Felt inspired to re-visit the Brandywine Battlefield yesterday morning... a scene many well known artists have painted through history. I've painted here every year for the last five, and each looks completely different... 40x30" oil on canvas.
I was looking to do something different than the verdant landscapes I've been working on recently. This is an image from my imagination, partly based on childhood memories mixed with a contemporary yearning to be at the sea... 32x24" oil on canvas.
My good friend Rick just moved from this forest property where he's lived peacefully for sixty years. I have been painting here since I started painting with Rick five years ago, and this is the last of about 25 paintings I've done here. "The Last Goodbye" is also the title of my friend's new Broadway musical featuring the music of the late Jeff Buckley. These woods are a deeply meaningful sanctuary for us. 30x24" oil on canvas.
