Think of: A modern mix of expressionism and impressionism, sometimes with a street-art twist. “I just try to paint exactly how I want to and how I feel like I need to. That way, whatever I paint is going to be my hands.”

What caught our eye: A vibrant, vivid, imaginative take on the city of Boston.

Lightbulb moment: “Somewhere between getting out of college in 2005 and now, I just said ‘I’m just going to try to make a go of it as a professional artist.’…I guess it was about a year and a half ago that I made that decision.” Before making a go of being a professional artist, O’Day was an engineer and designer for the Navy.

Naumkeag shows off its rooms inside and out in Stockbridge

STOCKBRIDGE — Naumkeag “cottage” has 44 rooms — that is, if you count only those in the house. Outside garden rooms, designed long before patios and backyard barbeques became a way of life, bring the house outdoors and the outdoors inside.

This summer residence overlooking the Housatonic River Valley was built for Joseph and Caroline Choate in 1885 in the shingle style with a Norman French influence evident in its two steeply pitched towers.

The Choates’ daughter, Mabel, inherited the property and in 1958 bequeathed the house, its contents, and the land to the Trustees of Reservations.
