Returning from Nantucket

I have been so out of the loop in posting my new paintings - but trust me - I have been painting!

I have just returned from ten days on Nantucket Island and it was magical.  The painting above was our view from the ferry as we were leaving Hyannis Port in the evening and heading to Nantucket which is 30 miles out to sea.  On the fast ferry it only takes an hour!

I had brought my painting supplies to the island and had a great little spot in the dining room of our home to paint.  It used to be a screened in porch but now it is enclosed with floor to ceiling windows on three sides that allowed for great light and air flow.  It was 98% humidity while I was there so it was impossible to paint outside.

We went to the beach on a few days to cool off in the Atlantic and the house in the above painting was our view behind where we sat on Sesachacha beach near Sankaty lighthouse.

My final painting that I started on Nantucket was of a window box on a House & Garden tour that my girlfriends and I went on in Sconset.  Everywhere we went on the island people had incredible gardens and window boxes!
