from our artists' retreat this year. My group, Pieces of 8, goes to the mountains every year, and we hit it right at peak color this time. Glorious!

Homage to Hokusai, 8x10 Oil on Canvas Board
This is a nod to the great Japanese artist Hokusai, who created The Great Wave of Kanagawa in the 1800s. There have been as many reproductions of The Great Wave as there have been of the Smiley Face. This was the second in my series exhibited at the "Agua" show in Melbourne, Florida.

The Breakfast Table, Oil, after Sargent
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I couldn't stockpile many paintings to post before leaving for the Pieces of 8 artists' retreat, so I am reaching into the past. A few years ago the Pieces of 8 spent months painting copies of the masters as a learning exercise. This was my copy of one of my favorites by John Singer Sargent.

Sunset Bay, 6x8 Oil on Canvas Board
The sun was setting over Porpoise Bay and creating this beautiful color combination. It's quite a contrast to my last post.

Rock and Roll, Oil on Linen, 5x7
I never tire of painting water; whether it's wild or still or in between, it is a wonderful subject. This is another scene in Maine, seen from the cliffs.
