Thinking of the beach....

Here are some framed prints of a warm beach in the summertime. That means you can look at them and remember warmth all year long!

Looking Back at Wet Dogs

The Wet Dogs are looking forward to the Holidays. Mostly because they get a lot of treats.

They've earned them after all the modeling they did this year!

Here is a sample of some of their efforts. To see these paintings in their entirety, visit the website. Some original oils are still collectable and all of them are available as digital reproductions. 

Like what you see and want free shipping?

Winter with the River

Snow and Fog, original oil painting sold, but digital versions are available

The Piscataquog River runs through my little town, seemingly following me around as I do errands.

Here, it travels back into the woods, its path masked by fog. The uncertainty of its destination is more intriguing than when all the background trees are clear and discernible.

Food for thought as we enter the final month of 2018 and start planning for the next year.

A Little Thaw

Winter Hanging On, oil on canvas, 6"x8"

This is a scene from spring, but it looks like that out there now in some places. The early snows aren't lasting everywhere, so we have the streaks of white and purple over the golds.

Friday, November 23, 2018

More Snow

Fading Winter Sun, oil on gessoed board, 6"x6"

Good thing that I love the snow since it keeps coming. When it looks like this - all glowy - it is easy to love.

Framed Prints Make Great Gifts

If you would like to give someone some original art all ready to hang on the wall, there are some framed pieces available on my website. 

To see the selection of white-line woodcuts available, visit the website.

Early Snow

Backyard Snow, oil on gessoed board, 6"x6"

We went quickly from pumpkins to pure white out there. 

This painting is from a few years ago, but the yard looks pretty much like this. And probably will until April.

Which is fine with me. I love it.

More framed art

Wet Dogs Jump the Waves, digital reproduction, 10"x10"

Sometimes people see artwork online and wonder what it would look like framed. 

Here is one example. Of course, if you take a digital print to your framer, they will give you a million wonderful options more exciting than natural wood.

But this is a start.

Life of Odiorne Rocks!

Odiorne Rocks!, white-line woodcut print hanging in an exhibit

This is an old photo from an exhibit years ago.

Odiorne Rocks! was framed in wood back then. Now, it is framed in warm, grey metal:

At least here. If you get an unframed one, you can frame it however you wish.

Autumn in the Marsh

Cutts Island Marsh, jigsaw reduction woodblock print, 8" x 10"

A print from not too long ago inspired by painting trips to Kittery Point, ME.

I Just Like This One

Maybe I Should Move My Easel, plein air oil painting

I was just looking at older files and I saw this and I like it. You've seen it before. I like it and I had fun painting it.

It is still available...

Popular Block

Block for Leaves in Winter

The third print from this block has now sold and it is time to print another one. 

There will be ten in all. Each one a little different. I don't know how number four will turn out but I will certainly let you know as soon as I do.

Speaking of Digital Prints

This puppy is off to a new home. It had its portrait taken just before it left.

If you are jealous, there is no need to be. Since it is a digital print, I can make more.

And the original painting is still available too!

 Wet Dogs Using the Buddy System, reproductions in two sizes

These two happy swimming pups are now available in a digital print.

There are two sizes, 11"x14" and 8"x10". 

The photo above gives you an idea of the differences between them. They also show that the paper is a natural finish.

The two digital reproductions and the original painting are available on my website. Go ahead and look, I'll wait.

But before you purchase, remember that you can get free shipping if you sign up for my newsletter.

Framed and Blocked

The About Time exhibit at gallery twist is over. Sniff.

They had a few of my white-line woodcuts on display.

They borrowed the block for Veiled House. In case you didn't make the show, here is a photo of the framed print with its block.

As you may remember, this print was inspired by an on-site painting done in my driveway called Neighbor's House. If you were to go out there right now, this is what you would see - the white house shining through golden leaves.

Many Facets


Wet Dogs Using the Buddy System from the front, corners and back.

What do paintings look like in real life?

In this case, the swimming dogs are made out of oil paint applied to a stretched canvas.

The canvas is wrapped around the sides of some bars of wood and stapled on the back. The blue water extends around the sides, giving you the choice to frame it or not. 

They don't always looks like this. I will show you more paintings from different angles soon.

One day, we took a train to the top of die Zugspitze - the highest peak in Germany. This is one of the many unbelievable views of the Alps from up there. 

There was also beer and sausage, so it was a pretty nice day!

River Views

We drove along the Rhine quite a bit during our stay in Germany. Wonderful views everywhere we looked. The river was very low due to a drought, but it was still lovely.

In Germany

This is a photo from inside the courtyard of Burg Eltz - the castle you saw here a few weeks ago. This place is impressive inside and out!

