Broadside Study

Broadside Study 5x7 Framed oil on Linen $125

This painting can be viewed during my solo show at the Spiral Press Cafe, adjoining the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT from November 18, 2009 through the holiday season. Please stop in if you happen to be in the area, look at the work, purchase your favorites, and leave comments on the blog! If you would like to purchase this before the show, please email me:

Ready to be transported? On an August morning pack up your painting gear, easel, palette, umbrella, water bottle, paper towels, trash bag, brushes, hat, glasses...... I think that's everything. Out the back door, down the steps, follow the path over the granite chunks and set up on the Old Wharf Lot point in Annisquam, MA. Weigh down the easel with melon sized rocks, tape the umbrella to the easel, affix the linen panel. Gaze at the boats. Spray Off on your ankles. Gaze at the boats. Look between them. Keep your focus at the surface where the light smacks against the white sides and falls to reflection. Suggest the feeling of suspended motion between tides.
