Summer Days

Partridge Island
It's only been a week? I thought it was longer and was feeling tres guilty about slacking :D  Anyway, I was able to work through the rust and do this painting of summer in Parrsboro for our GirlsJustWannaPaint challenge which goes up tonight. It's summer here and tomorrow the tide will be perfect for a full day at the beach. That's where you'll find me.

More of The Greats

Cooling off in the icy waters of Masschusetts Bay
I'm not really on the lam but it appears that way. Just busy with some gardening, visiting and beaching.  Our weather has switched from cool and breezy to hot and steamy. How hot? 97? Is that hot enough for you? (that's the local phrase during a heat wave) Luckily my new behemoth of an air conditioner handles it quite well and I am grateful for that.  I don't have a good painting to post so I'm giving you a link to the Farnsworth Museum to enjoy. There are three stellar exhibits on until the end of the year by some serious GREATS. Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth and Frank Benson. Enjoy!

In Storage

I love the abstract quality of the boatyard. Love its gritty industrial look. Summer's here though and the boats are all coming out of their shrink wrap. 
Our Girls Just Wanna Paint show is still up at Duxbury Free Library so stop in and see it if you are in the area. Meanwhile I'll get started on another boat painting.

On the Mud

This kind of weather makes me feel good about being inside. Here in cool, gloomy, gray New England I'm tucked into my studio painting boats. This boat is moored at Five Islands, Nova Scotia, where the tide goes out completely, leaving beautiful red mud and rivulets of turquoise water.
After being on Daily Paint Works for a year, I've decided to offer my paintings at auction which gives me the option of starting them at a lower price than the 'buy now' price I've been setting. I know that I like bidding on and winning an item for less than the fixed price and so will you. It does happen ;)

Up On Stilts

I have a file called "my neighborhood" where I store photos of scenes from my beachside neighborhood and the South Shore, the Cape and the region in general. My neighborhood is vast. This is a winter scene from Long Point Marine in Duxbury. 
This painting is available through DPW auctions.
