Color Block Series, Winter/ Spring

Icy Contrails and the Icy Marsh  36x48

 Snowy Big Marsh  48x24

Springtime Marsh   24x48
Maine is in a deep freeze at the moment. I have been spending alot of time walking and photographing the icy marshes. So cold but so amazingly beautiful. The colors in snow are infinite, this is the time of year when all I see is various shades of blue shadows reaching out across the land. Simply wonderful.
This Color Block series is a four season Sky, Marsh and Ocean, love note to nature. If you are interested in purchasing a Color Block painting, please send an email.

Color Blocking: The Marshes...

Color Blocking. Skies, Marsh/ Estuary. The dreamy almost undefined horizon and reflected colors are the magic of this series. The seasons, the light, the grasses and the tides are magical. I find that I always have something different to capture, every moment of every day. I am in love with this watery place and all of the Birdies who live there.

New Studio/ New Track of Work...

Estuary/ Ocean / Islands and Sky, Acrylic on Canvas 3x6
Wow. These past 4 months have been filled with moving, setting up a new Studio and just moving forward on many levels. Yay!
My new series is inspired by some of my favorite Contemporary Artists. Rothko, Diebenkorn, Hopper & Mondrian to name a few. Their unique sense of color and how they view the world interests me tremendously.
I have been working on this series for the past year and thinking about it in broader strokes for several years. It was so exciting to paint two in the series.
I am calling this track of work "Color Blocking".
A Contemporary look at the Natural world. The Sea and Estuaries, so far. Mountains and Birches are on my radar moving forward.
A life change can be some powerful mojo!

Encaustic " Edge of the Sea" Collection...

The Edge of the Sea...
This is part of a series I am dropping off at The Yarmouth Frame Gallery.
These were really fun and dreamy to create. I am using Antique Frames from the 1880's,
the effect is a bit surreal with the subject matter and medium!
This Exhibit opens on Saturday, August 3rd, 4-7 and hangs through the end of September.

Encaustic Sea Shells...

Summertime in Maine. Walking at the edge of the Sea is my favorite thing to do. I love to study the tumbled shells on the shore. So lovely and such a variation of colors and shapes.Today I am posting a collection of different Encautsic Sea Shells I have created. Some of these shells are available, others are sold but could easily be commissioned, in the size and background color you may be looking for.