Before Germany...

painting trees in the marsh, oil on gessoed board, 10" x 8"

Just before we left for Germany, the dogs and I went to York to paint on a beautiful day. There was a lovely marsh behind me, but I painted trees. I don't remember why. I do remember that it was quite hot and I wanted to stay in the shade. 

The dogs helped by shaking on me after swimming. Thanks guys.

Don't Forget the About Time Exhibit!

 Afternoon in Tenants Harbor, Leaves in Winter and Neighbor's House

There is still time to see these three prints at gallery twist in Lexington, MA! The show is up until October 21!

Wave in Green and Blue

color woodcut print, 7"x11"

This is one of my most popular prints. 

If you love it, I still have a few in the small edition of 15. 

Friday, October 5, 2018

Late Spray

oil on canvas, 6"x6"

I think this painting is still available. I will have to check. It is a studio piece from a plein air painting done on Monhegan Island near sunset.

Path of the Water

white-line woodcut print

Another classic. This actual print has sold, but I have the block and I could print more.

Even though I have been back from Germany for over a week, I still can't paint or print for a bit because I had a planned surgery. I am fine, just restricted for a few weeks. 

Until I am back to new things, enjoy some oldies!

Brilliant Fall

oil on canvas, sold

When I left for Germany, it was summer, but now it is clearly autumn. Our leaves are golden and red already.

That's ok, I love fall. This plein air painting is from 2012. It is from someone's farm in the middle of NH. I don't remember the name of the town. Could be a lot of places around here - pretty classic New England.

Went on an Adventure

Burg Eltz in Germany

The reason you are seeing so many older things here lately is that I was traveling in Germany for two weeks!

It was a lot of fun. We saw at least a million castles, Burg Eltz was just one of them.

There are at least 10 million photos to process, so it might be a while before I share more here. Just know that it was a blast, I ate delicious food and drank a healthy amount of beer. I didn't paint while I was there, I enjoyed just experiencing the sights and flavors.

I can now ship within a day or two again, so if there is something on the website you want, let me know!

Far Out

white-line woodcut print

This is from quite a few years ago. This print sold and I didn't print another one. I could if someone wanted one, of course...

On the Shelf

On the Shelf, oil on canvas, 6"x6"

For a couple of weeks, you will see some older images here, with little to no description. 

If you like anything, you can comment on it here, or send me a message by using this form.

But be aware that nothing will ship for a few weeks.

I will tell you why soon.

Also at gallery twist

Leaves in Winter, white-line woodcut print, 10"x8"

This is the third of three white-line woodcuts ready for the About Time exhibit at gallery twist.

The show opens at the end of September, so you have time to schedule a visit into your calendar!

Wet Dogs Using the Buddy System

Wet Dogs Using the Buddy System, oil on canvas, 16"x20", available

Here we have Striper and Winnie swimming side by side. It seems like Striper is puzzled by Winnie's contentedness - "You seem awfully happy for a dog without a ball...."

She was always happy to swim. And he was always happy with a ball. They were also close friends and happy to play and swim together.

I painted a tiny version of this many years ago and always thought it was a big idea waiting to find its way to a larger canvas.

I hope you enjoy it as much as the dogs are enjoying the water.

Friday, August 31, 2018

Here's the Photo...

The Headlands, oil on gessoed board, 8"x8"

I tried to show this to you on Monday, but I couldn't find a photo of this little plein air piece anywhere. Probably because I never shot a picture of it. 

Until now. 

Now, it has had its portrait taken and it is also posing for a larger version of itself in the studio. 

And it is available to collectors for the first time.

Busy little thing.

Another White-line for the About Time Exhibit

Veiled House, white-line woodcut print, 10"x8"

Last week, you saw the first of three prints that will be in the About Time exhibit at gallery blink this fall.

This print of a white house obscured by colorful fall leaves will also be on display. I'll show you the last one next week!

Monday, August 27, 2018


A Little to the Right, 8"x8", oil on gessoed board

Along with some new Wet Dog paintings, there are some pure seascapes developing in the studio too.

I was going to share the reference for one I'm working on, but I can't find a photo of it. That might mean that I never took one... Silly.

Until I either take a picture of it or find a picture of it, you can enjoy another on site painting from around the same time. Finding this one might make me want to try it in the studio too.

Maybe forgetting to photograph that other one will turn out to be a productive mistake.

Another Floating Head

Extreme close-up from a painting of some dogs happy with their balls in the water.

In the end there will be at least two paintings of dogs swimming next to each other - remember this head? - and this one. 

The last one is finished and newsletter subscribers will see it next week. 

This one is still in progress. Who knows when it will be finished. But you'll see it when it is done.
