Another long absence. Life is complicated! But I will try to stay with it this time. If you're interested in my new work, I post it on my Facebook page. But I haven't learned what to do with it after that. I'll see if I can get my grandson to give me a tutorial. In the meantime, I have been painting a lot and will post various things more often than in the recent past. Here goes...
Field of Lupine
Oil on Canvas 16 X 20
This goes back to June when the lupine seems to cover the land here in Maine. Sometimes it comes in multiple colors, but this patch was a rich purple/blue/red. It's not here for long to I had to hustle to get image. Right now, there is no sign that it was ever there, such is the transient nature of life.
Country Churchyard: II
Oil on Canvas 20 X 20
I've done this before from a somewhat different angle. This was in the spring so not all the leaves were out and I could make more of this very dominant tree. I'll bet it (the tree) has been here longer than any grave. I thought the crooked headstones added to some of the irony here. The church is often photographed from the front. These mysteries are hidden except to those who look behind.
Red Maples in Sprague Woods
Oil on Canvas 16 x 20
I've done a number of paintings in the large tract of land which is now a nature preserve owned by the very wealthy Sprague family. It's in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. This is again in the spring before the leaves are completely out so the skeleton on trees is much more visible. I liked the way the sun was shining through the leaves creating a challenging variety of red/browns.
