Tom's Barns - and a Wild Day on the Coast

Tom's Barns
Oil on canvas, 30x30

I've been delighted by the skies I've made lately. I like the colors and combinations I'm discovering, and by the way the sky and the land complete and reflect each other. I like the arrangement of barns in this painting, too. 

If you'd like to see this, and my other new paintings, I'll be at the Paradise City Arts Festival next weekend in Northampton, MA. This is a marvelous show, with fine art and beautiful fine craft - ceramics, furniture, clothing and fabric, glass, clocks and lots of jewelry. It takes place in the Three County Fairgrounds, just off I-91. 

In addition to the artists and artisans, there's good food available for lunch or snacks. You can find out more about the show, get directions, and find a coupon for a discount on the gate fee by clicking here. 

I'll be in Booth 409, in the Morgan Barn (the small barn). Please come by and say hello! 


 As many of you know, we live in Wachapreague, a tiny town on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The Atlantic is just down the street. A salt marsh and barrier islands mitigate the power of the ocean, but the storm this week brought major flooding to the Shore and to Wachapreague. In all these photos, water is covering roads.

Dog of the Day

Saw this husky at a show in Richmond this spring.  Want your pet to be the Dog of the Day? Send a jpg to me at

A Final Thought

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."

Carrie, I love your art, especially this very colorful piece. Great movement too.

Sorry to see you are caught up in the flooding on the coast. I hope you personally did not get flooded.

Thanks, Carol. I'm glad you like the painting! I like the color and the movement, too.

Our house was fine during the flood and wind. I tell you, though, if that hurricane had come ashore, I don't know what would have happened. Once we knew that it wasn't coming ashore, the storm was sort of fun and exciting.
