Hello and Welcome Friends,

  November 2003
volume 1 number 6

Time passes all too quickly and much has happened since I last wrote you.

I will synopsize by telling you that our summer in Liverpool, Nova Scotia was wonderful. The renovation of our 200 year old home went very well. But we found out the truth of many cliches surrounding such projects. It took twice as long as we planned and cost three times as much! Nonetheless, we accomplished a great deal in four months. Just to give you an idea, here is a before and after image of one room of our gallery in Nova Scotia:



I can't adequately convey how warmly we were welcomed by folks along the South Shore. Our new friends made the transition an absolute pleasure! And they make our return next summer something we eagerly anticipate.

Having finally settled back into our home in Vermont, we are solidly into the swing of things here. The autumn was spectacular - again! Each year, I seem to forget just how fantastic it really is. Here is a picture from The Artist's Loft looking across the Connecticut River as the sun sets.

Need I say more about autumn in Vermont?

I have been painting like crazy lately. Yesterday, I took some new works to the Beckwith Gallery in Jamaica, Vermont. If you find yourself near Stratton or Mount Snow over the next few months, you'll have to drop by and see her beautiful selection of paintings and prints. In the meantime, let me share some of the new works I left at the gallery.

"Cool Morning on the Lake, Oil on Canvas 38" x 28"

"Green Mountain Morning, Oil on Panel 23" x 16"

"Autumn Dusk", Oil on Panel 23" x 16"

"Lake Champlain Sunset", Oil on Masonite 12" x 18"

There are more... but you'll just have to go there to see them!

I am now in the process of preparing for Brattleboro's next Gallery Walk on the first Friday in December (the 5th). It is always a good time and I love sharing my new paintings with all the folks who come by. The next project coming up on my list of things to do is a show in the Governor's office at the statehouse in Montpelier. I have been invited to hang my paintings in Jim Douglas' office in February and March of this coming year. I'm very excited to accomodate and consider it an honor to have been invited! Here is a small preview of some of the new works that will probably make their way up to Montpelier next year.

"Stickneybrook V", Oil on Panel 18" x 12"

"Pikes Falls", Oil on Canvas 38" x 47"

"Stickneybrook VI", Oil on Panel 18" x 12"

So that's it for now. I hope that this finds you all in good spirits as we prepare for the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving and come see us at The Artist's Loft in Vermont!
