first light


I woke up to a wall of fog this morning.

a fresh start

In Maine, spring's rebirth lies deep down under the ground.  March came in like a lion, and despite a brightening sun,  continues to roar through the days with cold winds and even the occasional snow squall.  There is still a solid pack of ice and snow covering most of my backyard.  I trust things are growing beneath the frozen surface.  While I wait (not so) patiently for the first early blooms, I've put out some colors of spring on my new glass palette.

sitting pretty



Earlier in the year I was invited to paint a chair for the Teen Center's 'Sitting in Style Chair Auction'.  The Teen Center is a great local resource for kids to go after school and its free to the community-very handy for working parents. Old chairs were donated to the Center and local artists and crafters spruced them up.  I found this banged up  captain's chair and reinvented it into a hot pink garden scene.  It doesn't resemble anything that grows up in these parts, especially in March.

words to live by

"Sometimes life isn't about making a difference.  Sometimes it's about making your mark.  And sometimes those marks make a difference or bring joy to another person's world."
