November 30, 2018Color Me New EnglandThere is nothing as beautiful as the colors of fall in New England and in my estimation an artist pallet cannot compare to the blending of colors created by Mother Nature.

Early Fall to me is the most beautiful time of the year, it brings with it bright sunshine, but a hint of Fall with chilly mornings and evenings. Nature paints vibrant colors on its foliage, blending together reds, rusts, oranges and yellows in a way that no artist’s palette can compete with. I o...
