This painting took its inspiration from a location in the Old Port, Portland Maine.
This scene inspired me, while I was visiting Monhegan Island.
While visiting Monhegan Island, I saw this Woman selling her hand made jewelry.

One of the most iconic images from Maine, Bass Harbor Light.
I almost like boats more when they are out of the water.
Friends own a home that has a very productive Apricot tree. Their home is in an old neighborhood in Portland. I’m always interested in this little garden space and wanted to capture its special appeal.
On a summer day I had plans for a seafood dinner. The impulse to paint these wonderfully strange animals was too strong to resist.
The owners favorite photograph of their deceased pet was the inspiration for this painting. Intense colors helped me achieve the feel of the day, sunny and hot. This Lucky dog seemed very happy to go for a swim on a perfect summer day.
My friend agreed to pose for this portrait on the rooftop of my studio in downtown Bangor Maine. We borrowed the Nutcracker jacket from a local Ballet company. I was inspired by the graphic quality of the jacket against the city and bright day.
