Lily Pond & Dark Woods

Katherine Henning, Associate Curator at Saatchi Art, has chosen my painting Lily Pond & Dark Woods to be be featured in the Inspired by Turner Collection at Saatchi Art's homepage.  This painting, part of my Wild Beauty series,  is oil on panel 10" x 10" in a black floater frame measuring 11" square.

This painting was done plein air at one of my favorite spots in Maine.  Now with warmer temperatures arriving I will soon be out abstracting the landscape plein air.  I am very excited to have my work curated into this new collection and featured with the many other talented artists on Saatchi.  You can see more of my work on my website under the Wild Beauty series and at Saatchi Art.

Many thanks to Katherine Henning for this honor!

Without a Destination
mixed media/paper
30" x 22"

From my Journey series the above painting Without a Destination has been invited to a new home in New England.  This painting went through many journeys in its development - see the image below.  Quite different from the initial rendering!  I often take photos of work in process.  It helps me critique my work, especially if stuck, and avoid getting lost.

One never knows where a painting will take them.  It is always a fascinating trip and even without a specific destination it is worthwhile.  You can see more of this Journey series on my website or visit Powers Gallery in Acton, MA to see the paintings.
