Depictions of grasses have been a focus for several years. However, depicting them in watercolor has been a new challenge for me. This scene is of the pond at Field Farm–a wonderful mid-century modern guest house run by the Trustees of Reservation and situated on a high meadow in Williamstown. In the background, albeit not visible in the painting, is Mount Greylock.
This mossy bank at Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, Massachusetts is always a source of visual and tactile delight.
One of my favorite flowers, bee balm has not only a whimsical structure and pungent fragrance, but in Earl Grey tea, a wonderful flavor.
One of the joys of having a studio space is the ability to collect and arrange favorite objects. This sea shell is a very old friend and the vase a mid-century yard sale find.
