I am pleased to introduce my new series of works at this show at the Farmington Library. My new paintings are mostly in oil and are from “en plein air” studies completed on various beaches on the Atlantic side of the beautiful state of Florida. My new series comments on the play of colors and light at sunrise and sunset between sea and sky. There are also recordings of approaching storms and the visual dance between the sea, surf and sky during those dark hours. Most of my new paintings however, are gentle and serene seas. Brushstroke is of utmost importance giving the seascapes motion and rhythm. I am pleased with this new direction, as some of the seascapes approach near abstractions.
