Painting Out 2012

Inspired by Matisse 6x6 
Another year goes over the cliff....Oh, wait, I'm listening to too much radio if I'm talking that way ;)  
I deem 2012 the year of the over used cliche.
Anyway, I have had the busiest December ever, including a second trip to Maine, this time to see the Winslow Homer exhibit at the Portland Museum of Art. In case you've never been, it's a first class Museum and very easy to get around. 
It snowed that weekend and my pal Sally Dean and I had a ball, slippin' and slidin' on the sidewalks of the city.
Be sure to visit Girls Just Wanna Paint tomorrow to see our Matisse inspired works. Here's a sneak peek of mine but I must say that the girls outdid themselves with this one!!! 
I also signed up to do Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days beginning...well, pretty much, right now.

The View from the Irish Pub overlooking the Portland Ferry docks.
Happy New Year all and thanks for all your love and support. It's much appreciated!

Happy New Year Mary, since we all didn't evaporate on 12-21-12 I guess we're stuck doing it all over again, aren't we. :)
I wish you good health and prosperity in 2013.

Great way to start the New Year, Mary! Painting is a beauty. Can't wait to see what's to come.

I'm so glad that you got to go to the museum. I try to go whenever I'm back.
The picture of the docks crosses senses -- I can smell the fog! The gentrification of Commercial St. amazes me.

I am basking in the glow of this glorious hot-colored painting!!!
