examining what makes an Aspen leaf flutter in the wind ~ Oh they are like little kites on tethers ~
With a delightful sense of wonder in the smallest things,
white crowned sparrow
often infused with her sense of humor … if he was a king, was she the queen?
blue capped vireo
She mused that who she was sketching might be interested in her too.
Her hard-won yet easy watercolor style and skill
gave her the courage to splatter red paint for the bittersweet vine
all over this magnificent bird
Countless sketches, watercolors and paintings
express her love and kinship with the New England seaside.
She has left us with her unique and creative way of seeing the world.
~ Fare Well ~
