Thank you for coming!

Our Open Studios this May 4+5 was just lovely. Thank you to all who visited, chatted, and purchased. So much good feedback from everyone. I loved seeing you and meeting new friends. Here are a few of my paintings that found happy homes :-). Thank you to Kathy C., Doug F, Amy K, Mary C. and Laurie D.
The bottom photo shows a group of three poppies, one of which was also sold. Enjoy the color!

If you are looking for more inspiration, join me this Saturday. I am doing demo paintings all day at the studio. We will have tea and cookies... plus two very short tours at 10 and 2 will be given to those who have never been.
Happy Mothers Day everyone!


A little color fun outside

I always look forward to spring because I can't WAIT to get back outside for projects. There is just something about painting large stuff on large surfaces. Even though this is tiny (and somewhat formal) Exeter I love splashing around with color exteriors. Almost all of this color was applied with a sponge roller (except for lettering). We have had people to stop and take pics, people to shout from their cars while I was painting, and people to touch base with me that I have not talked to in a long time!
.... LOVE spreading color joy to the neighborhood and the passers-by. Hope it makes someone's day brighter.



We have 9 (yes, 9) artist studios... and 2 guest artists for the show. Our space continues to improve... 2500 square feet of fun stuff to make you happy. 

You WILL find LARGE and small here for the open studios. You will find prints and cards. And you will see some sweet little things that will make you go "awww....".
Join us May 4 and 5.... first weekend in May.
