Hydrangea Hues, North Wharf Nantucket
About the Painting:
"My favorite place to walk to view Nantucket in bloom, sometimes it's hard to see where the flowers on the Old North Wharf leave off and the gray shingled cottages begin. Lydia perches on the edge of the wharf on a strip of green lawn bordered by a white picket fence. Its blue door coordinates perfectly with the summer-hued hydrangeas blooming in its garden. It seems like through some sort of magic, the season itself might live inside."
About the Collection:
"Inspired by that moment when roses are in first blush and hydrangeas are colored in perfect blues, lavenders and pinks - when summer seems to stretch out endlessly ahead of us.
We were lucky enough to spend some time on Nantucket at this very moment last June, and I wish those days could have lasted forever – or at least that I could bottle them up and uncork them on bleak January days or gray and rainy March afternoons.
Nantucket is always the essence of summer to me – hydrangeas on the North Wharf, roses climbing over ‘Sconset rooftops, bike rides and beach walks, rosé and lobster rolls. Capturing them in paint is my way of making summer last well beyond a date in the calendar. My hope is that they make the season’s most beautiful memories last for you."
