There's this baby blue building tucked away in Beacon Hill that, despite being one of the only baby blue houses, fits right into a neighborhood of Federal-style rowhouses. I've long been meaning to paint this building and have set out numerous times to paint en plein air in front of it. It's never been easy.
When Ann and I traveled to Maine toward the end of September we brought most of our food. Even though it was late in the plum season I picked out a few pieces of the fruit at the store primarily to paint, then of course to eat.
I didn't set out to paint this popular Boston restaurant, but when I arrived at my waterfront location it was hard to escape the direct sunlight. So I lugged my equipment to a nearby location stood in the shade of a rather large building across the street from the Barking Crab. There was so much light being reflected in the window and I just had to paint it.
I am fortunate to have connected with Allison and Andrea at Red Door Design Works to show a few of my paintings in a Beacon Hill penthouse they are staging and will go on the market in March. As an artist it's an interesting way to get my work 'out there' in a non-traditional way, in front of totally new buyers! Above is Foris 13, a 24x48" acrylic on canvas painting. And below is a painting I did of the BU Bridge, a 20x24" oil on canvas. Stay tuned for more!
I was a baseball-obsessed kid until about 16. Games not often enough, practices not long enough, and then begging my dad, mom and sister to go out to play catch. I saw myself as a pitcher and would emulate my favorite players, notably Roger Clemens and Nolan Ryan.
This weekend was the Paris Roubaix cycling race, one of the cycling spring "classics". Notorious for all the sections on cobblestone, the race is tremendously difficult due to length and overall complexity. Not that I had anything to do with the race...
I want to paint the things that have been a part of my life and sports, no doubt, have played a huge part - check my bio to see. Like my other post on running shoes, the spikes I painted have some very specific memories associated with them.
