Notes From My Studio
This is day 39 of my 90 day challenge to do one new painting from life each day. Sometimes what you learn from a painting is more important than the painting itself. The big challenge with this one was all of the whites, which can be a ridiculously tough color to paint well. To make […]

“Mirror, Mirror…” This is day 34 of my 90 day challenge to do one new painting from life each day. The title is “Mirror, Mirror…”, taking it’s cue from the reflections in the silver creamer.

What Collectors Are Saying
"I feel privileged to own such a beautiful work of art. It brings grace to my home, as well as feelings of warmth and peace."
"Museum quality, perfect work. Beautiful, sophisticated, and poised."
"The variety of his paintings over the years has made multiple purchases greatly satisfying. Each work is unique and awe-inspiring because his ability is transcendent."
I’ve known Jeff and collected his work for several years now. I always look forward with great anticipation when he shows his new work at local galleries and at art shows around the Boston area. The realism he achieves is astonishing. He brings a remarkable precision and clarity to his Still Lifes, and his compositions are always thoughtful and interesting. I always stop, look, and marvel at the paintings of his that I have hanging on my walls. I am both proud and honored to have him as part of my collection.
"We have several of Jeff's paintings. While they are usually paintings of very everyday things, what he does with them is extraordinary. Reflections and light through glass are masterfully shown, and are particular examples of the 'inherent' light we see in all the things he paints, and that we love seeing in our house."
