This painting was inspired by the bittersweet vines that drape the trees on the Maine coast. In autumn, as the leaves turn, the pale orange berries on the bittersweet burst open exposing brilliant orange-red seeds.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
