“What’s the difference between a hike and a walk?” I was asked. I’ve wasted more thought than you can imagine on this question. Is it terrain, distance, intention?

Following slithering, sliding footprints through a morass, I mentally chided the unseen person ahead of me on their awful choice of shoes with no traction, and it came to me: the answer is footwear. Hikers wears hiking boots, and that’s all there is to it.

You’re also hiking when you bring a stash of toilet tissue with you. If I need to explain that, this painting is not for you.


Hiking, 6X8, oil on archival canvasboard, framed in simple pewter. Shipping is included within the continental United States. For Alaska, Hawaii and international shipping, contact me for an estimate of the surcharge.


If a painting disappoints, I will of course refund your money, on return of the painting back in my Rockport studio. Returned art must be properly packaged, with corner protectors as required and insured to its full value.

All refunds will be processed back to your original method of payment.
