Narragansett Inn's Outbuildings

Narragansett Inn Outbuildings

This painting is from a photograph I took on Block Island, RI this summer.  The Narragansett Inn sits on the shores of the Great Salt Pond with spectacular views of the marina.  Behind the Inn are several simple outbuildings that caught my eye on the way to the The Oar Restaurant for lunch. I experimented with a magenta underpainting, which I think was successful.  Oil on 5X7 Gessobord.


  1. Don't you love it when a painting just pops out of the landscape for you? Very nice work.

  2. Thank you Helen. If we could only stop our car every time we saw one and take a picture. But that is what vacations are for.
