Perfume Bottles

Perfume Bottles
Acrylic on canvas paper
9" x 12"

Women (and men) love perfumes so much that there is a whole industry dedicated to it. It is not just the scent but how it is marketed and presented to the consumer. The beautiful bottles that hold the liquid are so sparkling and mesmerizing that i don't want to throw away the used bottles.This painting is inspired by the bottles in my closet and a new tube of gold Liquitex Paint marker.

Everyone at one time or another has marveled at the warm pink and orange colors of a sunset. Although colorful sunsets and sunrises can be seen anywhere, they are particularly captivating during a beach vacation.
The colors of this sunset are imaginary but the place is real, (painted from a photo).
Enjoy this visual journey and remember a beautiful vacation sunset on a beach walk.

Mornings with Seagulls

Mornings with Seagulls
acrylic on canvas
18" x 24"

Seagulls are large,resourceful, inquisitive and intelligent birds. There are plenty of seagulls in Cape Cod, a place my family and i visit every summer. We enjoy watching them for hours flying around and sitting on the waves. If they see us with food they will hang around  and wait for us to drop crumbs. This painting is inspired from the joy of spending many mornings with the seagulls on a beach in Cape Cod.

Butterfly Attraction

Butterfly attraction
acrylic on panel
12" x16"

This painting is inspired by the beautiful butterfly bushes that are everywhere in the garden at the Whistler House Museum The painting is in an abstract contemperory style with complementary purple and yellow playing off each other, it is about creating an outdoor garden mood set in a pleasing composition.
The butterfly bushes are significant because the artist, James McNeill Whistler's "monogram 'J.W.' was developed into a 'butterfly' signature in c.1869 and gradually evolved over the next thirty years, acquiring antennae, veins and a tail."
