Started working on "The Art Teacher" 12 x 16 . I remember all my art teachers through the years. In particular was my elementary school art teacher.

SOLD Happy Spring ! Just completed this 18x24 painting. I really enjoyed creating this piece. I love the quote by Marcel Proust which inspired me to paint a renaissance style woman tending to her grand garden with her daughter helping in the background. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend and holiday. For sale on my website.

I am working on another 18x24 canvas this week. I guess I am starting to think about spring and flowers finally. I must confess I love painting flowers but not gardening so much.
I love the quote by Marcel Proust
"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Thank You.
I have a few charming gardeners in my life.

I have decided to do a more expressive style piece of an interior. I 've had an 18x24 stretched canvas staring at me, I mostly work on wood panels, but for this piece it's perfect. I am finding that painting quickly and without restriction can be very exciting as well as therapeutic.
I have three sons and my middle son Maxwell now 26 living in Brooks Maine has decided to give up organic farming for his true passion - Painting! He studied at the Museum School in Boston but then started an organic farm with his partner three years ago only to realize his true calling. I have shown and sold some of his early paintings of farm life. By chance he met a rather well known painter from Belfast who has agreed to mentor him and the results so far are amazing.
Zachary and Maxwell have decided to pursue careers in the Visual Arts or should I say , "The calling." Both of them have had wonderful opportunities and doors that have open . I am grateful for them and their gifts. Here are a few of Max's older pieces that I will make available in my etsy shop. Stay tuned for his new work . Done in 2015-2016
