This old house looks down a rolling hay field with Daisies, Indian Paintbrush and Blueberry Bushes into Somes Harbor on Mt. Desert Island, Maine. It hangs prominently at the current Members' Annual Juried Exhibit at the Newport Art Museum. I am pleased and proud to show you this painting as what I consider my best work of 2013.
