My paintings have an element of the “What did you do last summer?” essays that kids are called on to write in middle school. They reflect my travels and life.

For the past few years I have been extremely fortunate to be part of a group which takes their identical hand-built wooden boats on a trip up the coast of Maine.  This past year, over a period of six days, we traveled from West Bath, Maine, up to Bucksport and back again. 

I bring along my sketch book and trusted Nikon and combine the adventure and camaraderie with a reference gathering expedition.  Once back in the studio I do my best to recreate elements of the journey on canvas.
