Poppies Alla Prima

I’ve been enjoying my neighborhood dog walks and all of the poppies that are in bloom right now. So gorgeous! Watching poppies dance in the breeze is so mesmerizing. I just can’t get enough of them.

Morning Light

We’re back in Maine and it has taken me almost a week to find some sort of rhythm after a long, long drive home from South Carolina. I’m getting there though. 🙂 I even managed to wake up early enough to see some morning magic a few times this week–that can be difficult at this […]

Sand Dunes Moon

This is the last of the larger canvases I had to paint on while down in South Carolina and I couldn’t resist capturing that magical full moon I caught from the beach. Everything about that evening was dreamy … warm, breezy, clear and gorgeous! I rode my bike down to the beach with my beach […]

Painted Bunting

How could I not paint a painted bunting after seeing them for the first time?! They really look like flying painter’s palettes–they’re soooo gorgeous! We’ve got a little feeder up on the window and have really enjoyed watching a pair of cardinals come and go all spring, but then a couple of weeks ago, the […]

Egret Sunrise

I never r-egret getting up for a sunrise … especially this particular one. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to witness the magic of this egret silhouetted in flight at sunrise on the beach. Just stunning. There are so many interesting things to observe on the beach at […]

Beaufort Harbor

We have a favorite lunch spot in Beaufort–the Herban Market & Cafe–and we love sitting on their patio and looking out through the Spanish Moss at the sailboats in the harbor. For us Maine girls, it’s just so cool to see sailboats, palm trees, marsh and that gorgeous hanging moss all in the same view. […]

Morning Marsh View

The other morning I sat out on the deck with my coffee and soaked up the marsh view.  The birds were singing, the tide was inching its way up and the colors were calling to me.  I ran inside and got my paints and went to work.  Half way through this painting the winds picked […]

Strawberry Season

I love strawberries, don’t you? And it’s such a treat to get to enjoy strawberry season here in the Lowcountry and then again at home in early July. TWO strawberry seasons! 🙂 Nothing tastes quite as sweet and delicious as a strawberry right off the vine. They truly are nature’s candy. Yummm. Cheers to summer […]

Radishes

I love visiting the port Royal Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings. Seeing all of the vendors in the park under these huge oak trees covered in Spanish moss is other worldy, and having access to a summer bounty of produce in April is beyond exciting. I came home with zucchini, summer squash, red potatoes, cauliflower, […]
