Niles Pond Peace
36" x 36"
Oil on Canvas

The sublime beauty and history of Gloucester intrigue me. At every quarter turn a new gorgeous vista presents itself. The sky and open space at Niles Pond has captured my heart as one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Recently, and after many years of practice, I have progressed to larger scaled paintings so you can step into them a little more comfortably and maybe even hang out there for a while! In Niles Pond Peace, an empty bench awaits you under the perfect birch tree.
