“Pitching in the Blue”, 30×40 oil painting by Brad Betts, ASMA.
“Swordfishing”, exhibited in the 33rd Annual International Marine Art Exhibition at The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport.
“Back in the Day, Somes Sound” is a 30″ x 40″ painting commissioned by the Gallery at Somes Sound. Basing my work on a circa 1900 black & white photograph, I wanted to bring life, color and light to this historic scene. After visiting Somesville and studying old photographs, what amazed me the most was how much of this scene still exists today. Painting and researching an historic moment in time is always a fulfilling journey… it creates a deep connection with the people and places of the past and it changes your view of the present.
