I had a day off between classes at Creative Arts Camp, which I spent in a wonderful way. I painted these two plein air pastel paintings after swimming a half mile (round trip) to Cherry Island, where I enjoyed a magnificent interaction with the bald eagles there. Then, after I painted these, I headed out for a lobster roll with friends. Talk about a perfect day in a gorgeous place!

The tree above is an incredible specimen just past the director’s cabin on the point that is thicker higher up than it is at the base. The painting below was painted from Newfound’s gazebo.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
