Tea and Roses

Dear friends and followers,
I have been away from my blog for several months while I have been taking classes with a wonderful artist, Kelly Carmody. I have learned a lot and am now inspired to again paint still lifes, landscapes and portraits and share them with you on my blog.  I have reactivated my website and added some new paintings at:    This is my latest oil painting from a still life set up in my studio.  I love the challenge of painting white roses!  Thank you for sharing my adventures in painting.  It is so nice to have feedback and comments on this blog.   I will continue to post new paintings as they are finished.  Enjoy!

October in the White Mountains

Bright sunshine pours over the hill after the first October snow covers the distant mountain tops in New Hampshire.

Painting a Sargent at the Museum of Fine Arts

This is a revised painting of the woman at the MFA painting a copy of John Singer Sargent's painting.  I made several changes that I hope are improvements.  I am submitting this painting to a juried Members show at the Newburport Art Association this weekend.

Painting Sargent at the MFA

On a recent visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I discovered this young woman painting a painting by one of my favorite Boston artists, John Singer Sargent.  She was doing a wonderful job!  I couldn't resist taking a photo so that I could paint her painting Sargent.

Sonoma Coast

During a recent hike on the cliffs above the ocean in Sonoma County, I found many beautiful scenes to paint.  It was early evening and the light was low on the horizon.

Colorado Summer Storm

Fast moving skies above the Lake in the mountains above Colorado Springs inspired this painting.  While following the path around the lake last September I took over 200 photos for references for future paintings.  This is the first of many I plan to paint.
