"Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision. The world is not interested in mere pictures.  People look for this expression of beauty. The painter will never achieve this by merely painting pictures...he must show people more than they already see and he must show them with so much human sympathy and understanding that they will recognize it as if they themselves had seen the beauty and the glory. This is where the artist comes in."

          paintings from life

I hope the work has shown you moments of the 'beauty and the glory '  and you will continue to seek out paintIings, whether in gallery or museum settings.  Art sustains us all, making our lives richer, giving us moments of reflection, wonder and peace.

I hope new work reflects continued growth, for each painting is the next challenge that teaches me...what a wonderful journey of discovery I am on, and most grateful for your continued response and appreciation of the work.

New places to vist and canvas to cover...adventures ahead!

For purchase information on a painting you like or if you need more details about the work, please e-mail  (blue buttons below) either the studio or the gallery in Maine,  Gifts at 136...  we look forward to answering your questions.
