Whenever I hear from my friend, Conky, I remember I still have so much material from her farm to paint. Photos I've taken from the past two summers are high on my list of source material because the paintings come easy and stir such great memories. I spent many summer days and evenings here, in this creek with Conky, our friend Lori and Conky's sisters when we were in elementary school. We were clamming, swimming and just running around the entire farm as our mothers played scrabble in the icehouse and drank wine. I plan to do a larger version of this when I have time, it's on the list.
