Sortof on vacation this week...due to the computer cord and getting into the routine of summer with boys out of school, not really vacation but a break from painting.

Found this photo while cleaning today. Its my favorite of my sister and I (she's on the right) and exactly the kind of photo I like to paint from - it captures a moment in time. So much more interesting than if the two of us had been grinning at the camera...
Not sure which beach we're at but I think its
at the Cape Cod Natural History Museum. Which is one of my favorite places to go on the Cape still. If you find yourself on the Cape this summer and especially if youve got kids its a must see.

now back to the laundry and the trunk list...


the plug to my laptop broke! it'll be a few days to get my laptop up and running again. be back soon

All Summer

24"x24" encaustic, collage, oil on board nfs - this ones mine.
my beach boys. Its about to be 'all boys -all summer' in a few short days.....*sigh*

Looking forward to the change of pace however. time to refocus,reevaluate,restart and relax.

packing my pochade box up to keep in the car for some beach day plein airs and also going to experiment with some things.....

iris + poppies - flower friday and sketchbook

6x6 oil on panel. flower friday.
iris and poppies from my garden - painted this last week. they are gone now. Walking around the yard looking at everything in bloom, I feel guilty if they dont get painted so I'm bringing back 'flower friday' for the summer.......
and another summer goal is to actually fill an entire sketchbook!
usually there are several in rotation and end up a mishmosh. So I'll be trying to fill ONE from start to finish. occasionally i'll share a page or too - it'll help keep me accountable ;) AND its fun to peer into an artists sketchbook isnt it? like getting a glimpse into their studio space - love it if my artists friends out there would share their sketchbooks too

All Creatures - great and small...

no painting today - instead my niece and I went for a nature walk at the beach and hit the jackpot! first we found a robins egg - at the beach! who knew?? then...we followed fresh deer tracks! we must have just missed him!!! and THEN.....a 30 ft. humpback whale (dead)!!!
very smelly but still cool to see. I love the beach. Something new'll be a while before I can top this though ;)

Working on some commissions this week and some other studio stuff but wanted to check in and thank everyone who have been leaving comments for me!
I appreciate and enjoy all of them. With the year half over already , I'm reviewing my To-Do list and responding to comments is right up there near the top!

flips - daily painting

6x6" oil on panel traded in the clogs for cooler footwear :)

*** saturday I'll be at the Broke Arts sale in Peterborough NH part of their weekend long
"Thing In the Spring"
with a originals, some prints and a few sale items - should be a fun day/weekend.

*** also in NH this month Ive got 6 paintings at the Congress St Gallery in Portsmouth NH as part of a small group show! I love Portsmouth and cant wait to go check them out and spend some time in this great New England town.
