Paint, Paint ,Paint

We're as 'at home' here in SW Florida as we are 'at home' on Boston's South Shore. Friday morning we begin the long drive North. We don't fly because we need a car here and we have two cats. Also, I have too much stuff ;) I've begun to pack up the studio but, in keeping with my new work ethic, (thank you, Rona, eBlogger, KCM, and all who have visited and commented on my work) I still have a few set ups around and did a short block in just to keep at it. I bought this sweet Chinese tableware at Job Lot and the cool towel at Dollar Tree. I'll try to finish it and post it before I go. As an admirer of Trevor Chamberlain's HUGE Landscapes on 6x8 inch boards, I'm also going for that grand scale in a small painting. Blogging is SO my kind of medium. Paint, upload, read a book, go to the pool, take a million photos, whatever. It's the connection with you all that's the fun part.

Thanks and I'll be happy to see all of you!
Trevor is one of my original gods of painting. Talk about controlled brush work that is loose as can be!

Hi Mary,

Nice work. I love the strong confident brush strokes in your paintings. The pieces you've done in Florida bring back some vivid memories of my youth. I was born there and been over most of the state.

Just today I finished the smallest painting I've ever done. It's a 5X7 and it gave me a neck ache. Even though I may have to paint bigger, I look forward to seeing more of your tiny, and larger too of course, gems.
