Last Friday, 7-2-10 several of the Nashua Area   Breakfast Club Artists met in Hollis, New Hampshire to paint Plein Air.  This is my painting of "A House On Monument Square.  It was so much fun to paint outdoors with a group of artists who each chose a scene to paint.  Some of us painted the same scene from different angles. We will repeat the plein air experience each Friday as weather and time permits.

The Dunes

It's summer and all thoughts turn to the beach.  This painting which is called The Dunes is an 11X14 Oil on Canvas.  It was inspired by two of my favorite beach spots in New England, the sand dunes at Crane's Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts and the Province Land dunes just outside of Provincetown in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  I am pleased with the overall composition, movement in the ocean, and the mood of a windy day at the beach.  The painting is available as an original or a giclee print.
