Visitors Center

Just returned from delivering some Beachscape artwork to the Visitors Center at Heritage State Park in Fall River, Ma.
The local art association invited a small group of members and resident artists to display at the building throughout the month of Oct.

It's a really lovely spot...great walls, great light, and right on the water!
There will be a festival there on the grounds this weekend starting tomorrow. If you're in the should certainly stop by!

I'm Back

Feels as if it has been a while since I've posted. I have been sooo busy with making my canvas paper pieces. I have numerous requests for them and have been working almost non-stop. Not complaining mind you....I'll take this anytime!

I did manage to just spend a weekend away at my in-laws river house for the annual "girls weekend". It's a get-together with friends each year for a little fun and a great recharge!
Since I've got so much work to do as well...I decided to bring some of my smaller canvas pieces along with me that I'd already started as well as several bins of papers in my most used colors.

I did manage to make a bit of progress while still enjoying the view....and a great bit of inspiration that view is too!!!

Not a bad little spot to work at all :)

Full Display

A few days ago I made a trip to the Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis with my new pieces that I'd been creating on canvas. They have had a collection of them as I'd been doing them previously, framed under glass. The owner was quite excited to see the new works.'s always a pleasure to take a drive through the Cape on a lovely day....but an even greater pleasure to see the reaction my new work received.

The only problem it created was in deciding what she wanted to keep and what to send home with me. In the end....only one left the gallery!

This is a pic she took later that day after arranging the two styles together. There are actually a couple more pieces in another spot as I must say.....I've got a pretty awesome Torn Paper Painting display there right now!! Thanks Jen!

A Warmer Place

Here in New England, as the weather begins to get cooler, my thoughts seem to be going to a warmer place.'s still at the beach....but a warmer one right now.
Instead of the usual dunes.....this one has gone in the direction of palm trees!! palm trees :)

Vineyard light

Using a photo I'd taken in Martha's Vineyard, I just finished my latest Torn Paper Painting.
I've included a close up of the lighthouse to see some of the text that has been incorporated. There are some other little surprises throughout....but I'll leave those for the folks who see it personally! :)

And the Winners are........

Mark & Sarah!!!!
Every other weekend at our beach club there is a Beetlecat race. The final race of the season is always the Sunday of Labor Day weekend....the race that there is actually an award for.
My husband and daughter had a really good season this year with their boat coming in first a few times. For those races a ribbon is given.
The labor day race has the honor of getting a plaque, or rather, custody of a plaque for the be given to the winners of the next years race.
They've had this honor a few times in the their names are already on there in several of the spots!
It's been a while now since we've had custody...but it came home today!!
They raced an awesome race and led by a huge length!
Congrats you two.....I've never seen a better team!!

A New Addition

Has been added to the collection of fabrics using my Torn Paper Paintings!!
I've just reviewed and made available my cupcake titeled "
Unwrapped". The colors are amazing in this one.
I've now sampled them in two different fabrics. While the "quilting weight" is quite nice and very general purpose....the "linen-cotten canvas"....amazing!!
