Front St. Housatonic Mass

Caught in the act...I started this study on a warm sunny morning...however it was so windy I had to go inside...then I went back out this cold grey afternoon to work on it...ended up back out in the sun this morning with no wind...sometimes I wonder what it's all about...the desire to paint yet another view of Housatonic...more love and beauty I guess...36x36" oil on canvas

The Nasturtiums and Guitar

I painted this last week after I had done a bunch of watercolors of the Nasturtiums...I wanted to do an took me quite a while to figure a way to compose the painting so that it would inspire me...Sam was playing in the studio that morning and I had been studying a collage of George Braques which was filled with guitar is what came of it...oil on canvas 36x36"

The Depot

This is where they stored the freight awaiting the empty, would make a great studio? wool blankets for WWII were made here in Housatonic...among other mostly art, which does not seem to need a train to move it...yet... old blue station in the distance as well as mills,one used for most popular, Country Curtains,other one mostly abandoned, patiently awaiting an architect and lots of money... the water tower holds its own...I was really trying to find an angle to paint the depot did the job... oil on canvas 30x30"
