I know I said I was going to spend a year working on 24 x 36 inch canvas in a minimalistic style. But sometimes my muse just wants me to paint a happy owl. Meet fluffy! And for those a fan of my black and white or more neutral work, yes, my black paints are laid out in the studio and more minimalism is coming.
Sadly, as sometimes happens with media, the internet ate my blog. I’ve restored most of the posts but I think I will be turning some of the older posts off. It will take a little time to restore the images as well. The blog is not dead, just undergoing a little rehablilation.
In case you missed some of my latest paintings:
The Wessex Wyvern
The Tonttu: A Finnish Elfe
Between the Sea and the Sky
Garden Catalog Promises
A Day at the Beach: Exploring Painting with Cold Wax
The adventures continue!

The first painting completed in 2018. This is oil on canvas and the title is “The Last Customer” It is of Bob’s Diner in #Brewster, NY. I’m painting some of the buildings that will be demolished when they build our new town center in a couple of years, as we will not see their like again. Small theaters, 50’s diners, and Pool Halls.
Brewster, New York is a village within the Town of Southeast. They are going to renovate the village in late 2018-19. They will knock down several historic buildings, including a 50’s Diner (Bob’s Diner) a Pool Hall and the old Cameo Theater. I plan to paint them each before they are gone.
