Ogunquit Waves

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

For me, paintings are often nothing more than a way to capture a simple memory, or something that was particularly beautiful to me. I just finished this painting of the waves crashing on the rocks along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine. I remember spending a bright chilly February morning feeling relaxed and refreshed, watching the waves roll in and make these big foamy splashes on rocks, roll back, then roll right back in and crash all over again. I had a lot of fun taking slow-motion videos of this amazing simple feat of nature, and I posted the videos here … photoblog post from our trip to Ogunquit in February 2016. This painting was also a chance to have some fun with the colors of shadows, which are often far from actual-gray. Here, the waves cast shadows that were a gorgeous shade of deep cobalt blue, requiring the purchase of a shiny new tube of oil paint.

Dinner Party 

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

We are so lucky to have friends who spoil us rotten! Our friends recently got an indoor smoker, they invited us over, and treated us to smoked olives, roasted smoked garlic bread, smoked wings with three sauces, homemade fork-rolled gnocchi (I helped!) with an applewood smoked tomato sauce, and peanut butter banana cookies with smoked maple syrup. Seriously!

Curious George

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

Our little cousin is obsessed with Curious George, and his parents used to hang out in Harvard Square all the time back in the day, so of course they absolutely had to take him to the Curious George store in Harvard Square, and we were delighted to be invited along for the ride!

Snowed in

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

We hit some bad weather on the drive back from Montreal, and decided to wait it out at a lovely hotel in Burlington, Vermont. We had a very pleasant day reading by the fire, then drove home on clear roads the next day.
