My friend Sally and I agreed to meet in the center of a small beach village near us at 6:00 AM today. The plan was to paint one or two of the cottages in the gorgeous morning light as the sun rises over the ocean. We soon realized that, of all the brilliant sunrises we've had this summer, today was not going to be one of them. There was a dark purple bank of clouds over the ocean, casting a gloomy haze on everything. So, we just set up our gear in a parking lot and went at it. I kind of felt sorry for this abandoned boat and closed up shed, so I decided to paint them.

I'm picking up my bike this afternoon at the repair shop and am psyched to finally be able to ride around and scope out possible painting locations. You see a lot more and can get to some interesting places on a bike!
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.
This blog is designed to share a quick glimpse into my process of painting. All paintings are for sale by contacting the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org
