Fire Flies: from the vault

I sold this painting to my neighbors a few years ago. I painted it when I first moved into my home in Linwood around 1993. Then I hurt my back and there were no more landscapes until last fall. approx 28x28

Virginia Blue Bell

In a protected corner of my garden this little flower blooms every spring. It doesn't really belong in New Jersey, but it's doing OK. It's a favorite because it reminds me of Virginia where I grew up. I shipped a painting down to Norfolk this week. I think I miss the south this time of year most of all. 5x7

Oyster Creek

A pretty day yesterday, but chilly. Green sprouts are showing under the old marsh grass. It won't be long until the wetlands have that vivid green carpeted glow of life.

March Storm Clearing


Completed this a few days ago. A thank you to everyone who attended my opening reception yesterday at Atlantic Cape College. Four pieces sold and a splendid time was had by all. There should be an article about the show in the "Sentinal" sometime in the near future. Now back to my "New Stuff"

A Different View: Contemporary Still Lifes by Chuck Law

A reminder that my solo exhibit is now open in the Gallery at Atlantic Cape Community College. Reception is Sunday, April 13th at noon. All are welcome! I'm secretly calling this my Farewell Scatter Painting show. I'll still be doing some still life, but not like I was during the last 4 or 5 years. My love affair with pop art has cooled as my passion for plein air ( and architecture )has ignited! That said the paintings do look great at the gallery all together. Two have already sold!

March Storm Clearing . ..a work in progress

Blocked in this under painting this morning. These houses will all be torn down by the end of the summer. 18"x 24"
