Swing time

Mood Swing

Next up in my Girl Power series is this carefree girl enjoying a quiet moment by herself on a swing. There's nothing like a swing to make you feel like a child again. I remember me and my friends seeing how high we could go, them jumping off the swing into the grass. Those were the days.

My 61st painting of the inn becomes a 35th anniversary gift

Mark wanted to surprise his wife Noreen for their 35th wedding anniversary so he asked if I would paint one of their favorite places as a gift for her. He had seen a similar painting I had done that was already sold and asked if I could replicate it for her. I mentioned to him that this was the 61st painting of the inn that I have done over the last several years and it never gets old!

They were staying for a few days at the inn and he had the waitstaff bring it to the table a surprise during their anniversary dinner. So sweet.

Chelsea has found her way home to her cottage on Cape Cod. Chuck said "We’ve missed Chelsea every day since she left us, but today is a little better. Special thanks to @anngorbett for sharing her talent and capturing Chelsea’s sweet soul so well. Also, hug your dog today, they leave us way too soon."

Such a sweet face!

Here are some photos of her new home:
