The Lobster Pot Gardens...an Artist's Spiritual Inspiration

Every year at this time...I get a longing in my heart when I see my beautiful gardens... the colors..the compositions....

I....so........ want to have the time to capture them on canvas.

 

I just put together a collage of some photos I took from this spring's color show till just today when all the summer flowers are in bloom..I hope you enjoy seeing the gardens as much as I do...this lovely Lobster Pot is a very special place..

The Redding-Weston-Easton Patch visits The Lobster Pot Studio, Gallery and Gardens

Yesterday, July 12th, while working on a commission of a President of a Company...I recieved a phone call asking if The Lobster Pot was open. Well, of course my first reaction was that someone was calling to make a resevation for Lunch....I have many calls from people thinking that The Lobster Pot is a resaurant....Anyway...no it was a delightful young lady, Liz Young, from The Patch, calling to do an interview. So, 2 hours later she appeared  and spent the next hour touring the Studio, Gardens and House.

 She  did a great job and overed all the bases...

Here is her Patch article:
