Bluff Point

This is a recent landscape magnet that sold at the Hygienic Art=Gift Show. The painting was inspired by a sunset I saw while hiking at Bluff Point Park in Groton, CT. The show is on until December 20 in New London.

Bluff Point Sunset and On The Way Home

Landscape Magnets

4" x 2" oil on board
"Bluff Point Sunset"

4" x 2" Oil on board
"On The Way Home"

These two paintings are part of a series of landscapes done as magnets. They were a lot of fun and a challenge to paint since they were so small, but this size required me to simplify their shapes of color and value.

To see all these small oil paintings, this series will be exhibited in the Holiday Art Show at the Hygenic Gallery in New London CT. The reception is November 21, 2009 from 7 - 10 pm. And if you cannot make this reception, the art by me and other artists will be exhibited thru December 20, 2009.

The address is 79-83 Bank St in New london.
Dates open: Thursday 11-3. Friday 11 - 6. Saturday 11 -6 and Sunday 12 - 3,

Lets Go, Red Dog

6 x 6" oil on board

I met this dog and its owner in New Haven, CT while they were both getting exercise on a sunny day. He was a muscular, healthy looking animal with a very regal carriage. When I asked the owner what breed he was, she said, "Just dog, adopted from a local pound." I really enjoyed creating an oil painting of him and capturing his spirit and strength.

Update: to purchase this painting go to my auction on ebay:
