Birches in the Garden

This 7 x 10 painting was done at an arboretum that I visited with my sister. It was our art day together. Birches are one of my favorite trees. They remind me of summer vacations in Maine when we were kids. I love their contrast against the rest of the landscape.

The Hay Barn

7 x 10 done in plein air at a Farm Museum here on Long Island. I'm not anywhere near barns usually, but there was a billboard of a cow on the side of the road that said, "Follow me to the farm." I couldn't pass that invitation up. I'm glad I stopped.

Lake View

This 10 x 14 watercolor was done for the Weekend Drawing Event on WetCanvas. It looks like a perfect place to spend a day.

Bright Begonias

I don't usually paint flowers, but these were out on my patio sitting on my railing all summer. I had 3 flowerboxes of these giant begonias. Two of them fell off the railinglast week because they had grown so tall and topheavy. Some of the flowers broke off, and I ended up putting them down on the ground next to my railing. I love the color of these and decided to paint them before they're gone. This is 10 x 10.

Surf's Up

I couldn't let the summer go by without trying to capture a boogie boarder in the water while I was there. This is 4 x 6. It wasn't easy to capture him.

Beach Fun

Here is another 4 x 6 painted at the beach. With the summer ending my supply of models will be ending soon too. It's been fun capturing kids enjoying the beach.

Holding On

This 4 x 6 painting was done at the beach. I love watching parents with their little kids and capturing those everyday poses.

Ogunquit Rocks

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 watercolor done on my trip to Maine. I was sitting on the beach, keeping cool. The lighthouse-like structure isn't a real lighthouse. It was built to cover something from the water department and they wanted it to fit in with the landscape.
