Upcoming Lavender Festival

Things are gearing up for the Lavender Festival July 14-15!
Here is my winning poster featured in Plank Road magazine's summer issue that just came out.  I'm so honored to have this be featured in this great magazine, and very happy that the proceeds from the sales of the poster will go to the SPCA animal shelter.
Check out the link below for current info and photos from last year's event.

Herons Everywhere

I've been doing studies of blue herons just because it's such a thrill when we catch them sitting so warily in a marsh or lake nearby.  Now I'm seeing pictures of them everywhere and on live webcams, and a friend has sent me photos he took this weekend.  My dining room table is once again covered with works in progress!

the first two are on Fabriano 300# paper

the color here is lighter than the painting for some reason, but I like this guy because it's from a photo taken in the Adirondacks last fall.

Taking a Walk

Painted for a friend from a photo from her beach vacation with her daughter.  They are very close, and I just loved this picture of them together.  They truly go hand-in- hand through life together, and the little one is growing up fast!
