Provincelands

 

I had a great weekend staying in New Hampshire with my 'little boys' while their parents had a getaway weekend planned by my brother Tom. Big points there ;) 
We set up the paint 'studio' in the kitchen and we all painted together in between spontaneous trips outdoors to swing and draw pirate ships on the driveway and down the entire sidewalk. Believe me, there were many instances of boats burning and pirates jumping overboard, etc. We ate lots of pasta and Saturday was pajama day so we could go outside in our pj's which Colin loved.
Here they are painting in the kitchen. SO SWEET. I adore them.  This little painting is from last week's Cape trip. I set up by the Provincetown Inn and painted the late afternoon light on the marshes.

Precious boys--I know you had a great time. My grandsons spent Friday night and we went crabbing Saturday morning. Provincelands is a lovely painting.

Mary, it sounds like a week-end to remember. That's what it's all about with the grandkids-making memories.
Your painting is beautiful.

Oh my goodness they are so cute! I like your painting...but those boys outshine you a bit! LOL! (Just kidding) I'm glad you had fun!

Love this marsh painting. Gorgeous movement and colors. Lucky little students you have there...do they realize who is teaching them and how gifted you are?:)

Sounds idyllic!!

Everybody wins... you're inspired to paint a great one, the kids get expert painting lessons and the adult kids get an alonetime play date!!! LOL

I never had kids, but this sounds so delightful and warms the heart that they have you in their life!
