The Wreck at Beaver Tail Lighthouse


My latest painting of The Wreck at Beaver Tail Lighthouse

This lighthouse is a fun place to visit, especially on a day with high surf. It's at the south end of Jamestown, RI, at the west edge of the Newport Harbor entrance.

Sachuest Point Park / underway



Here is my view of Sachuest Point Park in Newport, RI, coming along nicely. I'm happy! There's a bench near the southern tip of the park and trail, on the east side, so this view is as one would be looking to the northeast.

It's a lovely place to walk, and the rocky coast offers many interesting vistas. I'll be making many more oil paintings from this park, both plain aire and studio pieces. 

24" x 12", oil on canvas

A Private Beach View


A fine start of a 12" by 24" oil of a private beach view, on the east side of Newport, RI. There's more to do once it dries, but I'm happy with this image.

Castle Hill Lighthouse


As a nocturne we can see the red warning beacon of the Castle Hill Lighthouse, and being situated so close to the water, it's easy to imagine violent waves and tough weather along the rocky coast. 

This small pastel is available through the Sheldon Fine Art Gallery at Bowen's Wharf in Newport, RI.

Sachuest Point Park / Start


This is an underpainting and a good start for a view at Sachuest Point Park in Newport, RI. See above for the more developed image. There's a bench near the southern tip of the park and trail, on the east side, so this view is as one would be looking to the northeast.

It's a lovely place to walk, and the rocky coast offers many interesting vistas. I'll be making many more oil paintings from this park, both plain aire and studio pieces. 

I plan to add a few more details to this one, but will keep the existing color scheme. I'll make another similar painting with more green and natural colors, but I love this fall looking contrast of orange and blues. Perhaps the trees and grasses would turn this color after a hurricane sprays saltwater. I've seen that kind of salt burn along the coastal vegetation in North Carolina after a bad storm. It takes a while, but returns to green in time.

Newport Harbor Light for Christmas




This is the Newport Harbor Lighthouse on Goat Island in Newport, Rhode Island. It's actually decorated like this for Christmas but I've added the internal red glow. 

This 8x10 pastel is available through the Sheldon Fine Art Gallery at Bowen's Wharf in Newport. 

Finished Study



That's good, now on to another view and a little different, smaller building, with a bit more sky, then room for the Colonial Inn sign.

Straightening Things Up



Moving along! Nice to have an enthusiastic reaction from those passing by. Off to a fun start.

First Sketch



I've checked in at The Arts Council and already started my first painting. It's a nocturne, of course, soon to add candle and lantern lights inside and out of the old Colonial Inn, which dates to 1759. 

This is a 14x11 canvas study, and next I'll sketch in a larger 20x16, covering the entire piece of linen and aligning all the elements. Stay tuned! And please share the link.

St. Croix Paintings


Here's my first St. Croix painting, a view (without houses) from the Columbus Landing Beach, northwest of Christiansted near Salt River. It's oil on linen, about 10" tall by 14.5" wide and is not stretched, so it can be matted and framed with glass or mounted and framed flat, or mounted if preferred.  I'm asking $400 for my first picture--below is the matching piece.
Signed J. H. Anglin St. Croix 2016

N/A



And this is my second St. Croix painting, a view from the Columbus Landing Beach looking east toward the Salt River Inlet and a favorite. It's oil on linen, about 10" tall by 14.5" wide and is not stretched, so it can be matted and framed with glass or mounted and framed flat, or mounted if preferred.

New Nocturnes from St. Croix


Moon Mill Nocturne oil on linen $200
unframed for framing with a mat & glass, mounting or stretching

One of the interesting things on the island of St. Croix are the many ruins of old windmills that were used in the production of sugar from cane. With the very consistent easterly Tradewinds it made sense to construct these towers to do the work of crushing and squeezing plants. Those who built them were harkening back to European design and specifically Danish style windmills.

Morning Mill    oil on linen $125 unframed

All that remains today on St. Croix are these amazing stone conical towers, which at the ground floor doorway are 3 feet thick or more and are constructed of a variety of brick, stone and coral. On the walls you might see a piece of coral with fan striation next to colorful stone. It's a very attractive, eclectic kind of masonry. The blades and vanes of the windmill 'fans' are long gone, as are the superstructures that sat atop and housed the upper mechanism or transmission, if you will.

I'm starting to paint scenes and images from TheBuccaneer.com resort near Christiansted and their mill neat their check in point and now used for romantic dinners and as a venue for weddings. I'll paint many daytime paintings of it, to be sure, but I really like imagining the blades or vanes and other parts, for The Buccaneer Mill and others. And I do love my nocturnes.

A gallery visitor recently spotted these and recognized the colors on one as something like a Remington nocturne. I was fortunate to see many of those at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth as well as Remingtons in the Sid Richardson collection and they did have their effect on me. It's amazing how much color one can see in them once you start looking. This windmill and the others are fun things to paint! This is a 16 x 20 inch oil on linen, and in process, and probably will be for sale soon at The Buccaneer.

Highway 70 Barn


This is the well kept old barn on the curve of Highway 70 between Kinston and La Grange in eastern North Carolina. A great produce stand is open just to the west in the summer -by the gas station.

Bridge No. 5


Another in my series of bridge images. This is after mybsecond painting session. I'll do a few more things to it. It is oil about 14 inches wide.  

I grew up in Pittsburgh, the land of bridges, so perhaps that explains part of my interest in this nice example at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. 




North Beach / Virginia Beach


This is the larger finished version of the smaller study below (which I love very much). At 24 by 36 inches this oil painting is a very pretty reminder of days gone by and days still to come --once this cold weather is gone for a while. 

Just a few more touches and it will be listed for sale here and then on display and sale at one of the Stravitz Galleries --it is in the Stravitz Laskin Avenue gallery now, framed with a complimentary simple but substantial gold frame.


Night Night Rudee


9 x 12 inch oil on on linen study for a new nocturne

As with the painting below, EVENING SURFERS, this is a nice little study ready for a few more touches when it is dry, and then when all finished I'll consider making a larger painting --maybe at 30 X 40. 

This is a winter harbor with not too much going on these days, but some people like it that way. I like it all seasons. At least this is one of the rhythms of the place.
