The original has a bit more color than what shows here, and is pastel on gray-green La Carte paper. Will is my nephew. I worked from a photo that I took during Easter brunch at my in-law's. Due to lack of space, Will was stuck at the kids' table.

Charles River

Yesterday my husband and I took his father's pontoon boat out onto the river. He fished- I painted. We didn't have an anchor so every few minutes we would start drifting away. Luckily I have a very patient husband who automatically adjusted the position of the boat.

Mill building

This old building is in Fitchburg on rt. 2a. and I painted it on friday with a friend. There is a trail that winds all the way around the building and it's very eeerie on the other side by the woods. I don't think I'll be painting back there. I'd like to get a view of the entire chimney the next time I visit the site. A mill series is something I would be interested in working on this summer.

Gove Farm

This is the orchard across the street from the farm stand which is located in Leominster. The peach trees are in bloom and I meant to paint the ones that were in the foreground in this scene, but after I painted the background with the barn, I found that I didn't want to clutter it up.
I'll just have to go back and do another painting!
