New : October Road 48 x 36
This old farm sits on a sharp corner on a country road in my town, surrounded by maples and pines. It reminds me of the up-Island town of Chilmark, on Martha’s Vineyard, where I lived many years ago. The road, and the house, conjure memories (especially this time of year) of the rural, isolated country roads of the Vineyard. I named this piece, “October Road.” The name sounded familiar, and I thought maybe I’d named another piece this. Coincidentally, it turns out, it’s actually the name of an album by @jamestaylor_com , another Vineyarder, which made the title feel perfect.
