Finding a Centerline Diptych (2)



I love to challenge myself to paint a Diptych every now and again. Its most important that the each painting has a strong composition as well as reading as part of a pair. That pair must read harmoniously and together have an equally strong impact.

Its also for esthetic reasons as in my home the contractor decided that it was a good idea to put the thermostat right in the middle of a hallway. As a result I cant hang one big painting but a diptych works perfectly.

Two paintings work well in a master bedroom or on either side of a statement piece of furniture.

Dancing in the Long Grass

40″ x 80″ | Diptych | Oil on Canvas | CJK

When working “en plein air” everything is done wet on wet and in one sitting – often referred to as – alla prima. Working fast to capture the information you need outdoors, before the bugs or heat get ya! In the studio more time can be given to some decision making! Hope you like this one. “Dancing in the Long Grass”! Which is only a notion in Florida, as you would only chance dancing in long grass if wearing protective snake boots…. LOL

Here are close up photos of each painting –

Coastal Paintings 1 – 2 – 3


48″x36″ | Seascape Diptych


Working with a strong composition in each painting means this works together as a series of three painting. A triptych or as a diptych or as one!


48″ x 48″ | Oil on Canvas | Available

Here’s how they look together


– if you’ve got a space big enough to take (48″ x 36″) (48″x48″) (48″ x36″)


(48″ x 36″)(48″ x 48″)(48″ x 36″)


Not so glam setting – storage room – but you get a sense of size.

St Augustine Sunset Series

The Sunset St Augustine series – these were fun to paint en plein air and studio, they are painted in a warm palette and reflect the heat of our little old St Augustine, these views are from Vilano driving into the city looking across the marsh and bay! In one the St Augustine lighthouse is visible and in the second The Bridge of Lions was open and so from a distance this was just visible on the horizon. Enjoy
