About The Artwork

The Coastal Bait Company is located at the end of Customs House Wharf in Portland, Maine. It supplies bait fish to lobstermen for use in their lobster traps. This painting shows bait being bulk loaded onto a truck for delivery. What drew me to this scene was the way the truck and figures divided the painting into interesting negative shapes. This painting was juried into the 2018 "Industrial Maine: Our Other Landscape" exhibition at the University of Southern Maine in Lewiston.

I was born in Long Beach, California in 1949. My initial foray into art was as a ten-year old when my parents enrolled me in watercolor lessons. A gradually developing (and undiagnosed until some years later) case of nearsightedness however diminished my interest. (How can you paint something that you can’t see clearly?) By the time I was outfitted with glasses, I was on his way to a career in science, receiving a Ph.D. in physiology from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1976. After a stint as a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical College of Wisconsin, I taught medical students how their lungs function and did research in pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology at the Northeast Ohio Medical University. After retiring and moving to Maine with my wife Dawn in 2007, and some fifty years after my first lessons, Dawn and artist Joye Moon, convinced me to pick up a paintbrush again. Since that time, I have been privileged to learn from artists Joye Moon, Judith Kinsman, Guy Corriero, Dennis Rafferty, Russel Whitten, Susan Roux, Dan Graziano, and of course my immensely talented wife. I paint in oil, acrylic, and watercolor and am a member of the Art Guild of the Kennebunks. My paintings have been juried into shows of the New England Watercolor Society, the Rockport Art Association, the University of Southern Maine, and the Union of Maine Visual Artists. My work can be seen at the Wright Gallery in Cape Porpoise, Maine, and online on both my website, and
