New Paintings - New Exhibits


  I've been painting at the shore during some of the mild winter days. I'm able to paint in my car if it isn't too cold. The following paintings will be added to my "Jersey Shore" series.

  I sketched this scene of St.Catherine's church a few days before Hurricane Sandy hit the area. A few months later I came back to work on the painting. I was able to park right in front to get this view. St. Catherine's has always been one of my favorite New Jersey churches.

"St. Catherine's"  (Spring Lake)      2013    Watercolor   9 1/2" x 13 1/2"  Sold

   The following two paintings depict a couple of the well-known and legendary Asbury Park clubs.

"The Stone Pony" (Asbury Park)      2013      Watercolor      12" x  16"   Sold


 
"Wonder Bar" (Asbury Park)        2013         Watercolor         14" x  7"


 
"Belmar Inn" (Belmar)        2013         Watercolor         14" x  10"

"Shore Home, Warren And Ocean" (Spring Lake)    2013    Watercolor    10" x 7 1/2"  Sold








  I will be exhibiting my "Jersey Shore" series at the following New Jersey Libraries. My intent is to keep these paintings together as a body of work, while making them available for purchase.

  • Ramsey Public Library, Ramsey, New Jersey, May - June 2013
  • Berkley Heights Public Library, Berkley Heights, New Jersey, September - October 2013
