Ghost Ship

24x30 oil on linen, Something different for me. It was fun painting the Schooner, Lady Maryland. On the horizon, sometimes you get this mirage effect in the summertime. The boat seems to be floating in air and you almost feel it could be a real mirage or ghost ship that disappears minutes later.

Crab House

9x12 oil on linen. This is another Summer time haunt. I love fall but hate the end of boating season!

Herman Krentz

9x12, oil on linen. We literally stalk this beautiful Skipjack every summer and have seen it in every possible lighting situation. This is one of my favorite scenes.

Miss Louise

8x10, oil on canvas. Last July I was honored to be selected to a group of Plein Air painters in "Paint Easton" competition. This was a real eye opener for me. I was humbled by the talent of painters from all over the country. Plein air painting is NOT for sissys.... 90 degree heat, 110% humidtity, and a thunderstorm. Some painters were out at sunrise and go till sunset....and even night painting! This painting is from a spot in Claiborn, MD where I spent many hours.
