He creates his oil paintings in his studio in Glastonbury. His current interest is painting the Maine Coast – the sea, rocks and the splendor of that coast. Figures are also appearing from time to time in these paintings. The landscape has always been a part of his subject mix.  Still life flower paintings are a part of his subject matter in Spring and Summer.

Nantucket Island is a very special place to the artist. It is a great source of inspiration every time he visits the island.

Ed’s oil paintings are the mixture of the colors and textures of the paints with emotion.  Out of that blending comes the excitement of watching the landscape or seascape struggle through.

And, when he can share some of that excitement with others…  That’s what it’s all about.

Ed lives in Glastonbury, CT where he has his home and studio.
