Vacationland (detail)

Tuesday, May 24, 2011


The painting of the snowman and young woman is finished. It's currently being photographed and colorproofed by my friend Ken Woisard. Here's the final piece:

I chose not to add a third figure as it seemed to muddy the waters. Instead I added a bit of clutter to the porch and the red plastic sled filled with sticks in the foreground. The title (for now) of the piece is "Spring Snow". It has been a very long transition from Winter to Spring this year, so continuing to work on this series of winter themed paintings has seemed quite natural. I'm not sure I'll be able to keep it up once the weather turns to summer, though I do have at least one more that I'd like to paint before moving on.


  1. Hi David,
    I just wanted to say that I am signed up on your email list with this blog, and I love your updates, and the paintings you post.
    I am enjoying your snow series. Even though I am anxious for Summer to arrive here in Maine.

  2. Thanks Debbie. If you see the sun here on the coast let me know!

  3. Hey the sun is out today, here on the coast!! Gorgeous day...but it's hard to see over the height of the grass on the lawn!
    Two weeks of rain was a bit much, don't you think? But I suppose it kept us in the studio working. Glass is always half full !


  4. Without a doubt! I think I'm going to ask the neighbor's son to mow so I can stay in the studio
