Wisteria & Show Photo

Please come visit my other blog at

Last week I headed to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale because I knew the wisteria had to be in bloom. Instead of painting a large section of the porch on the manor house, I focused a bit on the wisteria itself.

This past weekend I took part in the Art Mart sponsored by the Smithtown Historical Society. It was held in the historic Brush Barn in Smithtown. It was a fun show, even if sales were slow. This is the first time they held the show, so hopefully it will get more popular in the future. Here is a photo of me in front of my spot.


  1. I don't know which is more lovely, the wisteria or you in front of all your paintings. Next time I will try to come out to Smithtown to see the exhibit. It looks like you have tons of work for sale.

  2. Great little painting Joan. Looks like you have plenty of great paintings in that show, too bad it wasn't as successful as you'd have liked.

  3. Joan, these are some beautiful wisteria indeed. I wonder if it would thrive here; I might have to buy one!

  4. GORGEOUS wisteria, Joan -- and so good to 'meet' you again!!! Super grand display ... !!! Sales seem to be slow everywhere ... sigh ... but your work looks brilliant !

  5. Carol - Thanks so much. It would have been fun if you came out.

    David - Thanks! Maybe the next one will be better.

    Sherry - I love the way wisteria looks and smells, but it doesn't stay around long. Thans.

    Lin - Thank you so much!!
