Minkcove Fall

10" x 16" Oil on Board
This little patch of beauty is down the road from my studio and looking out over Minkcove toward Little Harbor, which is part of Buzzards Bay.  The marsh grasses always set the seasons through their changing colors.

Ely Cathedral

The Ship of the Fens, Ely Cathedral is one of those beautifully melded Norman and Gothic structures.

Durham Cathedral

Durham Cathedral has these massive Norman columns.  There are 3 different patterns used on the columns, carved at the quarry and assembled on site.  After the lightness of the Gothic Cathedrals, the Norman structure is pleasing to the eye.

Desperately Seeking Rebus

Wayne and I both read the Ian Rankin's Rebus series, which is set in Edinburgh.  So, we set out one afternoon to find the Oxford Bar where Rebus regularly soothes his malt yearnings.  It was a small, small bar area with a few locals quietly scrutinizing our entrance. A small ante room offer reprieve from the glares and a spot to have a pint and laugh about life.

Yorke Arms Cottage

The Yorke Arms is a Michelin starred restaurant and an inn located in Yorkshiredales.  We stayed there one night.  Behind the Arms and across a wonderfully coffee colored brook (from the peat and heather) sits this quintessential ivy covered English cottage.  Behind it the hills roll in hues of green segmented by stone walls corralling sheep.  Can you stand it?  The yard of the cottage falls down toward the brook where fern and flora bloom.
