The challenge is online- Leslie Saeta has sponsored 4 of them so far - I really enjoy the challenge.
There are a ton of us doing it- you can see the other participants here.
I have had the pleasure of spending time on Trouants Island in Marshfield this week- over the course of three sparkling mornings- sitting by the sea and painting this sweet cottage. It's going to be replaced soon with an equally beautiful home, so I immortalized it for my friend Beth. What a spot. I plan to return and paint the other many motifs I saw there!
In this panoramic shot you can see fourth cliff, Humarock, in the distance. To the left out of view is the mouth of the North and South River.

know- summer is still here- but I have that Sunday night feeling-and not quite sure what to do with myself…
This summer has been amazing weather- not too hot- sunny days. My flower garden has never been better!
Things are winding down pretty fast, the days are cooler and the nights are getting longer. My daughter Markie was here for a week and returns to New York today :(
However - we are coming into a new season soon- and we can be reborn again, into the fall, filled with richness and new beginnings. Some people around here get sad this time of year and dread the winter, and it can be contagious. I love winter though- its a quiet soulful time and being inside painting is my favorite thing to do. It all keeps moving- round and round….
Happy last days of August everyone.

I started this in July and just finished it the other day. It's made by cutting up stained glass and gluing it on to the front of the framed glass with Weldbond glue. I then use a black grout. Its a lot easier than leaded glass- although I do want to try that too someday!

This is a beautiful breed of dog from Korea. I thought it fitting to put Jindo in the moonlight.

I'm spending a few blissful days up in Lake George with my neighbors and friends. It's a wonderful place and I'm inspired!
