Thank you for coming...

Thank you to everyone who stopped in at our open house this past weekend. It was great to see and chat with all of you. A friend who dropped by sent this note... so sweet. That's one of the great things about art... when you share a color, an image or an art conversation, you make a connection that stays in your heart. Thank you also to Deb McLarnon, Lisa Cochran, Dale Atkins, Lori Martone, and Terry Braun for sharing your creativity.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving...


Pink Poppies at our Open House this Friday and Saturday

SOLD A good friend of mine and I swapped perennials about five years ago at a yard sale. When she gave them to me, I literally just opened up the earth and plopped in the dense chunk of growth. Every year I think of her (actually, I think of her more often than that) as I see these wonders of nature explode. The poppies have been the topic of conversation with several neighbors... good gardening tips have been shared...tea has been sipped in anticipation while waiting for the sun and wind to force another pod open.... All these things happen because of this gift of color that sits spectacularly in my front garden. Amazing. This painting is from a photo I took this past spring. It is 16x20 and will be on exhibit this weekend at our open house... along with my 500 TINY PAINTINGS. Please, invite a friend and join us...


Looks like gift wrap!

Four of my newest paintings now hang at Divine Cafe and Grille on Lincoln Street in Exeter. They all have a similar pattern and when grouped together look like wrapping paper.... hmmmm maybe someday? Each panel is 24x36 inches so the entire piece is 4x6 feet. They fill the wall up to the second floor mezzanine in the cafe. All it needs is a big red bow! Hope you can stop in sometime to take a look. Divine is open Wednesday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch.

My fellow open house artists (Deb, Terry, Lisa, Lori, and Dale) are getting ready for the big days November 20 and 21... We will have new art, lots of fun, and "Maurice" welcoming all at 8 Union with beverages and treats. Click on the flier for the specifics. See you soon! Have a great day and many warm cups of tea.
