Yes, I know I have been MIA, but I have been off the grid in Northern Maine for the last few weeks. Not even cell service without a bit of a hike! While I did manage to make it into town for supplies every few days and check in on my email, I wasn't able to post here. Some day I will get a smart phone and make those tasks a little easier when I am away from home.
At any rate, I am now back in Massachusetts with a crazy busy schedule for the next month or so. Look for details on upcoming shows and exhibitions - I hope to post more information soon.
In the meanwhile, the photo above (taken while in Maine) is the beginning of one of the changes I plan to make in this blog over the upcoming weeks. I do plan a redesign, and I hope to make a few content changes as well. One thing I want to add is "Inspiration Mondays" - posting something, most usually one of my photos, that provides inspiration for the work that I do. A kind of little peek into the process of creating art - and maybe revealing a little more about myself as well.
The photo above shows just a bit of the landscape in Northern Maine that inspires a lot of the landscapes that I paint. The beauty of that part of the country always takes my breath away - the trees, the mountains, the skies, the water - and I always feel a need to get back to painting landscapes after spending time there.
