Pittsford Meadow

Behind Schoen Place, there's a beautiful meadow - part of an unworked farm. We were told that at one time they raised miniature horses there.

Braddock Breezes

Had to paint this from a photograph I took in April. The wind was blowing like crazy and extremely cold. It was the only way I could do it.

Late Summer Field

The colors in the weeds really caught my eye, as did the distant trees.

Early Autumn - Mendon Ponds

This was done on a cold and damp morning in Mendon Ponds. The fall colors were just beginning to show. SOLD

Genesee Valley Park Bridge

The colors were spectacular and the water was perfectly calm. The bridges in the park are a terrific subject. SOLD

Jody's Place

While painting this, the neighbor came over and tearfully asked if she could buy it. She explained that the view was loved by her friend who had passed away the day before. I was very honored that she wanted it. SOLD

Morning Meadow - Corbett's Glen

The morning was extremely hot and sticky and the bugs were out in droves. I decided to just work from photos for this one.

Golden Morning

There was a beautiful yellow glow in the sky on this morning - something I never really noticed before, so it made this painting special for me. Even the marsh grass (which is usually artistic suicide for me) came out well. Done at Burger Park on Salmon Creek. This has become one of my favorite paintings.

Irondequoit Bay Morning

Done on a hazy, hot summer morning while standing on the right of way on Empire Blvd. The traffic flying past was a bit unnerving, but the scene itself was calm and pleasant. This painting will be given to the attorney who donated his time and energy to help the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters to incorporate. SOLD
