Rubber Duckie You're the One 4x4

I should've been a stand up comedienne with these title's. It's true. I have a bit of a corny side but, I wouldn't dare publish this post without a link to Rubber Duckie. At some point in the '70's you could actually hear this on a bar room jukebox. That speaks volumes about the '70's. If you want a good laugh click here to hear Bert & Ernie sing Rubber Duckie in Hebrew!

You Say Tomato 5x5

This is a little study I did in about half an hour.
I planted a whole package of Beefsteak tomato seeds (from the dollar store) when I arrived here in January. There are about 25 of them all in different stages of growth. I gave away some of the bigger ones which are already sporting flowers, to my neighbors. Still I have about a dozen left and some are still tiny. I planted one in a coffee can just so I could paint it. I'm entertaining the idea of bringing a few of them home with me in the car when we drive North in May. That's a typical snowbird kind of craziness. As if I could fit another thing into the car, the way I usually pack.

Partridge Island 6x8

Don sat in the car reading while I did this little painting of Partridge Island in beautiful Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. The rock formations are dramatic here on the Fundy Shore. It's a geologists dream.

Just the Two of Us 5x5

I'm very into the produce section of the super market. So many colors and shapes. I'd like to set up right there and paint all the lovely veggies.

Light House Mist 8x10

This Lighthouse is in Parrsboro Nova Scotia on the magnificent Bay of Fundy. We spend two weeks in June here in a little cottage on the shore. That happens to still be black fly season there but the lupines are in bloom and that's a can't miss situation. So I have my bug spray and my benadryl spray and my paints and I'm one happy woman. Don and I consider the 11 hour drive well worth it and you should too. Don't miss out on the beauty of the Canadian Maritimes.

Looks A Bit Seedy 5x5

Tommy, Anne and the babies went out to the beach this afternoon and I scurried to the studio and painted this orange, picked while riding around the Park on Pat's 3 wheeler with Ryan in the rear basket. It seems to take longer to edit and upload the painting than it does to paint it.

Duxbury Shore

SOLD Since my brother and his family (two toddlers) are here visiting me in Florida, I had to lock up the studio for a week. I did this painting onsite near where I live. The little marsh 'cottage' that was a landmark there has recently been replaced with a bigger house. This painting is in the collection of an art lover from Beacon Hill.

Capri Boat Yard 6"x8"

This is another painting from my day in Isles of Capri. I don't mind saying that I had an awful time getting a good photo of this one. I'm a bit behind in posts because my Mama was here visiting me in sunny, but chilly, SW Florida. I know, I know. It's better than home.
