New Work

Furrows & Fractions
Furrows & Fractions  24" x 30"  $13,500 - SOLD

After a recent painting trip West was cancelled, I headed to Wisconsin for three days with high expectations and large canvases.     

The weather was sharp, cold and overcast but the compensation was rich color and a seemingly heightened sense of sound and smell. While painting the prairie school, I was treated to the crisp, almost ceramic sounds of a farmer stacking wood on that lonely road. With the working sawmill, the pungent, resinous fragrance of wet, fresh sawdust. These sensory gifts create in me a heightened sense of awareness which without doubt, inform the work.     

I worked straight through the days standing on uneven ground in freezing mud with a bad back.     

Well into day 3 - shivering, I unscrewed my thermos and realized I was smiling.     

Thanks to my friend Andrea Gerasimo for her wonderful hospitality.

Hook Head Lighthouse 8" x 12" $3,400
These paintings were included in exhibitions in both Wexford Ireland and Maryland, here in the US.

When I unpacked the box, I was flooded with the warm memories of days with my wife and son, friends old and new, moody weather, bad breakfasts and the utter impossibility of finding a proper martini.
