FALLEN FENCE #2


There is just something about those dune fences that I love. Perhaps it is the way they hold the beach together with their gentle strength. Even when felled by a powerful storm, they still manage to do their job.

MONARCH BUTTERFLY


Here is another photo that I took at World's End. There were at least 35 Monarch Butterflies all around the sunlit asters on this particular day. It was as if they were posing for the camera.

WORLD'S END



I went to World's End in Hinham last week for the first time. What a beautifully peaceful place just for walking and enjoying the woods and the coastline! The view of the Boston skyline is very nice and must be spectacular on a clearer day. I have to go back there.

PUMPKIN PATCH


This is a painting I did a few years ago of a pumpkin patch. At this time of year, I thought it appropriate to share it on my blog.

THE DARK, DARK WOODS


Our family has a large piece of property with a very small house in upstate New York, the village of Wayland. It's a wonderful place for the family to gather on any occasion. These woods are my favorite, especially towards the end of the day when the sun breaks through all the trees and casts dappled light all over the place. I did this pastel painting of those woods from a photo taken at our niece's wedding this summer.

SOUTH RIVER AT CANOE CLUB LANE


I was asked to participate in an artist-on-location event during a house tour in Pembroke and Hanover. My friend, Mary, and I chose to paint on the dock at the canoe club on Canoe Club Lane in Pembroke. This view of the South River was breathtaking once the sun came out. I began my painting while it was still a little gray, and it was too late to change the colors. But here it is anyway -- a pastel painting of the South River early morning.
