I enjoy painting and drawing in Gloucester/Cape Ann and the Boston area. My subjects range from landscapes (including plein air), to florals (mostly from my gardens), and people (live models, friends, family, and others during my travels). I tend towards the realist/impressionist end of the spectrum, but also enjoy abstract expressionism. I try to capture the play of light on form, and the rhythm and beauty of what is observed.
