This painting was a commission by the owner of the store. It is on the green in Guilford, CT. I started this in the spring when the cherry trees were in bloom. It is a great little bookstore with some pretty nice art books, among other things. It is right next door to a wonderful chocolate shop. I'm having cards made to sell at the shop as well.
I am a New England artist specializing in modern impressionist painting. My paintings are oil on canvas or linen. I am a plein air painter, but I also do still life and figurative work.
I am also a creative writer. I write short stories, flash fiction, and I am working on a novel.
I've studied with many artists in the New England area, including Stapleton Kearns and Jack Keledjian. My work is available at different galleries and stores in Connecticut.
