In mid-summer the goldenrod and milkweeds bloom in the rolling hills of the northeast corner of our state. I volunteer as a Master Naturalist at the Connecticut Audubon Grassland Sanctuary in Pomfret, CT (where this scene is located). Summer is definitely my favorite time of year! This painting is on cradled wood panel with natural wood edges. It comes 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.
