About to import 80 posts from my blog.
Over the past three years I have developed a passion for the working boats of America’s coastal and inland waterways. Shrimp boats, tug boats, small fishing boats and large, commercial shipping vessels. This one was moored in Bath, Maine and I had a great quiet perch on the dock to paint it from. Utilitarian. Engineered more than designed. Humble and beautiful. Imperfect. Useful and used.

Summer is fast approaching and I’m getting work out for new shows. There’s 6 on show in London at the Mall Galleries at the moment, I’m shipping 6 up to Door County in Wisconsin tomorrow night (including Tugboats #4), and then I need to produce some more new pieces for my solo show in Carmel in May. Meanwhile there’s a piece going into print for a hotel in Baltimore and I just got an order for a second piece to go with it it all the guest rooms. That piece has to be done in the next ten days, while the Semester draws to a close at the Academy, the BFA show has to be finished and everyone’s portfolio presentations attended. I thrive under this kind of workload, and I do my best work. But Sherry and the boys might not like me quite so much and I certainly miss being with them.
201st Annual Exhibition of The Royal Institute of Painters in WatercoloursI’m excited to be exhibiting a series of watercolours on acetate at the Mall Galleries in London this spring. The exhibition runs from Friday 5th April to Thursday 18th April, just off Trafalgar Square in Central London. These pieces are very unlike the work that I have become known for over the years so I am very eager to guage the reaction that they receive as they hang alongside the work of my colleagues in The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours.

Getting ready for a solo show in May at Renaissance Gallery in Carmel, Indiana. Barns and boats, the American rural landscape, the traditional structures associated the getting and gathering of food.

Its going to be a busy couple of months building a body of work for this show and for The Edgewood Orchard Gallery in Door County.
