Every time I go visit my painting friend Sally Dean, I drive by this awesome multi-level barn at the bottom of her street. The way it sits, all settled in the landscape tall and proud, with the late afternoon light and shadows from tall pines on it, just grabs me. Today we had "laboratory conditions" for plein air painting (no wind, no bugs, no humidity, no clouds) so Sally and I arranged to set up down there around 4:00. Unfortunately, the clouds were winning by that time, so we were faced with "making up" the light, based on what we could observe for those few seconds whenever the sun broke through. That is what I love about the "sport" of painting outside.
I am a full time oil painter living and working the South Shore of Boston. My goal as a painter is to say as much as I can, with as few "well placed" brushstrokes as possible. My paintings are intuitive and spontaneous, meant to engage the viewer in a specific moment in time.
