Ready to Hang

The winter of 2015 was a tough one in my native Maine; my solution was to bring bits of spring into my studio and paint them in my snow-filled north-facing window. They cheered me up; now it's their turn to cheer YOU up!

For me, painting is an analogy for life, a balance of risk and control; knowing when to push farther; knowing when to stop. I started painting several years ago to relieve the stress of my high-tech career, never dreaming it would change my life. In summer, my subject is the landscape of the Blue Hill Peninsula in downeast Maine. In winter, working in my Portland studio, I paints still life, which I think of as little landscapes. Whether out-of-doors or in my studio, my artistic concerns are the same: juxtaposing light and dark, invoking pattern and repetition, and layering sumptuous, harmonious color.
