     This is the first of several sea pieces I am planning to do over the next few years. In fact it feels like my direction may be bending further towards the sea which is a good thing. To get these sea paintings right, an artist must do them over and over and over in all forms, large, small, plein air studies and sketches all the way up to highly finished studio pieces.

"SOLITUDE"
oil on canvas, 18"x 24"

     This was a commissioned piece, and while I'm not necessarily known for figurative work I find that the human figure can be a most powerful presence when it is incorporated into the scene and when the scene is incorporated into the figure......such as in this painting.
