Summer in A Bottle
About the Painting:
"One of our first stops on Nantucket is always Current Vintage - a brilliant marriage of vintage clothing and wine and one of my favorite shops on the island – where we inevitably pick up some ACK Rosé. It pairs perfectly with just about any ACK-tivity - beach reading, lobster roll gobbling, sunset watching. And the bottle is just whaley darling. The colors are so perfectly Nantucket, so wonderfully summer, that this year I had to paint it. To me, the resulting watercolors are the place and season bottled up to be revisited when we’re deep in the dark and dreary months - a reminder that summer is more than a season, it’s a feeling."
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."
