SCENIC WATERCOLOR GALLERY

A¬†gallery of watercolors I’ve done based on scenic images .

Azalea Lane

AZALEA LANE

I love Spring.  One of my favorite scenes are those that involve colorful azalea bushes.  Here the Live Oaks trees are blanked by colorful Azalea bushes creating a scene inviting you to walk through.

UNDER THE APPLE TREE

This painting is from a scene from my brothers back yard in Kennebunkport, Maine.  Sitting under this wonderful old apple tree you get to take in all the wonderful flower gardens.

THREE BOATS

These 3 boats, moored out in the Kennebunk River, were just inviting me to paint them.  Lit by the late evening summer sun, they just drift in the tide and create wonderful compositions.

THROUGH THE COTTONWOOD

Hiking the trails in Sedona, AZ is an amazing experience.  We were hiking one trail and moving through the cottonwood trees.  every once in a while a scene like this would pop out.  Each time I would think to myself, this is a painting waiting to happen.

EARLY WINTER FARM

This painting is displayed as a triptych of a farm scene off the Little Miami Bike Trail in Oregonia, OH.  The day was a misty day and the snowing very lightly.  This created a peaceful and clean sensation.  Hopefully I’ve captured that here.

LATE IN THE DAY

This painting was inspired by several pictures I took while hiking around Mount Desert Island, ME.  Every once in while you’ll come upon a stand of birch trees.  In this case I caught it in the evening sunlight.  The different colors in the sky contrasted against the forest floor and the warm colors of the trees left me feeling calm and relaxed.

1x2-Landscape-Frame-with-Where-Eagles-Fly

WHERE EAGLES FLY

While sailing through the fiords in the early morning the mounsides are enveloped with wispy fog.  Bald eagles are everywhere.  Very surreal.

1x2-Landscape-Frame-with-Old-Grist-Mill-Pond

ON GRIST MILL POND

This old grist mill stands proudly on the banks of a place called Grist Mill Pond in Kennebunkport, ME.  It’s red color against the blues and greens of the surrounding landscape makes for what I think is one of the most beautiful of the Kennebunkport area.

2x3-Landscape-Frame-with-Hike-The-Virgin-River

HIKE THE VIRGIN RIVER

A visit to Zion National Park is not complete unless you’ve hiked the Virgin River trail.  This trail actually winds through knee deep water for miles in the slot canyon of Zion.  We did this hike when our kids were small.  I’ll never forget the imagery of seeing ourselves as little dots in this gigantic canyon.  In this painting I tried to capture this contrast in size and the awesomeness of the canyon.

CONTOOCOOK CROSSING

On the campus of New England College in Henniker, NH stands this covered bridge crossing the Contoocook River.  It is used today a footbridge connecting both sides of the college campus.  There are many fond memories created on this bridge.  I created this winter scene as it was one of my most vivid recollections of this bridge.

BOATS ON LAKE ORTA

WINE COUNTRY

A scene from a pretty winery in Sonoma County

2x3-Landscape-Frame-with-Winter-Woods

WINTER WOODLANDS

I wanted to add a winter landscape to my collection so I used several wintery scenes I photographed as reference for this painting.  Have lived in New England and skied many times out west, this scene reminds me of many of those places.

2x3-Landscape-Frame-with-Turning-Their-Colors

TURNING THIER COLORS

My favorite season is the fall.  I love the turning of the colors in the forest.  Each and every leaf is it’s own display of awesomeness.

ON JORDAN POND

I’ve visited and hiked Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park many, many times.  I never get tired of these views of the Bubbles and crystal clear waters of the pond.  And who can forget the Popovers!

WINTERS PEACE

There something so peaceful after a heavy snow.  The surroundings are covered in pure white snow and the sounds are pure.  In this scene the grist mill is silent and the only sound is of the water falling from the mountain stream.
