The Story Behind the
Tree Paintings

When I was a young man, we would go to
camp on Sundays. I would shinny up a 30’
pine tree and climb up into the branches,
looking out over my yard kingdom. In the
spring, we would swing birches, in the fall we
would climb apple trees to get at the choicest
fruit. Building tree houses was a summer
passion. I never thought about the danger
and will never forget how it felt to be up
above the rest. This is my passion for trees
and the basis for my tree series. I wanted to
express the feeling of climbing high up into
the tree, the inviting branches waiting for that
tree house or just hanging out above it all.

My watercolor paintings are made in
sections. I call them composite paintings and
see them as both sculpture and painting. I
hope when you see the work, you will
remember your own experiences with your
trees.

If you have a favorite tree, tell me your story,
and let me paint one for you. Price will vary
depending on size, number of pieces and
type of tree.
The Story Behind the
Window Paintings

My love for watercolor started 20 years ago. I
like to paint places I know and many of my
paintings are of places I have been to in
Maine. For the past five years I have been
painting "Windows" that belong to friends and
neighbors. I also enjoy thinking about the
people who live in these homes. Each time I
finish a window thinking it's my last, I find
another window that I want to create a
painting of!

All paintings come matted. I also make
custom frames for them upon request. Prices
range from $200 to $600
