Today began in such a lovely way. I had time before my schedule began and headed over to the Pond Road Studios in Shelburne to visit with my friend Stephanie, who I’ve not seen in a while. Life gets busy and weird and all kinds of things, and it’s easy for months to go by without seeing friends who live minutes away. Especially now that all of our kids are in full day school. It was so nice to share a cup of coffee before getting to the day’s business.
And I got to meet Steph’s new pup who 100% stole my heart.
Stephanie is a painter~ an extraordinary one. She’s been working on a series of cows that are so beautiful. Her work is very realistic, on the order of, when I look at her cows, I swear I can hear them breathing.
I have one of her paintings, of a woman playing cat’s cradle, the thing you do with your fingers and string. Oh I love it so. I hope to own another in the future. You can look at Steph’s work here, or find some of her pieces at West Branch Gallery in Stowe, Vermont.
It’s so inspiring seeing where artists make their work.
The remainder of the day will involve staying cool, cool in this hot, hot weather.
Hope your weeks are off to a good start.

The ears on that puppy!! I like Stephanie’s work–the Winter pieces appeal more to me than the cows. Maybe having grown up on a dairy farm has something to do with that . . .

Ha! I’m sure that impacts opinion! I love Stephanie’s winter scenes. They are exquisitely detailed and are so beautiful.
