Recognize anyone?

Art on Union. Fingers crossed for great weather this year. Word has it that Lois (jewelry) is searching for more ideas this weekend at a glass show. Lori (pottery) has just finished some new pieces which include medium and small vases. Deb (photography) has more of her charming little chickies. Gaby (paintings) is putting the finishing touches on a new series of her color. Willow Pond Community Farm is already planting things in the ground... so we know what that means... they will definitely have vegetable garden plants to purchase here. Ashley (studio assistant) is gift wrapping give-aways (10 to be exact) that will be given away over the course of the two days at Art On Union. And I am waiting for the art studio cleaning fairy. Yikes!

This blue just sends me

Had to post....
This is Deb McLarnon's shot. She is the featured photographer at Art On Union Street this Mother's Day Weekend. I LOVE this color. Makes my head zing spring (not sing, but ZING, I tell you).


Charlotte's Garden

Working on a new set of paintings inspired by people I love. They are all abstract explorations in color. This is one of two titled "Charlotte's Garden". Charlotte is my husband's aunt in Portland, Maine. She is 94. She is an adventurer, a reader, a community doer. And she has always loved her flowers. We went with her and my husband's mom to NYC last fall, which is where Charlotte is originally from.... a very nostalgic trip. And this year, she wants to go back. She says "I love New York in the spring." So there we will go! To see more flowers.
