fresh picked blueberries


Don't you just love blueberries?  Nothing says summer more than blueberries, seeing them on display in the produce aisle or at an open road side stand makes me think that Summer can not be far away.  I think of making fresh blueberry muffins, blueberry pancakes, blueberry cobbler. This "pint" of berries are from Maine, a low-bush variety.   Maine looks like this, water, boats, blueberries and Lobster boats.

 One wants to dive right in these adirondack chairs and watch the time of day and boats go right by.  Eating a bowl full of fresh vanilla ice cream and some blueberries, now that is easy living.

I am eating blueberries as we speak, in my cereal. Um, so yummy.

BTW, are your illustrations that you post on the blog for sale? That may be a stupid question:) I love the one you a while back, "april showers" or something like that.

Melissa,

Thanks for inquiring about the sale of my artwork!
Currently, I do work on a custom commission basis but am thinking that I need some prints for sale since I do get so many requests and it would make perfect sense. e-mail me with a specific project.
happy to oblige.

I love the wash-y quality of your watercolors.

If you make prints of those watercolors available, do let me know. I have some prints from Perkins Cove in Maine that would be complimented beautifully by your lovely works!
