If you’ve talked to me about my work or have asked me to paint a specific scene, you might know that I do not work fast when painting from photographs or particular ideas that are not my own. The Queen Bee has been wanting me to paint a photo that she took at sunset for a few summers now. I finally got around to it here in this 48″x24″ work on canvas, Sunset View.
Thank you to everyone who stopped out during the Garrett County Arts Council Artist Studio Tour! It was great to open the studio up again to the public. Whether you came to browse or purchase art, it was great to see you all.
We sold work that hadn’t even made it to the website yet, which is always a good thing. Below is By the Mark, which found its way to a new home.
Some of you may have celebrated this past weekend, and some of you may celebrate today. Either way, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This year’s holiday seems to be giving way to a little bit of a brighter outlook as far as being able to get back to life as usual.

A year ago, I published a series of posts around a Virtual Tour of Ireland. With March upon us, I figured it was time for some more thoughts and images of Ireland. The series includes most of my original Irish art, but I found a few more.
Below is a painting I finished after spending time in Kinsale, a historic port and fishing town in County Cork, Ireland.
