Vineyard Beach
Vineyard Beach

Private Collection Watercolor on Paper 14 x 20 Martha’s Vineyard is an island in Massachusetts, which can only be reached by boat or plane. It’s divided into six towns, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, Chilmark, West Tisbury and Aquinnah. Whenever I’m on the island I enjoy painting the historic 18th century whaling captain’s houses in Edgartown and the quiet beaches of Chilmark and Aquinnah where this watercolor was rendered.

Private Collection Watercolor on Paper 14 x 18 While I was returning from teaching a workshop, I stumbled upon Danby, Vermont. Danby is a small town that was home to Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner, Pearl Buck. She wrote The Good Earth, a story about rural life and impending war with Japan in 1930’s China. I set up my easel just down the road from her home and painted this quaint New England street scene.

North Boothbay
North Boothbay

Private Collection Watercolor on Paper 14 x 20 Maine has over 3,400 miles of coastline and I have meandered and painted along my fair share of it. Boothbay Harbor is a picturesque village located in mid-coast Maine. It was the setting for the 1956 film musical, Carousel. This cove in North Boothbay with a dramatic sky, majestic pines and rocky shoreline is typical of the area’s natural beauty.

Liberty Hill Farm
Liberty Hill Farm

Corporate Collection Watercolor on Paper 28 x 40 Liberty Hill Farm is a unique place to have a farm-stay vacation. Situated in Rochester, Vermont, it’s a bed & breakfast on a real working diary farm with over 270 Holstein cows. Bob and Beth Kennett have been the proprietors for over 35 years. I taught a weeklong summer workshop here for many years. This view of the farm between the White River and the Green Mountain National Forest is the third most photographed vista in Vermont.

Fresh Snowfall
Fresh Snowfall

Private Collection Watercolor on Paper 14 x 20 I have always felt that watercolor depicts the look and feel of snow best. However, I’m a Plein air artist and when the thermometer drops to 32 degrees or below, the watercolor washes form an icy glaze on the paper and the wet brushes stick to my palette, making it impossible to paint. To counteract that effect, I've come up with an invention that enables me to work in cold weather. This snow scene is the first watercolor that I painted using it.

Surf at Acadia National Park

Watercolor on Paper 22 x 28 “Thunder Hole” gets its name from the loud thundering noise that waves make when they crash into a narrow rocky cavern that’s located here. You’ll stumble upon this cove along the Ocean Trail in Acadia National Park, Maine. The Ocean Trail is an easy four-mile hike through a scenic coastal forest. If you go, check a tide chart because it’s most impressive about three hours after low tide.

Neils Harbour
Neils Harbour

Watercolor on Paper 14 x 20 The Cabot Trail is located along the northern tip of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. The trail is a 186-mile road that traverses along the outskirts of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It’s an exhilarating car ride (more like a roller coaster) through forests with spectacular views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Along the trail you’re likely to see moose, bald eagles and whales. Neil’s Harbour is a typical fishing village on the island.
