Road Trip! Artist Margot Datz on Martha’s Vineyard

This show will be amazing – titled, “PHANTASMAGORIA” by talented artist Margot Datz. Margot is an expert of fantasy art, murals of any possible size and gorgeous trompe l’oeil painting.  Her work is easily viewed in many public spaces on Martha’s Vineyard and she is among my most favorite in talent, personality and pure artistic ‘sass’. I am thrilled to share details of her upcoming show.

Saturday August 8th, 4-8pm. The Grange Hall, West Tisbury, MA (Martha’s Vineyard)  One night only.

Meet me there!

Painting is my JAM



I noticed a few of my favorite paintings not previously posted… so I am adding them now.  The donuts! Where are those?  I loved painting those yummy fresh delights of dough.  Still-life painting is my jam (as my 9-year old son would state); my favorite way to be.

It is a slow summer of painting – so much to do!   I am in the studio today, so I promise some new art. Last weekend on Martha’s Vineyard with dear friend and mentor, Artist Margot Datz, I am renewed with creative energy! Sophia even came home and straight to the easel. We love Margot. Her next show is coming up, August 8th on Martha’s Vineyard. I will post the details, stay tuned. Let’s all go!

First day en plein air with David Barnes, George, Barbara…

HI!  Wow, I have not updated in awhile.  It has taken me TOO LONG to get my new gear up and running. It is amazing how the much-anticipated upgrade in equipment has thwarted my progress – not supposed to happen! Regardless, I happily painted yesterday with great success at Sachuest Point.  I felt I played it ‘safe’ by painting in a minimalist tonality. I do like what I came up with though. Lovely day, rolling fog and brilliant spot color.  Nice way to get back in the saddle. Sachuest is one of my favorite painting locations.

The day was so grey, with fog rolling in off the Atlantic. Absolutely beautiful in every way.. hard to tell the difference between sky and sea at times. Lovely.

As the fog started to lift, sunlight would shine through to offer a pop of gorgeous color to spots, here and there. Then gone again. Once finished, this board was propped against the leg of my tripod, and as the breeze fell in, my wet painting fell over not once, but three times! All my fault, not the winds, of course :-).   Once it dries I will be able to flick off the dirt specs and dead bugs… part of the job sometimes. This painting is quiet, yet bursts with subtle color.

Looking forward to painting in FL this winter…

Wishing you a warm and happy holiday season. See you in 2015!guillemots in winter_house edge copy
