There are places I visit that feel like dreams come true. When I visited charming Cape May, New Jersey - I felt as if I'd stepped into one of my own romantic canvases. I knew I had to paint Jackson Street, Cape May.
As I set up my easel, a coastal fog rolled in, casting the ornate Victorian buildings in a soft, shimmering light. Street and house lights came on; their reflections glistened in the mirror surface of the damp streets. Umbrellas and lavish flowers opened. Jackson Street, Cape May is a memorable image of the many charms of small town life in America.
