A Slice of Heaven

Painting on location with fellow painters is just about the most fun thing you can do, I think. I painted this in my studio recently from a photo I took on one of those magical outings last spring. We were on top of the highest hill in Hull on a spectacular sunny, warm spring day. Within minutes, everyone was in their groove and it was slice of heaven. The model was my good pal Franny Andahazy. I can't wait to get out there! Everything is green again! New England has never looked more beautiful than it does right now!

I took the background in this a little further than I usually do in my figure paintings. This one seemed to need it, in order to speak more about the place and time.


  1. You can feel the sun in this little painting. It is very green out there.

  2. Ok lets paint.
    I was in Worlds end yesterday and it was amazing! (long walk though)
    I love these painting figures of yours-very nice!

  3. You captured that light! Looks like a beautiful sunny day - perfect for painting!

  4. I made a comment on this and it didn't go through! Well you've captured the joy of painting outdoors in this one!
