Beautiful on the Edges


"Beautiful on the Edges - The Beaches of St Thomas" is a series I began in 2015. I am planning to paint all 40+ of the beaches here. Whenever possible I am working on location in plein air using

either oils or acrylics. The title of the series is from something my sister Sharon said during her visit to Virgin Islands. When she stated "St Thomas is really beautiful on the edges," it resonated with me. It seemed to express the spirit of what I am trying to capture with these paintings.

Rather than paint them all from a similar view point, I am painting what I respond too most about each particular place at the time of my visit. In the case of Magen's Bay for instance, despite the fame of it's long sandy beach, it was a single palm tree there that captured my attention. Interestingly enough, that tree was damaged in a storm and is no longer there. You will find that trees play a major role in many paintings in this series. I also plan to have a sunrise, a sunset, and even a nighttime painting by the time I'm finished. They are of varying sizes.
