Last night I had the BEST time hanging out with my sister, Cheryl, in her studio. She wood burned while I painted! Check out her Tumblr site @ohmyampersand to see what she’s been up to. She calls these beautiful little wooden pieces her “art therapy”. We poured fresh glasses of wine and settled in to our creative zones. I flipped through an old StandUp Journal and came across  a photo by Glenn Dubock I felt drawn to use as a reference to paint from. Cheryl turned on her…

I’ve been looking forward to setting up my portable studio from Judson’s Art Outfitters and painting again. I found the perfect corner in my sister’s new studio, surrounded by windows. Over a few days I worked on a small commission oil painting of a special cottage for a collector back home in Nova Scotia.

May 16: Our last evening in Nova Scotia I had always imagined spending our last night on the beach near home, on the Eastern Shore. The air here smells delicious. The sea breeze is so clean and fresh; every deep inhale reminds me of how lucky we are to call Nova Scotia home. The day is packed full of last-minute errands, crossing off things on my list in anticipation of parking in Seaforth Cove and relaxing around the campfire. We get there just before the sun sets.
