These two very different images– one 9×12 and the other 17×22 were based on photos I took of a nearby cove in my hometown of Stonington, Connecticut, from vantage points mere yards away from each other. One was taken in thick fog and the other on a clear day just after sunset. I’m lucky to live in such a beautiful place with vistas that evolve daily and even hourly providing an endless supply of inspiration.



I have the tools, but not the patience (or, dare I say it?) time left to cultivate true bonsai. Maybe none of us has.  However I must concede that Jade Plant gives us the option of faking it because of the gnarled and easily manipulated trunks on even the youngest plants. Still, painting a bonsai takes less time and discipline. What’s more, any damage resulting from my less-than-green thumb is already done.


I’ll be showing my botanical Art at The Art of Craft Fair in Cambridge, MA in connection with a larger open studios event on May 11 — the day before Mother’s Day.

Here are some examples of my work on A Pinterest Board

I hope some of you can join me there! Here’s part of the event’s Facebook announcement:

The Art of Craft 2013

Posted on March 18, 2013 | Leave a comment

Join us on Saturday, May 11th and Sunday, May 12th, Mother’s Day weekend, for a family- friendly day at The Art of Craft. This indoor/outdoor open market of contemporary and traditional arts, crafts, and artisanal foods celebrates our local artists. This year we are also part of Cambridge Open Studios and will have a trolley stop at The Art of Craft.

We have over 60 incredible artists and designers joining us for The Art of Craft from Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. For those of you on pinterest you can see some of our vendors here: Although this is a family-friendly event, the open market will be enjoyed by all those who appreciate art and design. It is the perfect opportunity to shop with your mom for mother’s day,

Children are invited to participate in many activities from dancing or listening to live music by local musicians, having their face painted or grabbing a snack at one of the Fayerweather faux “Food Truck” booths. In celebration of the ever-growing food truck scene in the area, the children and parents have been inspired to run a faux food truck of their own. Whether you want to grab a bite to eat on the run and some finger foods for the little ones or sit down and enjoy lunch with a good friend you’ll find the perfect food and spot to enjoy it at The Art of Craft. In addition this year, we will be inviting some of Boston’s best real food trucks to join us for “high tea” time and dinner!

Fayerweather Street School is located in the Fresh Pond area of Cambridge at 765 Concord Ave. There is plenty of free parking. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5 for a raffle ticket to use in our artisan showcase raffle. The Art of Craft is on Saturday, May 11th and Sunday, May 12th from 10:00 to 6:00.
