“The house in Joel Babb’s Blue Victorian, Nantucket vaults skyward. I love how this painting makes me feel like I’m craning my neck even when I’m looking directly at it. Clear sunlight picks out the Victorian architectural frills on this Nantucket homestead, the clean white trim contrasting with robin’s egg blue siding. The very tips of tree branches recall Sunday morning walks down the shaded cobblestone streets.”
-Tyler Prince, Director of Sales

I particularly loved the gracious old architecture and the vast overshadowing trees of Nantucket, both of which speak of the passage of time and a vanished world.
