Red Gardening Gloves

8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord

Things have been so hectic here that I needed to paint a quiet piece.  It doesn't get much quieter than Monhegan Island off season.  September/October is a very busy time for outdoor art shows and gallery exhibits here in Virginia.  I suppose all over, not just Virginia.  As much as I like to do them, I find them exhausting.  I also find I don't have as much time to paint and if I do, I feel a little rushed.  Monhegan is my Moment of Zen.  When I paint it, I'm there..(Strange as that seems).  I can smell it, feel it...AHHH...


  1. Just looking at your Monhegan piece allows me to take a breath and relax from the hectic pace.I agree with you on all counts of Monhegan, feeling rushed etc

  2. Thank you for your comment, Page :-)
