I hope this finds you well and the first quarter of this year has been kind to you.

Summer of last year, I spent July and August painting in the North Carolina mountains and along the coast of Maine. I look forward to visiting again this year in the continual search for new subjects. Winter saw me settling in the new studio, and finishing paintings for my show at Hughes Gallery in Boca Grande, which opened Monday, March 25, 2013.

I’m currently making an appearance, March 25-26, 2013. Please feel free to contact me, or the gallery for more information:

Following is a selection of new paintings from the show.

Florida Grown
egg tempera on panel

Taking a break from the studio one Sunday, this painting was inspired by pastureland west of Bunnell.

Graceful Light
egg tempera on panel

Part of a long-term series I am working on to be included in a forthcoming book.

End of the Line
oil on linen panel

Remnant of the old railroad line crossing Gasparilla Sound in southwest Florida.

Rum Tum Tugger
egg tempera with oil glazes

With apologies to T.S. Elliot, The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat: “He’s always on the wrong side of every door.” This painting provided an opportunity to play with colors uncommon in nature and further develop my egg tempera technique.

That’s all for now. As always, I appreciate you.

If you are a subscriber to my periodic blog updates,  I will be posting these paintings with my reflections soon.
