This is a special piece created while I was an Artist-in-Residence at the Connecticut Audubon Society's Edwin Way Teale property in August 2015.  Teale was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and naturalist living in Connecticut. His property was bequeathed to the CT Audubon Society to continue his preservation efforts in the world.  I feel very fortunate, humbled, and honored to have spent a week living and painting in the home and property of this man. The trails, plantings, and ponds of the property, named Trail Wood, were a great inspiration to me. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished brown edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Roxanne

Some paintings have the power to draw a person from across the room. Those are the artworks that Roxanne Steed loves the most. For her, the two best things about a painting are color and texture. To add interesting edges to her paintings, she uses everything from a palette knife to a squeegee. She loves celebrating the beauty of life and enjoys gardening — including “therapeutic weeding” — and planning where to travel next. She has traveled to Ireland for many years to paint.
