In honor of Halloween…

Those of you who know me know I’m deathly afraid of spiders. But even I was awed by the webs along Shore Path one morning this past summer. Fortunately, none of the residents were home at the time.

Shore Path, which runs along Frenchman’s Bay in Bar Harbor, Maine, is lined with rosehip bushes chock full of rosehips. On that particular morning, they were covered with all sizes and shapes of spider webs. I wonder if, like snow flakes, each one is unique. The web covered bushes reminded me of the day after Halloween when you awake to a yard full of toilet paper, thanks to the antics of the neighborhood teens.

You can see one of the views from Shore Path in my painting, Grant Park .

“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to…. The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.”                                                 Vincent Van Gogh
