Artwork: Oils and Pastels, landscapes, waterscapes and still life
I enjoy painting as it offers to me an opportunity to share with others the beauty and drama of life, as I see it. Now retired, I am able to devote more time to painting in oil or pastel, en plein air or from a studio. Having spent summer and winter vacations in Maine most of my life, I have been inspired by its beauty in all seasons.
Maine and all of New England are my principal areas of interest whether it is the inland lakes and mountains, farmlands, the coast, or its people. It is the play of light dramatically affecting the color, atmosphere and mood of a scene that draws my attention to it. My challenge is then to convey to others, through my painting, what I felt, the story it may tell, and my inspiration.
