Lilacs have always held a special facination for me. Each year I am always amazed by their beauty, delicacy, grace and of course, scent. When people ask me about favorite subjects, generally a painting of lilacs will top the list. I hope the enjoyment I felt while working with this grouping will be felt by you as well.

"In from Emerald Isle, Port L'Hebert, Nova Scotia", oil on panel, 18 x 24

After having spent a week on Cape Cod I have become more inspired than ever to continue with my seascape work. I have fallen in love with the marshes and wetlands around the Cape, not to mention the gracious skies. We enjoyed a day trip to Martha's Vineyard and I enjoyed having the opportunity to see the work of some very favorite and admired artists of National renown.

I hope you enjoy a painting from a previous trip to Nova Scotia.

This time of year the garden begins to put on a show. After months of waiting, what a wonderful treat to taste the first summer tomatoes. Spending an afternoon with these vegetables painting a still life is another way to enjoy the bounty of the garden.

New Beginnings

After having written that title, I wonder how many new blogs are started each day with the same title. Oh well, at this point I do not have time to give that much thought, so I will forge ahead.

My plan for this blog is to spend some time adding photos of new work several times a week as an additional marketing resource . I hope anyone who might read this will take some time to add thoughts or comments about the work.

The painting is an oil titled, "Late Summer's Light." Living in Vermont, with such long winters, the end of summer is always bitter sweet. The warm days are over, yet the colors of fall are soon on the way and soon, cold winter days. I love this time of year as the trees teed to take on a yellowish cast to the foliage, a sure sign that change is on the way. I hope you enjoy the painting.
