Matthew's oil, 24x36 "A Tricky Descent" It was fun waiting for this large group of Bison to come over the ridge and start down this dusty slope. I knew it would be fun to paint.

Matthew's 6x9 Buffalo, oil on board. "I saw these Buffalo in Zimbabwe. The light was fantastic but so frustrating. Just as the light gets really great, you are forced to leave the park."

Snowy Egret in Surf, Oil by Matthew, 18x24- "I made a wonderful discovery on our recent trip to England. Little Egrets! Since I've been in America Little Egrets have populated Southern England. We saw a group of three every morning patrolling the shoreline. Although, this is an American Snowy, I was definitely inspired by those English Egrets."

Matthew's oil, 8x14, "The Bergamont are from my garden. They are very tatty, they are invasive, they flop and always succumb to mildew. But I love them and so do the hummingbirds.

We had house guests last week. John and Susie Seerey-Lester. This is what John was doing while I showed Susie how to make the frame. His lovely painting was of Matthew's orchids. It was a great visit, we all had lots of fun!

Matthew latest- Woodstork, 36x24, oil. "I saw this Woodstork one rainy morning in the Everglades. He looked so miserable that I could not resist painting him. I felt the subject was suited to a looser approach and had lots of fun slapping on wet oil with large brushes. I didn't want to overthink my technique, I just reacted to my subject."

Julia's- We saw this scene including a lovely Scots Pine in the fields behind Manor Barn, Matthew's home in England. The hills beyond are the South Downs.

Matthew's painting- " I painted this view of Clymping Beach whilst standing on the old concrete blocks which were intended to stop the German invasion back in WWII. For 10 years this felt like my own private beach. I was caretaker of a large country house called Poole Place that stands just behind this wall."

Matthew's painting- "We spent a wonderful afternoon painting, listening to the birds and the occational train going to and coming from London. Field painting hightens your senses. Not just helping to understand tone & color, but even the wind blowing through the reeds & the distant sound of the Cricket match from Arundel Park all becomes a part of the painting- A Day to remember!!"
Arundel Castle, two different views from the river Arun at Burpham (Great pub in the village, George & Dragon!!) First my painting....

Hi, we have been back from our trip to England for about a week but playing catch-up. This is Patrick behind his Grammy's house on the South Coast. We had a fantastic time and visited all our friends and family. We did some sight seeing and field painting as well.

Matthew's.......I just finished this little oil, 11x7. I am just back from teaching a workshop in Easton. Lots of fun but great to be back in the studio for a few days before we disappear off to England. I want to send out a very big thank you to my wonderful students on the Eastern Shore!

This is a tribute to my Dad. He died last month from cancer. He loved the Eastern Shore. That was his heaven on earth. Someone who shared in his passion was my Uncle Marty. He passed away last week. I like to imagine they are together now in a place just like this. Love, Jules
