The Weathered Look


Even on brightly colored buildings, the cycles of nature's seasons leave their mark in New England - rusty nail heads, cracked or peeling paint, fading colors......

My favorite look is the multicolored weathered cedar shingles that grace so many buildings, the warm browns fade to silver over time......

....and fully aged, they develop a shimmering silvery patina - coincidentally, just like the hair on my head.


Elsewhere, this old wagon wheel rusts and pits despite a coat of gold paint.

This boat also displays the faded and chipped finish of seasons of wear.  New England has a dynamic climate with four distinct and different seasons.
