Rockport Sails

                                         Unframed Watercolor on Arches 6"x 13"

       This is the last one I am sharing in this series. This one was done in my studio from memory combining a view from Rockport Harbor and the  many sailboats I saw while walking around the harbor . Painting from memory is fun and I urge you to give it a try. When you are away from your subject you tend to put down the essence and not get bogged down with meaningless detail.  It is amazing how the feelings of the day, time, and smells do come right back to you . It is a fun way to paint and you may open yourself up to a whole new way of doing things and not having the subject right in front of you prevents you from trying to copy the view exactly and frees you up to paint your impression of the day you remember. 
        This watercolor is available by emailing me, or clicking on my DailyPaintWorks Gallery on the right or going to  I hope you enjoy this painting. :-D

In Remembrance Of 9/11

    Living in Manhattan this is a somber day of remembrance for our city and our nation.  Please keep the families of those lost 11 years ago in prayer.

                         Psalm 147:3   He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Gloucester Oceanside 2

                                                        Unframed Watercolor 10x13 on Arches

       This was the second painting I did before settling in for a quiet lunch at the Inn. This was challenging for me as I had my easel balanced among the rocks , it was very windy and those little invisible bugs followed me to this spot. I did like this spot though as I loved the view, the boats nearby checking their traps and the sound of the ocean washing up on the rocks.

Gloucester Oceanside 1

This was painted on the second day of my visit this summer. What a glorious day it was. This is my first attempt at waves and the ocean. I found this wonderful inn where I parked and later had lunch. I was grateful to be served in my painting clothes.  Here is the link to their website if you are ever in the area. Lunch was fabulous .  Ocean View Inn and Resort    I hope you enjoy this painting.  You may purchase this painting by emailing me or going to  and looking under my name.

This was painted from the Rocky Neck side of Gloucester Harbor. It is a very busy little spot and it happened to be windy that day so it was indeed a challenge to keep my easel steady.  I have found hanging a heavy backpack from it does help . check out Rocky Neck Art Colony if you get a chance It is a wonderful place to visit   Rocky Neck Art Colony     I hope you enjoy this painting . It is available through email or
