Godspeed Aiden.

Tis a Fearful Thing

It is a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.
A fearful thing
to love, hope, dream:
to be--
to be,
And! to lose.
A thing for fools, this,
a holy thing,
a holy thing
to love.
For your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.
To remember this brings painful joy.
'Tis a human thing, love,
a holy thing,
to love
what death has touched.

Winter Pastures

Every once in a while, when the fields are covered in snow, the afternoon light becomes rosey. Everything turns pink. The world becomes a quite thing.
I love those moments.

Finally! It looks like I will be having some good light.

I only paint with natural light. For the past 10-14 days I have had a very small window of natural light or no sunshine to speak of on a few. It's been humid, rainy and cold. This has also impeded the drying process of my paintings. I know, I know......"Everyone complains about the weather and no one does anything about it!"

Well, I would if I could!

At best, I am a bad picture taker. This fact  however does not stop me from taking pictures of my painting to post here on my blog. The image above was photographed yesterday by Tom Alexander. He shot a file of this painting actual size, 30"x 50", so if at some future date we want to make a print that large it will have all the detail of the original. He is a genius to whom I will be eternally grateful for.

New Painting

This is one of the panels of a diptych that will be going to Churchill Gallery in Newburyport, Mass. later this month. It is oil on canvas and the complete work is 30" x 50" when hung. I am currently still pondering the title of this piece.

Dressage at Devon

For me the real end of summer starts with the Hampton Classic and the beginning of fall is the closing day of Dressage at Devon.

Tomorrow is the first day of Dressage at Devon. I already miss being there. The fabulous display of horses. The conversations with horse people about horse related things. The unpredictable weather and of course the most amazing french fries on the planet.

If you are lucky enough to be at DAD this week be sure and take the time to wander through the vendors. There will be  delightful finds from beautiful barns signs from Briarwood to lovely hats and gloves. Visit my friend Penny at Hoof Prints Studio, she creates sophisticated jewelry and equine painting and prints. She is also a master framer and will have some of my art.

Above all though, don't miss the french fries!

Smooth Sailing

A few years ago one of my dear friends commissioned me to create paintings of their sailboat for her husbands Christmas present. They had lived on this boat after they were married, so not only is it a beautiful boat, it is a symbol of their love. I was honored to be asked to do this.

I incorporated nautical charts, blueprints of the boat, marine life, and lines of poetry and their names and the name of their beloved daughter into the paintings. It was exciting to work on such a labor of love.

 I was delighted to receive an email from her recently of one of the paintings hanging in their home in Annapolis, Maryland. Equally delighted that they are sill enjoying them.
