"Winter Blue Jays"

I made the studies for this scene from sketches of the resident jays near my feeder. The red highbush cranberries turn a bright red by mid-winter and attract many birds. By late winter when the berries are more tender due to the many thawings and freezing, the birds find a colorful meal waiting to be readily eaten.

"Dawn's Symphony"

This scene was inspired by the view I see from my home on Lake Annabessacook. It's early morning and as the sun filters through the trees, a pair of Canada Geese glide into the shadows. I paint a number of watercolor and oils from my deck overlooking the water. Some will be made into print form.Signed, numbered, limited edition print of 575. Image size: 14 1/4" x 21 3/8"

"Skating at Deering Oaks" circa 1940

New falling snow welcomes skaters as they enjoy the magic of skating "at the Oaks". A winter's evening of fun topped off with a cup of hot chocolate. Summer or winter, the Oaks continue to be enjoyed. Third in the Portland Series.Signed, numbered, limited edition print of 500. Image size: 14 3/4" x 21 1/2"

"Coastal Garden"

As I travelled near the Portland Yacht Club, I found fields of lupine in full bloom. There, near the edge of one of the fields, a grouping of white Adirondack chairs were placed overlooking Casco Bay. A scene waiting to be painted, and I did.Signed, numbered, limited edition print of 750. Image size: 10 3/8" x 14 1/2"

"Union Station, Portland, Maine circa 1936"

A glowing night scene with businessmen arriving after a long day's work and shoppers returning from Boston. All are greeted to fresh falling snow at Portland's Union Station. Portlanders still fondly remember this landmark which was dismantled in 1963. Some research went into this scene. I used a 1920's Reo for the bus, an early 1930's Ford for the smaller taxi and I turned my Grandmother's 1936 Pontiac into the far left taxi. First in the Portland Series.

I made the sketches and took photographs one October afternoon between rain squalls. Second in the Portland Series. Signed, numbered, limited edition print of 500. Image size: 17 1/4" x 24 3/4"

"Winter Birch"

This stand of white birch is between fields where a trickle of a brook runs through. It's on a few acres I have in Northern Maine. The land was a working farm at one time but with disuse, brush and soft wood saplings are creeping along field edges. This little spot has always been a favorite of mine and so perhaps others might also see the beauty of this place.
