This is a signed digital print of an original painting, “Serenity”, pastel, that’s 5 x 20, just a long which I painted to fit a frame I recycled.


This sailboat drifted lazily for hours on the calm waters of Lake Arthur in Western Pennsylvania. As the August afternoon tended toward evening, the sky began to grow pink and the shadows darkened and lengthened, and the serene moment seemed to last for hours.

Painted en plein air as I sat on one of the beaches at the north end of the lake, watching this sailboat was one of my favorite afternoons; this painting always takes me back to that day.

Because of the odd size of this painting, the only reasonable reproduction is a giclee or a digital print, but I also offer custom framing.

Framed print

I use a white mat with a plain square 1″ pine frame in the sample above. Other mat and frame choices may cost more.


Shipping within the US is included in the cost of each print.

Prints up to 16″ x 20″ are shipped flat in a rigid envelope. Larger prints are shipped rolled in a mailing tube unless otherwise requested; flat shipping is an extra cost because it’s oversized.
