Belmar Fishing Club - Belmar, New Jersey

As I wait for the initial underlayer of sky to dry on the Pizza Town painting, I was able to stretch, sketch and underpaint most of this historical place in Belmar.

I plan on taking the Pizza Town painting all the way to completion, it's too tempting not to.  I am going to blast this one with artificial light against the deep blue twilight sky.  I think this could be one of my best paintings to date. 

I have been making a lot of starts on paintings, but not finishing any up and now I have 11 going at the same time.  So, I think that it's time to start wrapping some of these babies up.

I also plan on starting up my ebay auctions again soon.  I am going to approach these little ones in a more sketchy, loose and impressionistic way.  I think that they will still have the power of the gallery pieces, yet be more painterly and true to nature. 
I'm very excited about this and I have to thank Stephen Magsig for the inspiration his little gems have given me.  They are even better in person. (I own 3 so far....)  His gallery pieces are stunning, but these little ones are so powerful. 

Stay tuned.........
