Was so lovely to be with family over the holiday weekend but also so nice to return home to our welcoming committee of 3 cats! Much work to do for the Christmas Prelude is this coming weekend and I will be in a Craft Fair at the Consolidated School on Saturday and at the Nonantum Hotel in Kennebunkport on Sunday morning for their Breakfast with an Artist. Was happy to manage to take a brisk walk tonight just before dark as the sun quickly set...
We were very fortunate and thankful to see two families on Thanksgiving... while traveling on a misty drizzly day, the sight of the "bridge birds" that sit upon the light poles by the side of the highway were a delight!
Salute and thank you to all of the Veterans and those serving...
On the left is my Dad ( a WW2 veteran) who marched in this years Connecticut Veterans Day Parade and has been visiting schools, sharing his experiences as a combat medic in the 45th Infantry in Europe. My father-in-law served in the Pacific during WW2.
Was unusually warm for November, this ladybug appeared in my shell collection!
To brighten my day, I received this beautiful bouquet in memory of my Mom from a wonderful family from New Jersey... I had met them in my gallery years ago and they visit Maine once or twice a year! It's always wonderful to see them all and listen to their stories! Have just begun to work on a portrait of the youngest members of this family. Thanks so very much!
Every time I walk to and from my studio, this little aster catches my attention... it is very delicate yet strong, for it has weathered the coldest temperatures and winds and yet remains beside the milkweed in all of its' beauty!
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
