Beach Along Cotuit Bay (5 x 7 in)
I walk my dog along this beach a few times a week. I was struck by the curving waves and sand designs.  Seafoam is fun to paint too. There is always a beautiful color just under the surface that comes through in places and in the waves as they turn over.

Salt Pond near Craigsville Beach
(5 x 7in)
Cape Cod abounds in salt ponds and marshes. We were at Craigsville Beach last weekend. This painting is from some photos I took that day. Beautiful clouds in the sky and I was pleased to capture them in this pond so I could also paint the marsh up close and still include the great sky.

New Work

Tree Light (12 x 16 in)
Trees are especially fun to paint. They each have their own rhythms and patterns that seem to carry a lyrical message. I love their grace and fine lines. This pine is growing along the Santuit River on Cape Cod. I caught it just as the sun was coming up and catching the very top.

New Work

Along Putnam Ave., Cotuit (10 x 10 in)

Red Snapper (10 x 10 in)
Just finished these yesterday evening. The woods run along a local road where the light in the morning is warm and dappled. I took several shots of this stand of trees and plan to do several views. The red snapper came from the camera of a good friend who went fishing down in Florida on vacation. When I saw the wonderful color of the fish I just had to paint them. They are very textural and angled and even their little teeth added a nice pattern.

Blue Crabs (5 x 7 in)

Come Further In (5 x 7 in)

Marsh Light (5 x 7 in)

Horseshoe Crabs (5 x 7 in)
I have just relocated to Cape Cod from Georgia. I am taking my camera everywhere on the cape. These last few weeks I have been taking photos of creatures and objects I find on the beach when I walk the dog in the morning. Some of these new pastels reflect what I discovered there. The orange marsh is a throwback to a trip to Savannah, Ga while the second marsh is from Prince Cove on the cape.
