Maple Grove Farm

Maple Grove Farm

My recent artwork, Maple Grove Farm has been out traveling in exhibits - this farm is owned by friends in Vermont; here is the story behind it.


Maple Grove Farm, built in 1902 sits high on a mountain ridge in Windsor county Vermont.  Surrounded by maple trees, this dairy and horse barn has been in the Maynard family for many years.  These beautiful trees are also tapped for their delicious maple syrup production. 

Maple Grove Farm has an interesting history….early on a family from the city offered to switch homesteads with the Maynard’s to try life in the country.  The family agreed and this experiment continued for a few years!  Eventually the families decided they preferred their original lifestyles and switched back.  A new generation continues to farm Maple Grove as this iconic Vermont barn continues to age gracefully.Maple Grove Farm Detail

First Ballet Class

First Ballet Class

hoping our new little ballerina will dance to her dreams and live by these words:

I Hope You Dance

 

 I hope you never lose your sense of wonder

You get your fill to eat but always hunger

May you never take one single breath for granted

God forbid love leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance

 

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

Never settle for the path of least resistance

Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking

Loving might be a mistake but it's worth making

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter

When you come close to selling out reconsider

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the chance to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance

(by  Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers)

 

Grow and Glow

We just celebrated Brady's first birthday - I made a keepsake "Fire Fly" Mason Jar for his special day and wanted to share it with you. 

I had drawn a mason jar in black ink and using a yellow ink pad, finger-printed each of the birthday party guests.  I then asked each guest to make a "Fire Fly" out of their fingerprint and sign their name below it.  Everybody enjoyed making funny little fire flys inspite of the fact they had one yellow inked finger for the rest of the day!
