My realist oil paintings applaud the beauty of the ocean and are driven by nostalgia of childhood summers at Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Long Island. I began this series at the end of my father's - an avid sailor's - life. I found it cathartic to explore my memories of sailing with my dad from this angle. Mostly I focus on solitude and stillness and many of those calm and serene pieces have sold. Although sometimes I'll paint the collaborative excitement and momentum of wind-filled sails.
