Walking around Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts one early spring morning in 2013 was such an unexpected treat. Our daughter, Amanda, came with us from Boston. The white trim and picket fences everywhere are so amazing when that morning sun strike.. Wrought iron whales over doorways, nautical symbols everywhere, widow's walks on top of houses, unbelievable scenery of lighthouses, boats, ferries and of course, sharks. Well, not really, but Jaws was filmed there. I came upon these steps that felt like such a warm welcome to the home. I snapped a picture and later did the study and the fianl 12 x 16 painting.
