At The Reefs
A painting of the original entrance to The Reefs Hotel. The palm forms an important counter balance to the white shutter and large white portions of the chimney.
This is one of a series of three paintings that were displayed together in the Botanica show. I like to depict Bermuda cedar in an appropriate setting. I was pleased with the way I rendered the perspective of the gate.
Bird of Paradise
A painting of a Bird of Paradise plant in my yard. I chose to focus on only one of the blooms in order to frame it with the green of the leaves and provide a sense of depth.
This is one of a series of three paintings displayed together in the Botanica series. The Antiguan Anole is known as the "Warwick Lizard" in Bermuda. Once peculiar to Warwick, its habitat has spread throughout the island over the last 20 years.
This is one of the paintings from the Bermudiana show. My wife Deanne quickly took possession of it. It is a painting of a house found behind the house of my youth. I was drawn to the geometric position of the vent, offset by my framing of the peak.
One of three paintings displayed together in the Botanica show, Mailbox is actually found near to the "Inwood" gate. One of many mailboxes that are actually still serviced. The sign is a 'restored' version - there is no longer a Saturday mailbox collection in Bermuda.
This painting is another from the Bermudiana series. I have always been intrigued by the Buttery- a common sight on Bermuda buildings. It is constantly debated whether the structure is simply decoration, or if the peak actually helps cool the room beneath it.
A painting of my house featuring some midday sun coming across the front of the building. The low viewing angle allows us to see through the shutters to the windows behind.
Another painting from the Bermudiana series. This building is found along East Broadway as you enter into Hamilton. Each chimney was built by a different mason as can be seen by the different style of each one.
This view was a surprise as I walked around the Old Town trying to find imges for the St. George's show. I like the older chimney in front with its chips and flaws.
I have always wanted to represent one of the most fragrant flowers of Bermuda. I particularly like this extremely colourful variety found just outside the perfume factory.
The poinciana is a beautiful tree found all over Bermuda. The flowers can vary in intensity from an orange to a deep red, and are a familiar sight during the summer.
One painting in the Bermudiana series. This building can be found on Harbour Road as you head away from Hamilton. The chimney is a prominent feature on any Bermuda home. The Bermudiana series is full of them!
St. Peter's Church
St. Peter's Church is an icon of the Old Town. I have always appreciated the geometric forms of the triangle and the circle in the façade at the top of the main stairs.
Heart of Hibiscus
This is one of a number of pink hibiscus paintings I have produced. What I appreciate about this one is that it is a focus of the flower alone with no supporting foliage.
This is a painting that is part of the Botanica series. It is the upper portion of a traveller palm, and shows the effect of light on the translucent leaf. I was particularly pleased with the way the wind burned tips of the leaves were developed.
Hibiscus Cottage Window
This painting is part of the Bermudiana series, and is also a painting of the house I grew up in. This window is the one we would look out of to see who was coming up the drive. I was particularly proud of the way I rendered the shutters.
The unfinished church is an unforgetable location. The ruin is a point of interest for many who visit Bermuda. Does anyone really know why it was never finished?
