Summer of '72



acrylic on gessobord, 6" x 6"


It's the summer of 1972 and this is your ride. A gallon of gas costs thirty-six cents. "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by Looking Glass is playing on the radio and all is groovy in your world.

Butterfly Royalty


acrylic on gessobord, 6" x 6"

 

I visited a butterfly garden while vacationing in Cape Cod, Massachusetts last week. The enclosure was loaded with monarch and painted lady butterflies. A wonderful guide told us all about the differences between the two butterfly species and it was so much fun watching the butterflies fly all around us.

Enjoying the View

Summer is always a wonderful time for me and my family. I have young children and we are usually out and about enjoying the beautiful weather on Long Island. During the summer, my kids like to sleep late in the morning, so I find time to paint before they awake.

Encounter

Deer are so beautiful to watch. I'm city folk, so seeing these magnificent creatures up close is always a treat.
