The Art Teacher- New painting
Completed on 4-25-2017. 12x16 on a cradled wood panel with painted sides. My idea of an art teacher. I have vivid and fond memories of my first art teacher in elementary school. The first day she came into the art room and drew a picture of a mountain landscape, which at 6/7 years old, I was quite blown away by! Then she showed us how to draw one too. (:

The Charming Gardener SOLD
SOLD Happy Spring ! Just completed this 18x24 painting. I really enjoyed creating this piece. I love the quote by Marcel Proust which inspired me to paint a renaissance style woman tending to her grand garden with her daughter helping in the background. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend and holiday. For sale on my website.

What I'm working on.... The Charming Gardener
I am working on another 18x24 canvas this week. I guess I am starting to think about spring and flowers finally. I must confess I love painting flowers but not gardening so much.
I love the quote by Marcel Proust
"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Thank You.
I have a few charming gardeners in my life.

Really coming together now. I woke pretty early and spent most of the day. The colors are so much more lovely then they appear in my phone photo!

Channeling Matisse ------
I have decided to do a more expressive style piece of an interior. I 've had an 18x24 stretched canvas staring at me, I mostly work on wood panels, but for this piece it's perfect. I am finding that painting quickly and without restriction can be very exciting as well as therapeutic.
I have three sons and my middle son Maxwell now 26 living in Brooks Maine has decided to give up organic farming for his true passion - Painting! He studied at the Museum School in Boston but then started an organic farm with his partner three years ago only to realize his true calling. I have shown and sold some of his early paintings of farm life. By chance he met a rather well known painter from Belfast who has agreed to mentor him and the results so far are amazing.
Zachary and Maxwell have decided to pursue careers in the Visual Arts or should I say , "The calling." Both of them have had wonderful opportunities and doors that have open . I am grateful for them and their gifts. Here are a few of Max's older pieces that I will make available in my etsy shop. Stay tuned for his new work . Done in 2015-2016
