      Of his work, Isaacs notes: “Who else gets to go to the world's most extraordinary spots, and be paid to sit contemplating vast expanses of sky and earth, or to paint amidst the delightful intimacy of a friend's garden?"

      Last Sail #2, View From the Belfry and Little Cranberry Island, two 26 x 26-inch Giclee prints (descriptive plaque) capture views as noted in Isaacs’ artist’s statement and are insights seen from within his own “back yard.” Both prints include an impressionistic style with blurred outlines and muted tones, and reflect a similar character found in the style of his oil paintings. Isaacs maintains a studio on Little Cranberry Island in Maine.
