I feel like it is time to “mix things up” in the studio. Those undertones have been brewing for a while. It is a way of keeping things fresh, while opening myself up to a different means of expression. The experience feels …. scary, exciting, friendly, unfamiliar, raw, awkward and at times it leaves me […]
Both my husband and I are very fortunate to have the interest and the resources to expand our worlds through our artistic pursuits in photography and painting. For this, we are thankful. We recently returned from a 3 week holiday in Italy which included a 10 day workshop at an incredible vineyard, Dievole in the […]

Wandering … In my painting themes, I am traveling about between Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont. We stumbled upon this barn on the famed Route 100 on the east side of the Green Mountains. It is one of many idyllic scenes on this route. Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing.
Captured …. As I mentioned earlier in this challenge, I try to have my camera with me at all times, never knowing when you will happen upon a scene that asks to be painted. When I was delivering two 30 day challenge paintings, on Agricultural Avenue in Rehoboth, I passed this field, then immediately backed […]
