Hi everyone! I have an upcoming workshop, plein air painting in beautiful East Hampton, NY. We will be painting the historic area near Town Pond, mere footsteps from the home and studio of the great Thomas Moran ✨ If you are interested, please visit my website (link in bio) and click “Upcoming Workshops” for further details.

Dreaming of warmer weather...a painting I did alongside @lisaannrutledge , of a favorite building of mine in Savannah..beautiful, quirky and proud, just like the city itself. I’m going to do a bit more tweaking in the studio still, but thought I’d share it, alongside a photo I snapped one afternoon.

♡I see everything black.
♥Well, close your eyes.
-I still see darkness.
-Inspire light...exhale fear.
-Who looks at me?
-I don.t remember me.
-That I feel is me?
-Yes...do you remember?
-It.s been too long.
-It.s time to go back to you real home.
My month in Savannah, in paintings 🎨 These are not fully completed yet, I’ll definitely be re-assessing back in the studio, but I am very happy with the work I’ve done during this trip. I tried to challenge myself with more complex architecture, compositions, and pushing these to a further level of completion in the field by working on them multiple days. Many of these scenes were things I was too scared to try last year! The church scene is particularly special to me, as I was too scared to A. Be on a 6th floor balcony painting and B. Attempt to paint such a complex scene and building!! I love architecture so much and am always amazed by what humans can create..it was humbling to attempt to capture the city’s beauty ✨

I don't have a good photo of my finished drawing, but here's a look at it when it was a work in progress.

First pass on this today, oil on Birch panel. I did some sketches of this beautiful building, home to @alexraskinantiques , last year, and this trip I finally got around to painting it. The patina of this building is so enchanting...it brings me back to Italy, but at the same time is so uniquely Savannah ✨
Some 10 and 20 minute drawings from yesterday at @thestudioschoolsavannah . These were drawn on toned paper, with an Ebony 8B pencil and white chalk. It’s been such a pleasure drawing the figure these last weeks. If you’re in the Savannah area and you love drawing, painting, coffee and nice people, I definitely recommend stopping by the studio! ✨
In progress, from today ⛪️🎨 This has been an interesting challenge...I wanted to paint this view last year and didn’t have the nerve! This year I figured i’d go for it, for better or worse. Working on a 3 ft wide balcony definitely makes me appreciate being able to easily back up in normal painting circumstances (and how much I love to stand and paint, sitting is weird!)
I had such an enjoyable morning drawing at the open studio at @thestudioschoolsavannah . Lovely bunch of artists, and a wonderful model that I drew way back during my days at @scaddotedu ! Here are a few 25 minute drawings I did with @nitramcharcoal on toned paper...I felt like I could have kept drawing all day ✏️
