Center of Attention

There is nothing like lemons to cool off a hot summer day. Straight up or with sugar added, they are a welcome addition to the day's heat. The ultramarine blues of the sky and water and the brilliant happy yellow of sunshine.

The aubergine or eggplant if you prefer. It is actually a berry but masquerades as a vegetable. The shiny deep purple vegetable soaks up the sun and saves it's flavors to warm the heart. Eggplant parmesan, fried, baked, grilled. Add some cheese and spicy sauce and dinner is served!

After the Rain

I found this amazing puddle reflection down by Trinity Groves after the 500 year floods. This is my first attempt at the scene. I think I may try some other color variations and compositions.

Vinalhaven Fog

Vinalhaven Fog
Daily painting pastel on paper
5 x 7 inches
My intent for this summer solstice was to paint something on site but the weather didn't really cooperate so instead I took advantage of the longest day of the year to paint my favorite place in the world. Today's rainy weather reminded me a little of the Vinalhaven fog - without the sound of the ferry horn.
