Garden Wall

I’m calling this watercolor painting Garden Wall. I based the painting on a photograph I took last spring, in the Vanderbilt Mansion’s gardens, in Hyde Park, NY. It was a challenging piece and I had to start over twice, in order to achieve what I wanted from it.

Winter Woods

Winter Woods

This is an image of my latest watercolor painting, entitled Winter Woods. The painting is based on a photograph I took last winter, on a sun-lit hike into Wahconah Falls in Massachusetts. I’m very pleased with the way the rocks turned out, and I think the rocks’ details make them the central focus of the painting.

Watching the Sun Set

This recently completed watercolor painting is called Watching the Sun Set. Based on a photograph I took while on an evening paddle in Little Round Lake, this Great Blue Heron was frozen in place watching the sun set as we kayaked by him.

Mullin Pond

These two commissioned paintings depict the same scene, shown both in winter and summer. I painted them over several months apart from each other. It was quite challenging to first photograph, then paint the scenes, making sure each one matched the other.
