Clouds above Light on Shore

This is an imaginary coastal scene that I created using a palette knife and brush technique.  I sometimes paint a landscape from memory or composite memories of beautiful places I have experienced.  This one represents the low early evening light under the clouds illuminating the islands and the shore.  Painting from memory frees one's creative spirit.  Does this painting evoke any memories of a particular place for you?

Summer Marsh in Ipswich

This painting is a view of the marsh at high tide on the road to Crane's Beach.  Often there are kayakers and boaters on these waterways.  I recently rented a lovely art studio space in an old mill building where I can continue to focus on developing my skills as a painter in the company of many wonderful artist friends.  I find that having a space outside of my home helps me concentrate for uninterrupted hours of creativity.  I'll be sharing more paintings with you soon.
