A Couple of Sketches of Paintings-to-Be

I haven’t been painting much lately, but wanted to share two sketches of some paintings I will be working on beginning tomorrow night… as well as a great quote!


My family and I spent 9 gorgeous days in Boqueron, Puerto Rico. We returned, rested, to some dirty snow in Boston last night. Inspired by the colorful casitas, sleepy fishing town, and turquoise waters, I sketched my version of Boqueron, and hope to put to paint at some point.

A Bit o’ Boston

Also sketched while on vacation, a non-traditional Boston Skyline for an upcoming commission. This will be for a baby’s city-themed nursery. How wonderfully creative!

And finally, a truthful quote, sent from a friend — but I later found it for sale as a print on Etsy.
