I enjoy painting landscapes, marine scenes, garden scenes, and still life. I would like to describe my artisitc style as a realistic style with an immpresionistic flair. I apply the oil paint to canvas with both brushes and painting knives. In oil paiting I utilize thick textured paint especially with flowers and foilage which stands in contrast to the smoother areas of the painting. This creates a 3D affect which allows the onlooker to feel as though they can walk into the scene
Fresh off the easel this weekend! "Honey Pot Road Autumn", oil on canvas panel, 16" x 20", I painted this from my own photos in my studio in the same style as my plein air painting but on a larger size canvas. I will paint more paintings in this larger format.

I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
