Fall Ravine

Painting of Stream in the Fall

This is my latest painting, “Fall Ravine,” which I’ve been working on for many months. The image is from a tiny brooklet that runs along a favored walking route near my house. Water, the subject of so many of my paintings, continues to fascinate me. I love the challenge of capturing its movement, splashing over rocks and tree root, pooling in little eddies, and forming patterns of frothy bubbles. To capture the movement, you must stop it for a split-second while leaving the impression that it will, inevitably, continue to rush on. I hope you enjoy the painting as much as I do. Framed Original $1,250, print $120

 

Those Dam Boys

My brothers and I spent countless hours in Bagley brook, which ran through our back yard. When researching this painting I found 2 dams built by the children in Delancey.  Print $110

Brotherly Love

This painting could have been called “Lean on me”. It depicts my nephews, who fought like crazy, but took it for granted they could lean on each other. Print $96

Winter Water in the Catskills

I contemplated adding deer to this painting and finally decided to leave them out. Beavers had been dragging amazingly large trees down to this stream to dam it up. I haven’t been back to see how far they got. The wind was blowing and making it snow from the tree branches. Framed Original $1,250, print $110

Almost Home – The Little Delaware at Bovina

Almost Home

This view stopped me in my car many times before I finally stopped to take photos for this painting.  My brother came up with the perfect title. I loved the stream but it was  the farm in the distance that drew me into the scene. Framed original $950, print $125

Tapping Roadside’s Sentinels

A row of majestic old Maple trees lined this roadside. I was thrilled to see someone was stylizing the old metal sap buckets. Original Framed $399, print $86

 Catskill Stream

I found this very small stream traveling the dirt roads. It was dark and cool which created the perfect conditions for the moss to grow. I have tried unsuccessfully to find it again. Framed original $525, print $86

Fall in Stoddard Hollow

I can still remember exactly what it felt like to sit on the bank across from this scene. It seemed like the trees could keep me safe. It was like nature was giving me one last intense, warmth of color before transforming. Framed print $380, print $85

Final Resting Place

I came across these old jeeps on the hill behind my house. They were resting a few feet away from an abandoned cemetery. It is one of the old family plots with a stone wall surrounding it and tombstones dating back to the 1700.s The jeeps seemed to be on guard watching over the graves. The sun was very intense and so were the shadows they created. Framed print $425, print $86

Fly Fishing God

My friend Bill was giving this name by another fisherman due to his obvious talents. I was talked into going on this fishing trip to Pulaski where the salmon run up the stream in the fall to spawn. It truly was amazing to see 3 feet long fish leap out of the water right next to you. Framed original $925

Poetry in Motion

There truly is an art to fly fishing. After sending several of my cast into trees and other obstacles I sat back and watched Bill show me how it’s done.Framed original $925

Collin’s Dream

Collin’s Dream – This is my very special friend’s childhood farm. She grew up there working the farm with her parents and 2 sisters, milking cows, throwing hay bales and doing the kind of work seldom seen today.  Her mother still resides there maintaining the beauty of the  farm.

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Collin Haight memorial fund. Print $86

DeLancey Porch

This house is in the little village I grew up in. It had been abandoned for several years when I did this painting.  An artist lived here that was a source for lots of stories when I was growing up. He was very prolific and his paintings and pastels are still in countless homes. I inherited a couple of them and have purchased more at local auctions. Print $86

 

Skunk Hollow Porch

For years I have driven past this porch of my way to hunting camp. The original owner must have loved this house to put so much detail into woodwork. It had to be magnificent in it’s day. It has now been purchased and renovations are under way. Print $66

 

Rooftops

The last piles of snow lingered by these buildings. The sun had bleached the red paint on the buildings and the rain rusted the roofs making a perfect painting. Print $56
