New work for New York

I feel like I just got back from travelling to the east coast.  Well we arrived home
just over two weeks ago, but the Maritimes are still deep in my mind,
thick in my soul, and wrapped around me like a warm blanket of thought,
imagination, and beauty.

This is the landscape we hit when we're driving to Nova Scotia that tells
us we are almost there.  And it's the passage through the Maritimes that
breaks our hearts when we're heading back to Toronto, our home.  So
the place is as thick with memories as the paint I used to create the
fields.  Such beauty -- and of course the clouds of the Maritimes, and I
couldn't resist a day moon against the deepest blue sky.

Have a loving your memories day.

The first word that comes to mind is succulent. A nourishing image to be sure!

Thank you so much Louise. i hope I can get a better photo of it today -- I don't know your
secret but your photos of your work are so good. I hope the show sold out in Oxford.
I am just absolutely in love with your work!
