Here is my next piece from Newport. It was a beautiful, sunny day outside so I dragged Steve with me once again to go take some more photographs. The weather is definitely starting to get cooler, so I'm trying to take advantage of these nice days we've been having. Soon all the flowers and leaves will be all gone- but pumpkins are starting to pop up, so I'm thinking of doing some fall inspired burnings in October. Look for this and my other work at the Scituate Art Festival coming up in just a few weeks!

A friend of mine goes on a sailing trip every year, and always comes back with some amazing photographs from around the world. This one he took in Cinque Terre, Italy, and has been hanging on his office wall for years. I asked him if I could use it for my next masterpiece - and here it is. Enjoy!

I've always loved visiting the gorgeous mansions in Newport, RI. Every summer growing up, we would take a drive along scenic Ocean Drive and take a tour of one of the multi-million dollar historical homes on Bellevue Ave. This summer, Steve and I visited Rosecliff for the Garden Show. I had him take a picture of this beautiful statue out on the lawn with it's huge flower arrangement. I love this style, and hope to go back soon to take some more pictures of the beautiful flowers and statues in Newport to add to this collection. Hand woodburned on 13.5"x9.5" oval.
