If this is a gift, I’m happy to include a special note for the recipient or include an extra card for you to write your own message.

This original watercolor painting of “Beltie’s Brunch” was inspired by a gorgeous cow at Aldermere Farm in Rockport, Maine.  I think I spent about an hour talking to the cows (yes) and laughing at the calves’ antics.  This lovely lady was in the center of a group of 5 Belties.  The others were grazing with their heads down, but she was savoring every bite.  We understood each other!

If you look closely, you can see the Lily Pond at Aldermere in the background.  It’s a fun trail to walk as well.  I love the farm when the grass is fresh and lush, with smatterings of clover and other wildflowers.  This was a very fun painting to do.

This whimsical “Beltie’s Brunch” painting would make a perfect gift for someone who loves springtime on the farm.  Could be Aldermere or any farm that has Belties in residence.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are the colors online?

The physical art matches what I see on my computer, but it might look slightly different on yours. For example, the colors are a little more muted on my phone and tablet than on my Mac. Also keep in mind also that the smaller the image, the sharper it appears online and in person.


I don’t provide framing services myself, but I’m happy to make suggestions!  My 8×12″ and 10×14″ original paintings include a double white archival mats and backing board. They are ready to slip into 12×16″ or 10×14″ frames (easy to find). Buying unframed art enables the recipient to choose a frame that perfectly matches their decor.

Should I buy an original painting or a print?

Original paintings require more of a financial investment up front, but they also appreciate more in value over time. There’s also a satisfaction in knowing you have the only original painting. Giclees are more affordable and look exactly like the original paintings, so they are a great option for many.

While many of my collectors only purchase original art, others like to mix it up with both originals and giclees. It really depends on your budget and philosophy as a collector. If you’re just looking for some pretty paintings to add color or to give as a gift, giclees are a perfect choice.


I recommend taping pieces of computer paper together to create a mockup the same size as your art. You can even tape it to your wall with blue framer’s tape get a sense of scale.  When you’re thinking about the frame size, you should add an additional 2-4″ on each side to account for the frame width.

I’m happy to help walk you through this process – just contact me.

Do you have an open studio?

I wish! My studio is pretty small, so the best place to view my art is online. I include inspiration photos to help you visualize art in your home. I also have a selection of paintings and prints available at Small Wonder Gallery in Camden, Maine.

Do you accept commissions?

Yes! Please visit my Commissions page to learn more about the process, pricing, and more.
