A Sense of Space


Gurnet Point

Across Duxbury Bay

This digital image was awarded second place in the open juried exhibition "Favorite Things", which opened on June 17th, 2019, at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable.



Portrait of Myles Alden





Little Myles Alden, age one, a fourteenth generation direct descendent of John and Priscilla, setting off on an adventure of his own.  He explores a brand new world with an unquenchable sense of wonder and a boldness handed down to him through generations, building something completely new. 


What challenges will he confront?  What evils will he face?   What alliances will he make along the way?  Where we he find his joy and sorrow?   What wonders will he set in motion?  What worlds await within him, yet to be born?


There is yet hope for the world, with Myles in it.

Altered Digital Photography


A young girl runs alongside her Schnauzer at Corporation Beach on Cape Cod.  Behind them a building storm sends tumultuous surf to pound against the seawall.


A First Place winner at the prestigious 2016 Winter Art Show of the Duxbury Art Association, this image resembles a watercolor painting.


Materials: Archival quality pigment inks on heavy duty, acid free Somerset Velvet art paper.  The quality presentation features double mats; the bottom mat, which contacts the print itself, is acid free.  The glazing is clear acrylic, in a simple, contemporary black frame.  All hanging hardware is included.

North River Arts Society

2016 Focus on Figures

Honorable Mention


This show is an annual event at NRAS.  I qualified last year with a fantasy piece called Naiad.  This year I had two pieces accepted, and this one received an honorable mention.  Slowly but surely, I'm moving up!



This classic figure study resembles an oil painting.  It won an Honorable Mention at the 2016 Focus on Figures exhibition at the North River Art Society in West Marshfield, MA.


Materials: This quality presentation is comprised of archival quality pigment inks on white prepared canvas, with a UV-blocking glossy finish coating. The frame is simple and contemporary walnut-stained wood, with a tan linen liner and a patterned, gilt inner edge.


Approx Dimensions: Image 8"h x 12"w,  Frame 10"h x 14"w x 1"d


MACMILLAN PIER: Provincetown Panorama

     ...won First Prize in Altered Digital Photography at the Duxbury Art Association's 2015

Midsummer Art Show: Art by the Bay.  Once again I laud the DAA for giving digital art a peer position at their prestigious art exhibition.  It's vision puts the DAA at the leading edge of a new art movement, a vantage that will serve it well in the future when others find there is a lot of catching up to do.






of TITAN has awarded Swan Boats of Titan Second Place in in its 2015 online competition, Nothing but a Dream.  It will be featured on their website for 4 weeks, starting August 28.


You will find a wealth of art on their site, and it changes.  Check it out now and return often.






...won second prize for Altered Digital Photography at 2014 Art by the Bay, which is the Midsummer Show for members of the  Duxbury Art Association.


The DAA deserves kudos, I think, for being one of the first art associations to recognize digital media as an art form unto itself.  They seem to struggle, as we all do, with the terminology in this rapidly developing world.  It is not really photography, although photography is  often a tool used to help create a digital image.  Still, DAA is light-years ahead of the pack in this regard, and I salute it for being so.


UPDATE:  The Tide is Out has become my first image to hang in both the Hall of Honor and the Salon de Refusès.  The sole juror at a Provincetown Art Association Members' Juried Exhibition has declined to give it a second look.


The Path to Nauset Beach

Third Place

2013 Winter Juried Show


These wooden stairs connect the parking lot at Nauset Beach in Orleans with the path across the dunes to the beach.  The path is bounded on either side by sand fence, protecting the fragile dunes ecosystem from the degradartion that comes with human traffic.
