Winter Wall ArtCastle Hill Light

At the Inn at Castle Hill, Newport, Rhode Island, it is not difficult to walk the path and wind up at a promontory from which you can view this striking lighthouse. I keep coming back to this image from among my assorted lighthouse paintings. The image has a power about it, in the sky, in the sea, in the tumult of the waves and currents, I find appealing. Other viewers have commented to me that this is true…for them, also. Here is Castle Hill Light. Framed prints in a number of different materials are available from this website.

Castle Hill Light,” hangs in a business setting.

Below, see “Castle Hill Light,” in a bedroom setting. Note, the frame color, border and matte size are in nice proportion to the simplicity and power of the lighthouse image, itself. You can adjust these variables on my website– and plug in your preferred materials, sizes and finishing techniques. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, perhaps such a gift print is in order?

Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? An art print? Maybe right now, still early in the New Year– instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Lift someone’s spirits! Giving art, giving prints can be a joyful experience! When I give a print, it most assuredly is a joyful experience. 

Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the new year moves into February, now. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. In our ongoing pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a winter art print…perhaps a gift to a friend or relative.

Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature.

“Business Advice” for day: We have weathered the first blizzard in some number of years. Around here, we got about 24.” In Sharon, MA, not far away a reported 30″ fell from the skies. We are now three days past this storm and the clean up continues. I have yet to get clear a number of trails, porches and paths on this property. Deer come to the house to nibble on Rhododendron and Myrtle– food supplies are thin, I conclude. A couple of young deer look skinny, they eat with a certain ravenousness. In my view, we live in these times, many of us, with a certain ravenousness, a certain disquiet, discontent, a hunger, a distinct certainty that times must and will be better– safer, freer, more in keeping with our God-given human spirits. This is my notion of the moment.

For many small businesses, this certainly must be the attitude at least among some of the owners who have seen trying times over the past two years. Many continue to see trying times and will for the foreseeable future. These times are made more difficult by a Government that floods the economy with cash and positions itself via masks, mandates and the withholding of certain helpful pharmaceuticals to exact controls of one kind or another over our population for indeterminate periods of time. We notice. We size it all up. We will continue to ask a lot of questions— a lot of questions, let me reiterate. In time, the Truth will come forth and prevail. We will understand much more of this period in history than we do at present. Once again, the spirit of Hope and determination is in the air. Let it be so.

A special thanks for your interest and support of my work. You may find my new NFT art interesting, seen here on Rarible. Some videos of creative work are now on YouTube. Find a mixed-bag on Soundcloud. And, lastly, check out some art blogs in SOUND on Anchor.

Been in the visual arts all professional life, am eager to post examples of Instagram prints, photo prints, graphic and fine art (painting) a disciplined fashion...signs of the times, if you will.
