“Back in the Day, Somes Sound” is a 30″ x 40″ painting commissioned by the Gallery at Somes Sound. Basing my work on a circa 1900 black & white photograph, I wanted to bring life, color and light to this historic scene. After visiting Somesville and studying old photographs, what amazed me the most was how much of this scene still exists today. Painting and researching an historic moment in time is always a fulfilling journey… it creates a deep connection with the people and places of the past and it changes your view of the present.
“Morning on Monhegan, 1898” has been selected for a national maritime show at the Copley Society of Art. Juried by John Stobart and Russell Jinishian.
