Friendship in the Fog


Friendship in the Fog
Oil on Wood
12"X12"

Available for Sale Online HERE.

Yesterday afternoon the fog suddenly moved in without warning. Everything changed around us; the temperature, the color, the landscape, the sound, the activity, and everyone's mood.  It's as if we were transported to a different place without having to move an inch.

Bella at the Wheel


Bella at the Wheel
Oil on Wood
12"X12"

Our neighbor, Hal is long gone, but his old Plymouth lives on as do memories of our shared time on the island.
The paint color went with his wardrobe which was bright and joyful and full of pizazz, a perfect match for his personality. It was always a welcome sight to see him meandering across our lawn.

Hal's family has lovingly cared for the car and today their dog, Bella, was at the wheel, a welcome moment of memory and levity in the neighborhood.

Gabriel Sails By


Gabriel Sails By
Oil on Wood
6"X6"
SOLD
It was too nice a day this morning to do anything other than sit on the deck and watch the world go by. So we did, and were there when Gabriel sailed by in our old Rhodes 19, finding just enough breeze here and there to sail back and forth in and out of view for a good long time. A lovely sight, unfolding in slow motion, on a sunny Saturday in July.

Morning at Heliker-LaHotan


Morning at Heliker - LaHotan
Oil on Wood
12"X12"
SOLD
Artists Victoria Rees and Peter Lloyd-Jones are resident artists this month at The Heliker - LaHotan Foundation on the island. They both gave inspired presentations on Sunday, which included an invitation from Tory to all of us on the island to sit for a 45 minute portrait in the LaHotan studio where she is working. I signed right up right away and and rode my bike over Wednesday morning. She painted while I sketched her painting me. We talked, and I soaked in the history and beauty of Bob LaHotan's studio overlooking the Pool and everything about the experience has filled me with awe and inspiration and deep down gratitude ever since.
