I had a great weekend staying in New Hampshire with my 'little boys' while their parents had a getaway weekend planned by my brother Tom. Big points there ;) 
We set up the paint 'studio' in the kitchen and we all painted together in between spontaneous trips outdoors to swing and draw pirate ships on the driveway and down the entire sidewalk. Believe me, there were many instances of boats burning and pirates jumping overboard, etc. We ate lots of pasta and Saturday was pajama day so we could go outside in our pj's which Colin loved.
Here they are painting in the kitchen. SO SWEET. I adore them.  This little painting is from last week's Cape trip. I set up by the Provincetown Inn and painted the late afternoon light on the marshes.

Garden Tour for Clift Rodgers Library

I had a great day yesterday painting at a garden tour organized to benefit the Clift Rodgers Free Library, a little gem of a library/consignment shop in Marshfield Hills. I set up right under the umbrella at the refreshment table and painted the beautiful sunflowers the hostess had set there to accompany all the sugary treats.The weather couldn't have been better and the day flew by as horticulture fans roamed the grounds enjoying the flowers. Thanks to all of the generous homeowners and the organizers of the tour for the beautiful day!!

Cape Trip and Sketches

 This is Penniman House, an old sea Captain's house located in Eastham on the Cape. I stopped there on my way to Provincetown Thursday to do a few sketches on a beautiful sunny day. Such charming architecture. I'd love to live there. 
Today I'm off to paint at a Garden tour in Marshfield to support the Clift Rodgers Free Library, a little gem in Marshfield Hills. Stop by if you are in the neighborhood.

Sedona Studies

Ok, I'm a bit 'off' on my blog right now. Lots going on. Watching the Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup which is a BIG DEAL here.  I'm going to Provincetown tomorrow and hope to have a nice painting for you all. I SO appreciate your comments and encouragement and continued support. Here are all the Sedona studies together. No more suspense ;}

Cathedral Rock Study

What? I haven't posted this study yet? Where the heck have I been? Never mind. 
This study of Cathedral Rock was also done at sunset from our balcony at the Hyatt. 
I promise to replace this glare-y photo with a better one tomorrow.

Sedona Studies

Sedona was such an adventure. We ate out and painted and laughed so much! Especially when Kelley's brand new easel box and tripod almost blew over a ledge into Oak Creek in a gale force wind gust. Not funny but funny if you know what I mean, and it did have a happy ending.  On Wednesday we drove up to Jerome to check out the incredible old car/truck graveyard at the Gold King Mine. Carol soldiered on despite the overcast light and painted trucks while Kelley and I poked around the galleries and the shops in Jerome. There was so much to see and too much to paint but I did some studies of the fantastic rocks 
from the balcony of our fabulous condo at the Hyatt Pinion Point. We had a 180* view of the rocks. Wow! I'm posting them one at a time along with some photos from the trip.

Disconnected in Sedona

Painting at Schnebly Hill
We have very spotty internet so I haven't been able to post or answer email. Suffice it to say that I am completely overwhelmed with the beauty of Sedona. Yesterday we went out to paint at Schnebly Hill and I did this study of cactus which will serve me well when I get back to my studio. Today we went out to Slide Rock State park. The paintings....well not so much. The fun and the surroundings? AWESOME!
