Oxeye daisies, perennial sweet peas, and dogs dogs dogs greet me when I arrive at the West Tisbury home of artist, Leslie Baker and her husband, Dr. David Gorenberg.

Leslie and David have created ordered edges in the home landscape.  At a friend’s suggestion they built a dry field stone wall.  It slices through the meadow delineating wild places from kept spaces.  Just as Leslie’s landscape paintings evolve around her placement of a horizon line, the wall allows for the same formal framework waiting for a painter’s palette to shape the kept spaces.
