Welcome to my site.  Spending half the year in mid-coast Maine provides wonderful inspiration..... from ocean to  woodland streams..... to villages and mountains...each place is special with Maine's amazing light that has attracted painters to the state for centuries.

My work is not to edify or be a copy of nature, but is an impression of the scene as I found it on that particular day.  My success is when you, the viewer, can feel the same emotion I felt in that moment when chancing upon the scene.

Travels also take me to the southwest where you will  find recent work from my last visit.

A realist painter working in three mediums..... I choose the best medium for each work.  Enjoy the pages that follow and learn more about me on the page for Painter.  The paintings are for sale and framed.  I also welcome creating a special painting for you in landscape or still life.
