Saturday was the first day of spring and since it was so warm in Maine (which is very unusual) I was inspired to do some spring cleaning and began with the porch. I ended up rearranging things trying to simplify as best I could. Ellie May was used to having the couch where the chair now is and looked very puzzled when she first saw the new look! Didn't take her long to adjust.
I think our taste of spring may disappear soon as temperatures are predicted to drop this week with a slight chance of snow.
While rummaging around the basement while visiting my Dad I came across these 2 old paintings.
The first one I painted when I was 14. I always have loved Maine!
When my brother (the pianist) was 13 he performed the Brahms Trio with Joel (the clarinetist) and Pat (the cellist). At the time I tried to capture this special performance with my paints! I was so happy to be reunited with these paintings and so thankful they had been saved all these years.
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 pets, 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 every day.
