Fresh Off The Easel

My painting “Rescue Basket Ready” was  accepted into the permanent collection of the United States Coast Guard. The inaugural exhibition of the 2015 collection at the Salmagundi Club will run from July 12 to July 25.

About this painting:

Petty Officer 3rd Class Jamie Smith, an aviation maintenance technician assigned to Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles, prepares to lower a rescue basket from an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter during a training exercise in the Olympic mountains, Aug. 19, 2014. The aircrew conducts a safety brief before each hoist to ensure every crew member is aware of the plan and all concerns and potential hazards are addressed.

This is my latest painting from a three hour session with the model and was finished in my studio. “Minding His P’s and Q’s” is a 14” x 11” oil on board.
