This is the backview of the top floor of a house on Plymouth Place in Ocean City. My family lived there in the early sixties before we moved to Virginia. The window with the awning was my bedroom. I won't say how old I was, but I will say it was during a time in my life when I was afraid of the dark! It was a great place to live...right on the beach block! It was cold out there this morning, but the sun was bright and full of memories.

Spent 6 hours today painting on this one. I'm doing it for the "Roof Tops" show in June at the Ocean City Art Center. When I heard about the theme I knew I wanted to do something with the fish-goyles that hang near the rooftops of the Flanders Hotel. It will need one more session at least. The pigeon was a bonus, I didn't even see him when I was taking the reference photo.

I kept saying to myself ..your in over head with this one...then the voice said...If you want to learn to swim, you have to dive into the deep end. First try at this house from last week was a wipe out. Second version here has a few minor perspective problems, but I felt that it was a keeper. 9x12

A quaint but no less challenging scene from Birch Grove Park. My output is slowing up this week as I begin framing the small stuff for a one day Art Show at Our Lady of Sorrows in Linwood. Then I'm framing up some of the larger stuff for my solo show in April at Atlantic Cape Community College.

It's been raining the last few days so I found myself painting flowers again for the first time since last September. It was interesting to gage how my style has been affected by all these months of plein air studies. I began this one as a smaller piece, but the "legginess" of the spring blossoms demanded more room.

This one reminded me of a post card . I subscribe to three blog painters that use postcard to describe their paintings. Postcards from Puniho, Postcards from Detroit and Postcards from Provence. I really enjoy viewing these painters "postcards".
