I stayed on Cape Cod for a week to paint, at the home of a friend who lived in an area I had not yet discovered, a settled island called Seconset with lots of lovely nooks and crannies between the houses. This particular spot was shown to me as if showing a treasure, a hidden spot - and it was a treasure. Though it was overcast, it was quiet and lovely at the end of the access area, and no one bothered me the whole time I was there!

I came across this and thought you might like to see it. It was done in Texas Falls State Park in Vermont, sitting on a picnic table and not knowing yet that I had been bitten by those tiny bugs, I think black flies, under my hairline while I had been sitting over by the falls. Glad I didn't know it then! It was such a peaceful beautiful day.

One of my favorite escape places is the Nubble Lighthouse in York Maine. Set off on a separate island, it is fabulous. The rocks surround the area where cars park to view it, and kids constantly climb up and down the rocks, searching for little crabs in the pools. I've watched my grandsons do this many times. Nothing makes them happier! Such a nice day, and it can be made even nicer by going over to the restaurant carryout and getting some Clam Chowder. Umm. Heaven.

After painting a couple of small pieces looking out at the harbor, I turned and saw this sunlight shining through the trees and hitting the little one in the back. It was fun to paint!

Sometimes I do "Inside Work". It is usually mixed media and often responds to some bit of writing or a poem or music. This quote - which just couldn't be shortened for the title - is one that I find rings so true for me when I am waiting for inspiration to paint. There may be none - just paint and it might happen. Writers and painters are often similar in process.  If you wait for the perfect complete moment, your green ideas will wither away.

What more could you ask? This just kind of jumped onto my paintbrush.

I was painting off the porch in Friendship and wanted to do another small painting before I closed down for the day. But I had been painting the harbor (to my right) all day and wanted something different. Lookng across the street, I saw a garden with irises I had not really noticed before, hidden as it was by trees and parking. I enjoyed painting this even though the rocks made me insane (only for a while!)

Another teeny tiny art work that comes from a fun beginning.

I was really in love with that turquoise and wanted orange to play off it in complements.

It was another play day when I did this. Abstracts always feel like play. I seem to grab curves and intersect lines with them in an opposing way, and then throw on lots of color. Here it looked a little tight and I finished with big splashes of palette knife in bright color. It looks to me like a lima bean hiding in the middle of the party. He was very important right from the beginning but I don't know why!

This little guy is the newest addition to the "Working Waterfront" series. Sometimes I like to work small, sometimes just do creative play. This started as one of those, but I really started to get into it and I like it and now it has formally been admitted to the group. I love the way the yellow and orange-red just bounce around the shop inside the window, and the way the ones in the window kind of shimmer. Hmm, I wonder what tha shop is like now, in the winter? Even with the little stove there, it must be awfully cold.

For two years now I have purchased a gorgeous white Hellebore plant and proceded to almost kill it. Last year I DID kill it. This one is struggling but it is still making it. Hopefully, it will last long enough for me to get it into the ground. (Considering there is about 3 feet of snow out there, it may be a while!) Anyhow, it has now been immortalized in paint. I shared it earlier and lots of my readers liked it. Now, it is your chance to get this sweet piece at a good price, on auction! Bid away!

This little piece is a perfect partner for the last two, making triplets. They look great together. This one was painted on my trip to the island of Islesford, off the coast of aAcadia National Park. Perfect day, roses in just the right place, lovely harbor. It really helped that our trip to that point had all been grey, rainy, and foggy. This was pure bliss to paint.

This piece is nicely framed with a contemporary float frame.

"Harbor Sentries"



6x6 oil on panel

When I was painting in Maine, I was remembering an exercise we did in Carol Marine's class where we counted our strokes. The purpose was to be thoughtful and clear exactly what we wanted to paint, how it would be painted and exactly what color so that we did not have to go back. The process is harder than you might think. So I tried it on this small harborscape I did in Rockport, Maine. This piece had about 50 strokes, total, and I am happy with the way it came out. I call it Harbor Sentries because the masts and posts look very much like guards. 

This piece is nicely framed with a contemporary float frame.

Remembering good days in this one. I even have it in my office now, but I will give it up if you want to buy it! This painting is one from Rockport, Maine. I was at the little park on the harbor and near the building there. While I was there a schol bus brought a whole bunch of happy kids to swim at the beach that is hidden behind the spit of land in front. But the flag announces its location!

I was again trying to use my limited strokes, but this time I did not count them, just tried hard to make every stroke count. But I had a problem, the rain started and I was only half finished. I was able to finish it in the studio, however, and I like how it came out!

This piece is nicely framed with a contemporary float frame.

Here's another ode to summer in the middle of winter. I think posting flowers is a good idea, don't you? Last summer, I was sad when a big storm knocked down all my delphinium just as they filled out. But the upside is I got to pick massive handfuls of them for the house. This one was lucky enough to go to the studio and get painted. I am getting excited about painting flowers with strong shadows from a strong close light!

I felt that we needed something spring like and decided on this little bird perched on a metal jug with some buttercups. So you know it wasn't done in February! I am very happy with this little (8x8) piece. I like the light on the bird, and the fresh buttercups bouncing against the blue wall leaving cool shadows. It was challenging to get the dull bronze container correct with some highlights but not too many. It's just a happy piece!

This is it, and my back is about 20 feet from the door, and I am on a patio.  Down below, you see people walking and kayaks getting ready to go explore, marsh, streams, and ocean in the distance plus an iconic little cabin that is positioned just right.

My husband came to the Cape for the weekend so I brought him along on a painting expedition. We went to the Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center in Sandwich, just over the bridge. Found a great place to set up - a picnic shelter! shade! and a bathroom nearby. Life is good sometimes. The walkway in front of us along the canal was quite alive with people of all types walking by on their way to the beach to the right here, or just strolling. Quite a few had fishing gear. These three were set up near me and although they weren't quite that close together, that's what we call artistic license! It was fun to paint -I got most of the figures and all of the landscape right on site and only needed a few touch ups later. The figures did make it a longer painting to do - there is no way around that complexity.
