Marsiliana Paintings

These are a few of the paintings I worked during my free time over the past ten days. The first is from the same spot where I painting the same large landscape ten years ago. I got a bit worried at one point, “What if my painting has gotten worse?”

The Marsiliana. Oil on linen, 80 x 100 cm.

The next three are all from the same spot, just playing around with different light effects.

The Entrance to the Marsiliana, Back-lit. Oil on linen, 50 x 70 cm.

The Entrance to the Marsiliana, Overcast. Oil on panel, 25 x 35 cm.

The Entrance to the Marsiliana, Side-lit. Oil on panel, 20 x 30 cm.

I also did a bunch of little sketches while doing demonstrations, but they didn’t make the cut.


  1. No, I don’ t think you need worry about your painting getting worse (in fact it looks as brilliant as ever) but I suppose being a little paranoid does keep one on one’s toes.
    How long did you take to finish it?

  2. Marc, a completely unrelated comment/request – there is a painting of yours on the Grenning Gallery website called ‘Macaroni Beach, Mustique’ that is posted in a photo resolution of very poor quality. Any chance you have a better shot of it that you can post on the blog site? The thumbnail is just so enticing.

  3. Wonderful work, and excellent blog, you have further inspired me to get outdoors and paint!

    An acknowledgment of our creator and the limitations of our mind is very wise. When we behold nature, we are left without excuse.

    My sincerest condolences for the loss of your beautiful wife.

    Keep up the tremendous work.
