"Autumn Stroll," 16x20" oil on canvas.The autumn foliage was exceptional this year and made me think of where my mother grew up in Norwich, Vermont. I hoped to capture the glowing, vibrant colors of the Connecticut River Valley in this piece.<br/> <br/> Prints are made from very high quality scans. PRINTS ORDERED LARGER THAN THE ORIGINAL PAINTING WILL ALSO SHOW ENLARGED FINE DETAIL, INCLUDING PAPER FIBERS, CANVAS WEAVE & BRUSH STROKES.<br/> <br/> 16"x20". Oil on gallery wrapped canvas.

I’ve been packing in all the sand, sun, and salt water that I can on a traditional end-of-August family vacation on Cape Cod before September arrived. It’s always a blast, but by the end of it I start to feel the pull of home, getting back to work in my studio, and cooler days ahead.
September will also mark the start of a fairly busy art fair and festival season for me, with something going on each month until December. It all starts in two weeks with the Codman Estate Fine Arts & Crafts Festival in Lincoln, Mass. on September 10th from 10am to 4pm.
The property is a gorgeous historic estate located at 34 Codman Road in Lincoln. Come wander the grounds, peruse the art, listen to music, picnic on the lawn - perfect Saturday accomplished. In addition to hosting visitors in my studio tent (Booth #63) I’ll be giving a demonstration of my “stained glass” watercolor technique from 2:30 to 3:15 over by the Carriage House. Come see how the magic happens.
Later in the fall is Roslindale Open Studios, happening October 22nd and 23rd (earlier this year than in past years) in Boston's "Rozzie" neighborhood. I’ll be at the Boston School of Modern Languages again. That’s at 814 South Street in Roslindale, right beside the Roslindale Village Commuter Rail stop. Visit me between 11am and 5pm both days. I’m anticipating a bunch of new works being framed up and ready for both the Codman Festival and Roslindale.
Come shop, play, eat, drink, be merry, support your local artists, be awesome, and say "Hi" when you see me!
