“There’s a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique, I think.  It’s absolutely a world onto itself.”

Jamie Wyeth

It’s been weeks since I’ve had a chance to sit and catch up. Spring is in full force, although today it feels a bit like autumn with a brisk chill in the air. We had a week of rain that left everything lush and green and the tree blossoms are just glorious now.

We actually got to experience spring a bit early when we took a road trip down to North Carolina to see my son. We stopped along the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia and did a bit of hiking.  The views were incredible.

Gearing up for a busy couple of months ahead, which will include a trip to the Maine coast, a family reunion and an exciting photo project.

Once again, I will be teaming up with Carol MacGregor (Happy Gatherings Photography) for a shoot at the beautiful Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton, Massachusetts. This project will be based on the art of John Singer Sargent. The Bradley Estate is one of many sites run by The Trustees of Reservations and this year will mark their 125th anniversary. We met with the director last week and got the Board’s full approval and we’re now doing tons of research and collecting of props. Very happy to be part of this celebration.

So that’s life in a nutshell..back to my usual short and less chatty posts. Have a lovely week ahead.

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
~ John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”

“The Pacific is my home ocean; I knew it first, grew up on its shore, collected marine animals along the coast. I know its moods, its color, its nature. It was very far inland that I caught the first smell of the Pacific. When one has been long at sea, the smell of land reaches far out to greet one. And the same is true when one has been long inland.”
~ John Steinbeck
