View from The Codman 8x10

I'm suffering serious Codman withdrawal thus the huge gap in posting. Luckily some of my dearest friends and fellow sufferers understand and have given a shoulder to cry on and really, that's all you need isn't it? Then you're fine. I didn't get this painting in a moment too soon. They started removing the siding a day later. All the windows were covered in plastic. I hope this fabulous chimney is part of the new design. I love it.

I hear you on the chimney..when I was across the hall from you I used to look at it but never really did anything with it. I also liked the maze of wires on the poles around it...I at least got a photo of it...sigh....

Debbie, I was so psyched when I saw that you were set up next to me :(
NOT :?
You didn't miss much. Crowd was fairly steady but I sold nothing. Photographers sold and the "shade" guy who replaced you did a brisk business passing out cards. He attaches the fabric of your choice to various styles of shades. "Is it Art?" he's ask people who approached the fabric covered shades hung on the fence, and they'd say "Sure is",every single time.
Ok, interior decor is not fine art.
WHAT EVER.
Paula, is that not the most wonderful view? The building really has character. The day I painted this, I was all alone in my wing. It was a Sunday. Glorious breeze coming through all of the opened studio doors and windows. Hot.
I think I channeled Edward Hopper.

Mary,
I'm sorry about the building. I wish we could preserve more of the old architecture. you were successful in channeling Edward Hopper.

Hopper, Hopper, can you hear me???? I think you're going to come up with some very creative solutions to your studio situation. When you get settled anew.... paintings are going to flow out of you like LAVA - hot, hot hot!!! And your set up looked VERY good at the Bristol festival. Very vibrant - maybe your should have 'velcroed' them to shades.....

Hi Mary! Thank you for your comments, Oh! Your paintings are fabulous! I love the colors.. (very much into shades of turquoise and orange right now..) How are things down south?
:) Abbie
Glad you stopped by my blog!

Very unusual teal on the roof but the yellows in the trees and the unique color red really ENHANCE the teal beautifuul!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

Kelley. thank you.
Rona, I want to move to Michael's building.
Abbie, thanks for stopping in.
Leslie, glad to see you here again.

About the teal roof? I'd like to say it was planned that way but it 'just happened'. When I'm working though, I am assessing color harmony and if something feels right I don't question it. I love the building and it comes through.

I love your painting of the Codman, it's a great tribute to a great building. I hope your new studio brings you as much joy as the Codman did!
