I'm currently working on a piece for Yankee Magazine. Lori Pedrick, the art director, calls me about once a year to illustrate what is usually a wonderfully written personal essay about New England and the author's connection to some aspect of the landscape. The current one is about mending a fence.
This is the piece, about 75% done.
The first piece that Lori commissioned from me was for an article "A Fierce Yellow Light". The author told of her affection for the maligned Norwegian Maple.
Finally, this landscape was for a description of the end of Autumn and the "coming of another kind of beauty".
Thank you to Lori and Yankee for good assignments. I'll post more of my Yankee paintings later.
