  • Landscape Commission


     Beech Hill Pond, Maine 24×30″


    Here’s another recent commissioned painting.  It’s a view of the pond where the couple was married back in September of this year.  Each day I worked on it was blue sky, but there was a crisp wind, and I think that comes through a bit in the final picture.  Although this September was very warm I’ve never been colder in recent memory than when laying out this painting.  I’ll include a couple of details below.









  • Dalai Lama Portrait

    Late last year I was commissioned by The Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi of the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT to do a portrait of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for the center, and to be presented to the Dalai Lama during his visit to Boston, his 3rd public event with the center at MIT.

    After many iterations, this is the final painting, 24×20″-




    During the event the portrait was privately presented to HHDL, and the center asked for him to do a blessing and write on the portrait.  The portrait, with the Dalai Lama’s writing, will remain part of the Center’s collection at MIT.   Here is a couple of very nice images of the moment:
