Sea Monster plates, tiles and bowls.

Here’s a few bowls from this summer’s class.

I did all the paintings, my wife Naomi made the bowls.

I’m working on a book of Sea Monsters…  Politicians who have said stupid things about the gulf oil spill

Watercolor Painting of McSorley’s Ale House

This is a painting I just finished of Mc Sorley’s Ale House in New York.  It’s one of my favorite places. I spent quite a bit of time there, when I went to school in Rochester at RIT.   I know, it was a long commute, and as John Belushi said in animal house,  “7 years of college, down the drain.”

Inked drawings for Italian Sketchbook

Here are a few inked sketches I did on my trip to Italy. Most are from reference photos that I shot, although a couple are from life. I shot 7800 composite photos in 2 weeks just in case. I save time by shooting from the hip and it doesn’t disturb the locals. I’m trying to do a new blurb sketch book of images from Italy. It’s a challenge to do a 100 paintings for a book. Stay tuned.


Mr Panoramaman photo of The Florian Cafe, Venice

Here’s a composite shot of the interior of the Florian Cafe. We were there a couple of weeks ago when no one else was. I had the whole place to myself to shoot for a few minutes. It’s across from the Doge’s palace and just down the arcade a bit. After 3 or 4 cups of expresso a day, you don’t have to sleep anymore and are invincible…. kinda.
I recommend.


Nantucket Sketchbook by Roger De Muth

Series of Water Color & Ink Paintings of Nantucket/ Sconset

I’ve been working on a series of 32 water color paintings and now about half way through the series. I do a tight pencil sketch, then ink the drawing with waterproof sepia ink, then do the painting over everything. Take a look at the series when you get a chance.

It takes my car awhile to sign them. Ha, Ha….


Dead Squirrel water color kit.

Here’s a detail of my “Dead Squirrel Water Color Kit” from my summer ceramics class. Brushes rest on the top of each of the upended feet. There’s nothing like a dead squirrel to warm the heart is there?
