I pass this marsh every time I drive to the beach in Rye. Each time I think to myself that I should – I need to paint it. There is a white egret that seems to be there every time I pass and he’s beautiful. It seems that most of my inspiration lately comes from that stretch of Ocean Boulevard…

To be able to take a class with the iconic Matthew Mead directly on the heels of his gorgeous cover for BHG magazine this month is nothing short of surreal. Talk about interacting in real-time!

I call this art piece “It Takes a Village” because it was a collaboration with people that love Liam. Each birthday I try to create something meaningful that he will take into his future. He is a passionate surfer and I thought surfboard art would be the way to go. I could see it decorating his room now and then his own apartment in the future…

The pressure is on to push myself on these last ten pieces but for the moment, can I just say that I love this one? I think I am just crushing on the direction my florals have taken these past few weeks. It has a little something to do with the “painting every day” exercise – things just flow better and become more refined the more you work and flex your creative muscles. I’ve had days where I have had a million ideas and …

When I set out to paint 50 paintings, I really didn’t have a plan of what I was going to paint. I just wanted to create new art and explore new techniques. I wanted to push myself beyond my small and safe canvases and see what I liked and what I didn’t like…

The greens of a future springtime are just waiting for their moment again but for now I’m digging the solemnity of a bit of a winter palette…

This little piece of pottery came from one of my flea marketing excursions with my sister. It is such a little gem all earthy and old. Right now it is sitting on our mantle at the beach. Here it sits in my studio but in the form of a painting…

Here you can find it hanging with my florals that have been framed up in my growing collection of vintage frames. It is nice to have these gorgeous old frames hanging on a wall instead of gathering dust on my studio floor. It is nicer to have some colorful artwork of my own to join them on the wall…

I call this one “purple rein (deer)” just so I can date myself and remember back to my high school days when Prince was everything. Actually he is back in a big way with a new album out – read The New Yorker’s write up on it here. But I digress …
