I love porches, that feeling of being exposed yet sheltered at the same time. This one happens to be attached to Monhegan House. Think of all the artists who have occupied this very chair. Maybe one of them was you!

Change Happens

I love the way the early morning light illuminates this house and the upper branches of the birch tree behind it. Good thing I painted it when I did, because things have changed. The house is now in the process of being blue. I guess red, white, and blue could work, but I liked it the way it was.

Made in America

They don't make them like they used to, so there's no shortage of old barns in New England. The shadows across this barn seem to offer encouragement to stand up to another winter, and the flag in the window just makes it.
