A quickie.. Trying to get back to painting is difficult! This started as wash of blue, green, and red all over the paper..I let my subconscious dictate the flow of pigment. I wasn't planning to paint a seagull.. Then I used a sponge and wiped the white area.. It looked like a seagull, so it became one.. A nice exercise..

Schooner Head

I abandoned this painting earlier  as it got muddy.. I was going to throw it away but instead decided to call it practice, and finish  it.. I had a different vision for it, but oh well, portfolio better than trash!!

Thunderstorm over Fort Williams

Fort Williams again..
Maine's most photographed and painted place..
I like the lighter cloud in the middle of the sky at the top..This was achieved by wiping the paint with a paper towel...I did the sky first as it was my main interest..I did the foreground last..I got bored at the end, and did not feel like putting any more details..Overall, I like it..

Late summer storm

Going from cheerful, warm colors in the last painting, to earthy, troubled, cold colors in this painting..Maine is always changing..You could spend a great warm day at the beach, with blue skies, and sparkles over the water, to rain, cold, and grey!!!

I was mainly interested in the personality of my friend, Carole..I focused on the eyes..The rest was applied very loosely..I did use a grid for the first time..I think it helped to achieve accurate facial details..However, it's hard to erase..Not sure if I'll try a grid again..We'll see..Three colors used: Rose Madder, Aureolin yellow, and cobalt blue...

Once Upon a Memory

Memories of people who passed, of people who came into our lives..All mixed with the freezing cold wind, and the blue Atlantic!!! The orange on the rocks is not exaggerated at all!!

Machias Barn

I took this picture driving home from work in 2006..The barn is now destroyed...I am sad that a lot of history disappear everyday because people are unable to maintain their homes..I hope I could maintain this history, and may be someone, someday, would say, I used to drive by that barn everyday!!
