"Camden" (working title) - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas - Name and Win!

Camden (working title) - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas
I couldn't think of a suitable name for this painting so I'm asking for help.  I will give away one of my petite paintings to the person who comes up with the winning name.  To win, you must be a subscriber to my mailing list.  You can sign up here: and then send your name suggestion to:  

I will announce the winner on September 13.

I can't wait to hear the names everyone comes up with!

You never know when inspiration will strike.  The reference photo I used to create this painting was posted on Facebook by Kelli Costa who is the owner of Gallery Seven in Maynard, MA.  I contacted Kelli and asked permission to use her photo.  She only had one request -- send her a photo of the completed painting..done!

I pulled out the palette knife for this one since there is so much detail in a harbor scene and I wanted to keep it loose and fresh.  In the early stages of this painting, I stayed true to the reference.  By the end, I had changed some colors and details to make the composition more pleasing and balanced. 

"Camden (name TBD)" is a 12 inch square oil on canvas painting presented in a wood floater frame (see additional photos below).  It is available directly from me at
