A short return visit to Bermuda!


Ahhhhh…. It was such a pleasure to return to the island of turquoise waters, white roofs, colorful flowers, kiskadees, tree frogs, and the kindest people on the planet. It was wonderful to see so many friends again. (It was very hard to believe it had been three years since my 2011 Masterworks residency.)

Many thanks to the organizers of the Arts Project for inviting me to teach some workshops! Emma, Martine, and Helen did a wonderful job, and their concept is very compelling. Bermuda, always a destination for excellent recreation, can also be a destination for cultural exchange and education. St. George’s in particular has so much to offer. I wish the Arts Project much success, and look forward to visiting again. Here is a link to the Arts Project Facebook page:

I came primarily to teach, but I was happy to do some painting too. Two weeks was such a short time — I’ll just have to return again since there is so much more I’d like to paint! Here are some paintings and photographs to share some of Bermuda’s unique beauty:














Warmest thanks to all my dear Bermuda friends, including the latest Masterworks Artist in Residence, Kal, whose political cartoons will be the talk of the island!

It’s back to New England for a bit now. I’m looking forward to doing some painting in the Portsmouth/Kittery area again, and to some more time in Maine. If you are an artist interested in an Acadia Artist Retreat (October 6-12), please check out this program on Schoodic. I’m very pleased to be included as one of the program leaders:


It will be a beautiful time to be in Acadia…
