The fall show season has been a busy one. I am happy to say that my recent travels to Maine have also produced a flurry of new work. I am always inspired by the simple beauty of this special place.
Cape May Lighthouse and Dunes
A woman came to my show at The Evesham Harvest Fest last weekend. She saw my painting of The Cape May Lighthouse and told me she had grown up just near it. She quickly decided that she wanted to purchase the original of this popular New jersey landmark. It is always a good feeling when a painting you have done evokes a warm memory for someone!
The Lone Angler
Surf fishing is very popular along the New Jersey coast and I observed many fishermen from the deck of a rental on Long Beach Island, where I could view and hear the pounding surf. I love showing big skies in a painting and quite enjoyed painting this scene. Therefore, I was very happy when a man came to one of my shows In Ocean City, New Jersey, and fell in love with the painting. It is always gratifying as an artist, when someone feels moved by your work.
