Straight Wharf in Bloom, Nantucket
About the Painting:
"Whether we're picking up a Boat Basin picnic at Provisions (Turkey Terrific for me, please) or on our way to Cru for champagne and oysters, I always stop to check on the hydrangeas in front of the Straight Wharf sign - the state of their blooms always seem to mark the progress of the summer season."
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 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."
