Wings in Shadow

Finished this one up a few weeks ago.

Yesterday and Today


Today I learned that oil paint stiffens up in the cold just like my old bones. The boat was painted this morning in very cold ( but clear ) air. Both 5x7s hopefully they will be dry in time for my yearly studio show next week.

Patcong Creek


This is just a few blocks from my home. It was nice to have a somewhat sunny afternoon for a change.

Monday's Ducks and Tuesday's Ducks Too


First time in a week it's been sunny enough for me to take pictures of what I've been doing. This little beach in Somers Point seems to be a haven for Brant. Tuesday's piece ( sunset with pier ) was Very intimidating but I went ahead with it anyway. Both 5x7

Classic Shanty


I'm not sure why I didn't find this when I was seeking a subject for the "Vanishing Seashore Cottage" show last spring, but I found it yesterday in Strathmere. Then again last spring I hadn't the nerve to paint out of doors yet! What a delight. 11x14 oil/panel
