We were on Fish Beach when Annie said, "Rick don't move" she took a photo of the setting sun sky background and the harbor light on my face and hat. Frank also took some shots with his phone, this is one of those shots. Thanks Frank.
Last night was the opening of my show at the Alex von Schlippe Gallery in Groton, CT at the Uconn campus. It runs to September 5th and I have 24 paintings there. It was a lot of fun and well attended. Thanks to the gallery director Julia Pavone for doing such a wonderful job.
This photo was shot by Ted Horowitz from Westport, CT. It is one of many great shots he sent me, thanks Ted. He was standing on the dock while I was painting it and the fog. It was very early in the morning and very foggy, you could hardly see Manana!
In addition to this site, I've started a new blog site. It's called Rick Daskam Small Paintings. You can get there from my link list below. It's all small paintings or studies for larger works. I will be trying to post one a day ...or, as often as I can!
